We’ve previously discovered the new standalone Music app for the next major version of macOS, 10.15. According to that post the new Music app would be made using Marzipan, that lets iOS app run on the Mac. We recently were informed that this information was correct, after reaching out with the OS developer team.
The new macOS app will be an AppKit application, based off of iTunes. It will include many features the current iTunes users make use of, including things such as smart playlists, advanced library management, syncing wit iPods and iOS devices, and even disc reading and burning.
This final version of the upcoming update will be the last one coming from iTunes 12.7, which was updated to focus on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts and audiobooks. With new standalone apps for all media types on macOS 10.15, iTunes becomes focused on just music and gets renamed to Music, like its counterpart on iOS.
It’s possible that an older version of iTunes will be kept available for users who need extra features, as with the current version that’s available for download and includes App Store, support for ringtones, and other legacy features.
