According to Bloomberg, Apple will announce at its Worldwide Developer Conference on Monday that iTunes is shutting down.

First launched in 2001, the app revolutionized music ownership and consumption. However, with modern-day streaming services, the app is no longer as relevant. Instead, Apple will split it into three different apps — Music, TV, and Podcasts. This is in line with the separate music, TV, and podcast apps already available on iPhones and iPads.

Earlier in the week, leaks surfaced that showed what the apps could look like in MacOS 10.15, but until now it wasn’t clear that they would be replacing iTunes.
