Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. That's likely to start to change when the Mac receives its own Podcasts app later this year, and Apple has also now revamped its podcast web interface. Marzipan is Apple's initiative to bring iOS apps and functionality to macOS using parts of the official iOS app framework UIKit. So the reports of Apple pulling the plug - not in entirety - on iTunes doesn't really come as a surprise.More news: Democrats set new deadline on Trump tax returns
Well-known Apple developers, Guilherme Rambo and Steve Troughton-Smith, have independently verified Apple's plans to split up iTunes into three separate apps. It's been far too long since the name represented the actual content - MP3 files downloaded from the iTunes music store. These days, though, I rarely use iTunes. Apple Music could mean the end of individual music file purchases, while Apple TV could potentially end the purchase of movie files. Keep in mind there's already a Books app for MacOS, but that could get a Marzipan version so it's more like the iOS app that launched last with iOS 12. There's nothing worse than rocking the boat when it comes to the reactionary state of consumers right this minute.
