Purchasing and downloading music from iTunes will soon be a thing of the past with the iTunes store expected to shut down on March 31, 2019, according to sources.
It’s only been a week since Apple Executive Jimmy Lovine suggested shutting down the music store when “people stop buying.”
“If I’m honest, it’s when people stop buying. It’s very simple,” he told the BBC.
Apple’s music streaming service, Apple Music, has grown exponentially, which in turn has impacted the sales on iTunes.
The store won’t be shut down immediately; customers will have plenty of warning during the phase-out period.
They have also made it clear that all past purchases and downloads will still work on all Apple deceives. They are simply removing the paid downloading service.
