At the March presentation, Apple told us that the updated app Apple News+ and Apple TV+ will be available on the Mac. But this, it seems that the Corporation does not intend to stop – it became known that the company is working on new applications for desktop operating system. It is expected that the updated program will be part of the macOS 10.15.
Apparently, Apple may abandon iTunes, as previously predicted by developer Steve Troughton-Smith. But not in the form in which we expected. Enthusiast said that the Corporation is developing a new application for services “Music”, “Podcasts” and “Books”. Today, this information has been confirmed by information shared 9to5Mac.
At the disposal of journalists was the publication of data on the progress of development, but the new app icons. They will look the following way.
So what changes await us?
First and foremost, to change the application “Books”. The program will borrow design with Apple News, and will get a sidebar and quick access to relevant sections: Library, Store, and Audiobooks. In the library itself, the files will be divided into three categories: books, audiobooks, PDF files.
Application “Music”and “Podcasts” will also be seriously reworked. Unfortunately, more precise information at the moment. We only know that all apps will be cross platform — thanks to the initiative of “Marzipan” which allows you to transfer application from iPad to Mac without significant code changes.
The source claims that the new app will be shown at WWDC 2019, along with the announcement of macOS 10.15. However, completely from iTunes the company is not going to give up, because Apple has no other solution to sync Mac with iPhone and iPad.
