  • Apple is reportedly migrating iTunes domain to Apple Music.
  • This further solidifies reports saying Apple is pulling the plug on iTunes.
  • The company may announce the development at WWDC.

A day after it was reported that Apple is pulling the plug on its music-related service iTunes, a media report has somewhat confirmed the development. Citing developer Craig Hockenberry, Apple Insider reported that the Cupertino-based company has started to migrate the domains away from iTunes.Apple.com to music.apple.com. This further solidifies the claims of iTunes shutting down. It is expected that the iPhone-maker would announce the development at its annual WWDC 2019.

The publication says that it starting keeping tab on tracks that were still hosted on the itunes.apple.com domain. A day later, it found that some of the tracks moved to music.apple.com. Application links and movies were still on the iTunes domain, it said. Apple is reportedly separating out its Music and Podcasts elements from iTunes on macOS. Apple has also removed the social media page of iTunes from Instagram, and has deleted all content from iTunes' Facebook page.

Apple iTunes is a media library and player that allows users to purchase, manage, and play multimedia files on their Macs and Windows PCs. It has been around for nearly two decades, the service was also used to ‘sync’ music and videos to iPhones. It was launched for macOS in early 2001, followed by a Windows version in 2003. The iPod models that do not support Apple Music natively depend on iTunes for media management.

In its Apple WWDC prediction report, Bloomberg wrote, “This year, Apple is finally ready to move into a new era. The company is launching a trio of new apps for the Mac – Music, TV, and Podcasts – to replace iTunes. That matches Apple’s media app strategy on iPhones and iPads. Without iTunes, customers can manage their Apple gadgets through the Music app.”
