There had been many speculations regarding the tech giant’s planning to dissolve the music service it launched in 2001.
Early this month, Apple has announced that the 18 years old iTunes is to be replaced by Apple Music, Apple TV and Apple Podcasts.
The tech giant also disclosed that they are planning a number of new privacy measures. That will take form in a new sign-in model that will be an alternative to logging into apps using social media accounts, which will be hiding the user’s email address and data.
“Privacy is a fundamental human right,” said Apple’s software chief Craig Federighi.
iTunes will remain unchanged on Windows platforms, and downloads will still be available in a sidebar on the Apple Music app for Macs.
