Apple is testing a new web interface for Podcasts

Apple Reportedly Bringing Apple Music, Apple TV Apps to the Mac

In fact, the episode links use a podcast.apple.com URL instead of itunes.apple.com, which is further proof of the iTunes rumors. According to the same source, iTunes will still be present in the next mac firmware update for synchronization purposes with older Apple devices.

Apple will build the new apps on Marzipan, its technology that allows iOS applications to port to macOS without additional coding.

Show landing pages, for example, now prominently display information such as number of episodes, podcast category, producer name, and a dynamically updated star rating.

Thoughts about the new Apple Podcasts web interface?

Apple already announced it was working on a standalone Apple TV app for Mac, and Rambo has suggested there will be standalone apps for Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple Books coming as well. Apple is reportedly set to break up the iTunes software into separate Music, TV, and Podcasts apps in the next version of macOS.

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

My biggest issue with the iTunes store though is needing to use Apple's annoying iTunes software that seems to serve little goal other than try and force me to use it and get me to sync with other Apple devices I don't own. Put simply, breaking up iTunes will present users with a much more intuitive way to access and enjoy their favorite content. It would make a lot of sense to split it up, given that iTunes has become increasingly bloated since it launched in 2001.
