If you've had a chance to watch the 2019 WWDC gathering, you'd know Apple has finally let go of iTunes. Rather of handling the digital media content in just one program, Apple has broken down iTunes into three different pieces-Apple Music, Apple TV, and Apple Podcasts. With your all-time favorite iTunes user now leaving, it's time to take a look at what Apple has done to the user in its 18-year existence. The following chart shows exactly that.
iPhone isn't the first iTunes-supported cell phone-If you think the iPhone was the first and only iTunes-supported product, you're wrong as iTunes originally supported other manufacturers 'phones. On June 28, 2005 (about 13 years ago), when Apple added support for cell phone connections in iTunes, the first two phones to get this support were actually from Motorola. These phones were Motorola ROKR E1 and Motorola SLVR. Apple only added support for the iPhone 3 G to the iTunes application after three years, on 10 July 2008.
Tunes launched a fourth-generation windows update-Because Apple wanted to encourage people to purchase its products, the first release of the iTunes app was only supported on the Macs. Around that point in time there was no Windows version available and so Windows users just couldn't use this fantastic music management app on their computers. And it didn't take too long for the software to be released on the Windows platform. Apple launched a Windows-compatible version of their iTunes app on 16 October 2003. Windows users have been able to update and use the software on their devices from this day onwards. The software was initially running on both Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
