It has always been rumoured that iTunes will be terminated as it has lost its lustre in the age of music streaming services including the brand's own Apple Music.

A new Bloomberg report has revealed that Apple will be retiring the iTunes soon, almost two decades after its launch, replacing it with standalone Music, Television and Podcast apps.

First introduced in 2001 at the Macworld Expo and released two years later, iTunes quickly gathered steam to become users' preferred platform upon which they could listen to and watch multimedia as well as manage their Apple devices.

It looks like Apple's all-in-one media app is about to go away. Here's what we know about this.

According to Bloomberg, Apple will make the announcement at its annual developer conference in California on Monday. Since Apple is focused on improving their services under Tim Cook's leadership, the new apps it'll replace may definitely do its job well. MacRumors noted that on Facebook, it appears as though Apple may have moved the content from its iTunes page over to its Apple TV page.

This year, Apple is highlighting health care through its products via a revamped Health app for iPhones, a more comprehensive menstrual cycle tracker, a new Sleep Mode for mobile devices, and better support for hearing aids.

After the big night Khloé thanked Narbeh for inviting her and said she loved meeting his family. "I feel amazed", he wrote. In the other two, Kardashian, who wore a black long-sleeved dress with cutouts, gives Narbeh a kiss on the cheek.

Having standalone apps for its different streaming services could help Apple compete with the likes of Spotify and Netflix.

Apple is holding a press conference Monday at 10 AM Pacific and will reportedly be announcing iOS 13, macOS 10.15, watchOS 6, and tvOS 13.

The fate of the iTunes store for Microsoft Windows is still unclear though.

Apple will unveil a new generation of devices and software, as well as possible new hardware previews, with the new MacPro tipped as a likely candidate.

Apple has launched a new version of iTunes.
