Sometimes even the most revolutionary things become obsolete.

Such is the case with iTunes, Apple's once-incredible music management app. ITunes is approaching its 20th year of existence and, while there are logistical reasons why Apple can't simply say goodbye to the ancient app, it's finally time to put it in a home

The good news is like it might be. The 2019 Worldwide Developers Conference is next week and Apple's keynote address is expected to feature plenty of software announcements, including standalone apps for music and podcasts (among others) for macOS.

Rumors of Apple splitting up iTunes on laptops and desktops have been around since April and will be found on WWDC.

This could be great news for music lovers who like to organize and listen to their tunes on macOS. The iTunes app is famously slow and painful to use. While it was revelatory when digital music libraries were still novel and exciting, it eventually became bloated with the inclusion of podcasts, audiobooks, TV shows, and movies.

Having more apps on your Mac's might be a little cumbersome, but splitting them up could ultimately make them more efficient and useful. Of course, it seems like iTunes will live on, since Mac users need a way to download music and sync devices. However, the standalone music app would most likely emphasize Apple Music. That would be great for people who subscribe to the paid service, but it also presents one of the potential downsides of breaking up iTunes: the already tenuous state of digital music ownership could become even worse.

However, leaked screenshots of the Music app acquired by 9to5Mac should allay these concerns. It looks like it has separate tabs for Apple Music streaming and your downloaded library of songs from iTunes, much like how the mobile Music app works on iOS.

Assuming the new music app, it should be a victory for music lovers who regularly use macOS. iTunes had a good run, now it's denying it. But it's time for the world to move on. If Apple actually moves forward with its rumored plans, life could be easier for those who have suffered with the tedious, poorly optimized app for years.
