Apple has announced it will break its long-running iTunes application on Mac computers into 3 separate applications: Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple TV.
These changes come with the newest OS update for Macs called Catalina, the tech company announced during a developers' conference in California.
Earlier, the company already implemented a similar approach for its mobile devices — the iPhone and iPad. The iTunes app has been launched 16 years ago, as an application for iPod music player.
According to an AP report, the Cupertino-based tech giant will focus on digital services such as video streaming in an effort to compensate for "eroding sales" of its leading product, the iPhone.
The new software update would also allow for using iPads as a second display for Mac computers, Apple announced Monday.
Another privacy-focused feature will allow users to share their location with applications just once, instead of constantly. The feature likewise blocks apps from using wireless networks to determine users' locations.
Apple's decision to focus on privacy comes after major breaches and other privacy issues that have plagued both Google and Facebook in recent years.
