Apple Is Killing iTunes, But Not on Windows

At WWDC 2019, Apple announced it’s killing iTunes. iTunes will be replaced by separate Music, TV, and Podcasts apps… but only on macOS. Windows users will keep the current iTunes app they know and (often don’t) love.
Apple made fun of iTunes’ bloat at WWDC 2019, showing off a video of Calendar and even Safari integrated into iTunes before announcing iTunes would be broken up. On a Mac, it’ll be Apple Music, Podcasts, and Apple TV.
But what about Windows? Well, Apple didn’t mention iTunes for Windows at all. Billboard’s Micah Singleton says Apple told him that iTunes would continue existing in its current state on Windows.
