Apple’s iOS for iPad might be rebranded iPadOS today

Tuesday, 04 Jun, 2019

Apple Inc.'s Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook and other leaders will be presenting the updates at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California, beginning June 3. Federighi revealed that the functions in iTunes would be split into three separate applications - Apple Music, Podcasts and Apple TV.

Apple is officially killing its bloated iTunes app. Rumors surfaced late last week and came to fruition this afternoon.

Users may no longer need rely on a laptop to manage their Apple gadgets.

Apple has been working on a suite of tools, called Project Catalyst, to easily enable iOS app developers to port their software to macOS.

The updates, set to be introduced in iOS 13, are aimed at turning making iPads more capable of replacing laptops.

Currently, the only way to install Apple Watch apps is by downloading them via the Watch app on iPhone.

The new apps will feature new sidebars and clearer menus that aim to be easier to navigate compared to iTunes.

Apple is enhancing the health and fitness features of its Apple Watch, including adding a new app for women to track their menstrual cycles.

Apple is expected to announce the closure of iTunes during its Keynote address.

The accounts, from where all pictures, posts and videos were removed, were subsequently redirected to the official Apple TV pages for both services respectively.

Apple's privacy push continued on Monday when the company announced "Sign in with Apple", a login service meant to block all the tracking that comes with social logins like Facebook and Google's login.

Apple also showed off a new Mac Pro desktop computer, a machine that developers and other pro-users have been clamoring for since Apple launched a much-criticized Mac Pro in 2013.

Voice Memos lets you record, well, voice recordings just like you would on iOS. If nothing else, this is another indication that Apple is phasing out iTunes.

Apple could also use the event to give more information about the rollout of the Apple TV+ streaming service, which will feature a range of original content involving some of Hollywood's biggest names, including Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.
