Give iTunes the Boot
For years, iTunes has been the program/store that’s done it all, from music to TV, to movies, to podcasts, to iPod games, to apps, to books, to data management, contacts, calendars, and more. If you’re like me, you can remember a time when iTunes was the central hub for all your “iDevices.”
But over time, many of its services have been moved to other apps or are being accomplished by other means. It’s time to give iTunes a proper burial.
As of now, books are purchased in the Books app, and podcasts are managed in the Podcasts app. Apps can be bought or downloaded in the App Store. Music, movies, and shows can be managed in the Music and TV apps. It’s time to kill iTunes and let movies and music be purchased in their corresponding apps.
As mentioned earlier, let tones be purchased directly from the Sounds settings (I wonder if we could also have a wallpaper store 🤔). Apple already does this with every app, including third-party apps. Purchases and downloads are completed through the respective app; so it doesn’t make sense to keep iTunes on at this point.
