Apple plans to close iTunes store in 2019

With the growth of services higher than ever streaming, Apple has announced its intention to close the famous store of iTunes in 2019.

The emblematic multimedia content store was created in 2003 and represented a true revolution in the consumption of digital content. In the beginning, he had to compete against other ‘big boys’ like Napster.

At that time, Apple’s founder, Steve Jobs, insisted on record companies so that iTunes music was marketed based on the song, at $ 0.99 a unit, instead of selling entire albums.

Since then, Apple’s digital store has been influencing substantially the habits of consumers around the world, who were accustomed to download the music acquired in iTunes and then upload it to their iPods. By February 2013 the company had sold 25 billion songs

Apparently, the implementation will include a migration of a user’s iTunes downloads to an Apple Music account. This would become a three-month trial, similar to the current three-month trial version offered by Apple to new Apple Music users, in which a user’s playlists and downloads would be completely imported.

In addition, any unauthorized music would not be available on Apple Music, but users will still be able to listen to those songs without a license until they become part of Apple’s streaming service.

A revolution of digital music

This online shopping platform, which was the springboard for the digital music revolution at the beginning of the 21st century, competing with giants such as Napster, was a catalyst in the growth of the iPod, with customers all over the world, buying tracks from the store and then downloading them to your computer, and uploading them to your iPod.

But with the advent of platforms dedicated to streaming services, such as YouTube, SoundCloud and Spotify, the practice of downloading multimedia content was falling into disuse in favour of direct and instant online consumption.
