New Apple Support Document Details Upcoming iTunes Changes in macOS Catalina
Earlier this week, Apple previewed the upcoming macOS 10.15 Catalina which replaces iTunes with its popular entertainment apps i.e. Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, and the Apple TV app. Today, the company has created a new support document to answer all the questions related to the upcoming iTunes changes in macOS (via MacRumors).
One of the most frequent questions concerns device management and syncing, which is currently done through iTunes. In Catalina, Apple is transitioning device management functionality to the Finder app, and when you plug an iOS device into your Mac, it will be listed as an available device on the left side of the window, with all of the same controls and information.
Apple’s support document notes that the Music app will feature all of the music that you’ve imported or purchased, and the iTunes Store is still going to be available in the Music app for making music purchases. Apple Music will also be available in the Music app.
Similarly, any TV shows and Movies that you’ve purchased or rented from iTunes will be listed in the upcoming Apple TV app and it will also be used for future purchases and rentals.
Apple notes that all of your subscribed podcasts will be transitioned over to the new Podcasts app, whereas audiobooks will be accessible in the Apple Books app for Mac.
