You Don’t Need iTunes To Listen To Apple Podcasts Anymore

14 April 2019

The new Music, Podcasts, and TV apps will be made using Marzipan, Apple's new technology created to facilitate the porting of iPad apps to the Mac without too many code changes.

9to5Mac first reported that Apple will bring a dedicated Podcasts app to the Mac with the next major version of macOS.

Not only is Apple focusing on its services this year, it seems like the company is also planning on separating their main apps - Music, Podcasts, TV and Books - from iTunes.

The new apps are said to be Marzipan applications, similar to the Apple News app on the Mac, which will share an overarching design and codebase with their iOS counterparts on the iPhone and iPad. Separating podcasts and keep its branding combined below one label will be a more enjoyable experience for users to avoid iTunes altogether. We may expect to hear more about the iTunes later in June when Apple holds its WWDC conference for developers. People started speculating Apple would launch its other apps individually on MacOS and Troughton-Smith believes this is the case. In addition, Apple is clearly pursuing its strategy of aligning the code of its apps as an integral part of macOS. As always, if you have any thoughts, feel free to sound them off in the comments section below!
