Nearly two decades after its launch, Apple is ready to say farewell to iTunes. According to Bloomberg, the iconic multimedia software will be rendered superfluous by a trio of new apps set to be unveiled on Monday at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California.

Bloomberg had this to say about Apple's strategy:

iTunes has been the way Apple users listen to music, watch movies and TV shows, hear podcasts, and manage their devices for almost two decades. This year, Apple is finally ready to move into a new era. The company is launching a trio of new apps for the Mac – Music, TV, and Podcasts – to replace iTunes. That matches Apple's media app strategy on iPhones and iPads. Without iTunes, customers can manage their Apple gadgets through the Music app.
