Other added features include the new Calculator app and the Voice Memos app that were only previously available to iPhones and iPads. When Apple TV is up and running (and iTunes is laid to rest once and for all) what ever films and TV shows you own will be shifted from the library section of iTunes to the library section of Apple TV.
According to a report from tech website Ars Technica, Microsoft Windows users won't notice any changes to their iTunes app; however, it's unclear how long the company will support the Windows software moving forward.
When Mac users update their software to the new Catalina OS rolling out this autumn, music now in their library will transfer to the Apple Music app. "Users will appreciate how they can expand their workspace with Sidecar, enabling new ways of interacting with Mac apps using iPad and Apple Pencil".
This new feature comes at a time most need for Apple as previous year the brand came under scrutiny for throttling the processor speeds of iOS devices with degraded batteries in order to prolong the device life as much as possible. "The new apps organise your media just like the same apps on iOS".
"Users will have access to their entire music library, whether they downloaded the songs, purchased them or ripped them from a CD", reads a press release. The app is retained for Windows, and iTunes users on Windows will still be able to enjoy it and its functions. Even if you have a developer account, and that's who the first beta is aimed at, you'll have to install the latest macOS or Xcode betas before you can download and restore the iOS 13 beta images to your iPhone.
Interestingly, the iTunes Store will still be available to buy music on Mac, iOS, PC, and Apple TV. While Apple continues to support older iPhone models, it is the battery that gives up and users are forced to pay a hefty amount to replace the battery.
