Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference officially kicks off on Monday in San Jose, California.

Other exciting announcements expected an increasing autonomy of the Apple Watch, which now depends on iPhones to work, revamps to the Health and Reminders apps and a unified app strategy across devices. Music, TV programs, and podcasts will have its own dedicated new app from Apple. By 2013, more than 25 billion songs were sold and another 40 billion apps.

The US website Rolling Stone said the move would align Apple's strategy as its iPhones and iPads already have separate apps and iTunes only exists for Macs and MacBooks.

Among the rumored additions: a systemwide dark mode for iOS and a more independent Apple Watch.

Fresh evidence pertaining to the impending death of iTunes has emerged ahead of WWDC 2019. Without iTunes, customers can manage their Apple gadgets through the Music app. The latter sounds like it's going to be particularly exciting, with a slew of new features, complications and apps pegged for the Apple Watch. The event usually goes for 2 hours but can stretch a little depending on what Apple plans to announce this year. We have converted the times for you so you know when to tune in. As in previous years, the event will be about software updates, as Apple will introduce upgrades for all its operating systems, including iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

The fate of the iTunes store for Microsoft Windows is still unclear though. Apple also recommends Mac users to update to macOS Sierra 10.12 or later for streaming the event. Apple has quietly scrubbed the official Facebook and Instagram pages for iTunes clean and is asking users to follow Apple TV accounts.
