A report from Bloomberg states that Apple may get rid of its iTunes service during the developers conference. The iTunes service has been running for more than 20 years now and has been Apple’s main music playing app on Macs. However, in the last few years, Apple has given up on the product and has been slowly drifting apart. Bloomberg believes that Apple will replace the iTunes service with a better application. The report suggests that the company could announce three new applications called Music, TV, and Podcasts.

These new apps will replaced iTunes and will be a big change for Apple. iTunes has been around since 2001, but over time, the app has become slower and introduced several unwanted features. The service was also closely tied with iPod and related to its success. We will have to wait to see what Apple plans on bringing to the table now. 

Apart from this, other reports and leaks have also surfaced that give us some new details on what iOS 13 will offer. Apparently, one of the new features coming to iOS 13 will include a new volume indicator. The previous volume ringer heads up will be removed and replaced with this new indicator, which looks similar to the indicator in the Control Center.

Also coming to iOS 13 is a new Calculator app for the iPad, as per a leak. If you are an iPad user, you would know that there is no stock calculator app available. According to a leakster, iOS 13 will include one and it will use a floating window instead of showing up fullscreen. However, we would suggest that you take this with a pinch of salt and hold your excitement till the start of WWDC 2019.
