With Apple’s newest Mac update, prepare to say goodbye to iTunes. After almost 20 years of music purchasing services, the music software was replaced following the newest update called MacOS Catalina. While the update did come out of nowhere, many did anticipate it happening at some point of time.
Taking its place, iTunes will be replaced by a trio of apps including Apple TV, Apple Music, and Podcasts.
The Apple Music app will focus solely on music streaming and finding new music. Apple TV allows you to watch your movie downloads, and when the new Apple TV+ launches you can play shows from there on it as well.

And also, DJ’s: heed this tweet’s warning with caution.
For any and all DJs:
DO NOT UPDATE YOUR MAC TO THE NEW CATALINA OS, IT COMPLETELY DELETES YOUR ITUNES AND WILL NOT READ XML FILES FOR YOUR SERATO, TRAKTOR OR REKORDBOX.
Just a warning, here’s some more info: https://t.co/HN2nnw5Wi9
