Apple MacOS Catalina Bids Farewell to iTunes for Good

By 5 days ago

iTunes may have once been the top tier of revolutionary music sales, but many people have foregone the application in favor of subscription services like Spotify and Apple Music.

Now, Apple is pushing iTunes into its grave after nearly two decades. The music store will now be hidden on Mac for anyone who was previously subscribed to Apple Music. However, the transition is proving difficult for DJs who used iTunes to help manage their music.

Catalina is replacing iTunes with Music, which looks fairly similar to the iTunes app and still features your library after you reboot your Mac with the update.

With MacOS Catalina, other amenities will become available, such as more secure privacy options for the Apple Watch as well as visible Screen Time to track your device usage across all devices.
