macOS 10.15 To Split iTunes

Ever since Apple proclaimed that the TV app is coming to the mac later this year, the idea of Project Marzipan was all over again being used to require to take an iOS app and port it to the mac.

That, it was hoped, meant we’d finally see the breakup of iTunes and developer Steve Troughton-Smith suggested that he had found evidence that meant we’d see new Music, Podcasts, and Books apps aboard TV once macOS 10.15 ships later in the year. Now, 9to5Mac’s Guilherme Rambo has chimed in, and it’s excellent news.

Rambo has been ready to create a reputation a name as someone who is great at finding tidbits in existing beta code that points to new features and products, and he says that he has been ready to severally ensure that Troughton-Smith’s confidence isn’t unfounded. He too believes that Music, Podcasts, TV, and Books will see new apps in macOS 10.15, with the latter wanting the same as the new Mac-based News app.

Rambo also confirms that Marzipan is being employed to form all of this happen and once more suggests that every one of these points to the death of iTunes as we all know it. The app has become massively bloated over the years, and if some of these apps are indeed incoming, then iTunes as we all know it wants not to exist.

“The new Music, Podcasts, and TV apps will be made using Marzipan, Apple’s new technology designed to facilitate the porting of iPad apps to the Mac without too many code changes.”

We’ll get some additional concrete information on what these apps can appear as if and what it all suggests that for iTunes as we tend to get ever closer to WWDC in June, once betas of macOS 10.15 will become accessible. Until then, we’ll consider the work people like Rambo and Troughton-Smith are doing. Long may it continue, too.
