Today is Friday, June 14. Here’s what you need to know:
Apple announced the discontinuation of iTunes after 18 years.
Instead of iTunes acting as a catchall, Apple is creating three separate applications: one for music, one for television and one for podcasts.
For people worried about their music, TV and movie purchases or their podcasts getting deleted or disappearing, Apple has ensured each purchase and download will be safely stored in the new app upon updating.
The bottom line is, people will still be able to download their entertainment as per usual, just without iTunes and with separate applications.
