ITunes logo 2010b

On September 1, 2010, Apple launched iTunes 10. At the same time, they introduced a new logo and dropped the compact disc from their logo. The reasoning behind this, was that CD sales are falling and that iTunes was expected to surpass CD sales in the United States.[1] Finally, Apple reduced its compatibility to "the two leopards". The logo received poor reception from the designing community. The music note changed from blue to black.


ITunes 11 Logo

On November 29, 2012, Apple launched iTunes 11. Also they updated the logo, slightly changing the music note from black to gray, completely redesigning the interface as well.



On June 2, 2014, OS X 10.10 Yosemite was announced at WWDC, introducing this redesigned logo to match the iOS Music app.

ITunes logo

On June 8, 2015, OS X 10.11 El Capitan was announced at WWDC, and they updated the 2014 logo once more to launch in time with the new Apple Music service on July 1st.

At WWDC 2019, Apple announced they would discontinue iTunes from macOS Catalina onwards. iTunes' function would instead be served by three separate apps: Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple TV. Later in 2023, iTunes for Windows is set to be semi-replaced by the three separate apps: Apple Music, Apple TV, and Apple Devices, available for both Windows 10 and Windows 11 users.

The program is, however, still available for Microsoft Windows after Windows 10 and older macOS versions, due to Apple Podcasts and Apple Audiobooks services still remains in iTunes. However, if user installed both iTunes, Apple Music, Apple TV and Apple Devices on same Windows devices, all functions on iTunes except Podcasts and Audiobooks will be unavailable.
