Tech giant Apple has just updated its iTunes Remote app. The Cupertino based company in a statement said the new version features Dark Mode. Besides, it comes with enhanced support for the new Music and TV apps included with macOS Catalina. The iTunes Remote app had stopped working on the latest version of macOS since it was discontinued in Catalina. The new version also fixes some bugs and improves the overall performance of the app. It also supports Dark Mode in iOS 13 and later. After the release of the new iOS update and macOS 10.15.2 update, the app can be used to control playback in the Music and TV apps in macOS Catalina.
The iTunes Remote app is available for free. Anyone can download the app from the iOS App Store and avail the services. The app helps control music libraries and other content on the Mac or PC with the iPhone or Pad. The app allows connecting iPhone or iPad directly to Apple Music, iTunes or the Apple TV app on Mac or PC. Apple said iTunes Remote allows smooth control of Apple Music, iTunes and the Apple TV app from anywhere in the home. Since November 2018, it is the first time when the company has released an update for iTunes Remote app. The Dark Mode update will be useful for people who don’t like the bright glare, especially during the nighttime.
Earlier in June, Apple had announced to phase out iTunes with its three modern standalone music services — Music, TV, and Podcasts. The move was taken to match the standards of the growing music streaming industry where more players are joining the fray. The tech giant for long has been pushing users toward its music subscription service. According to the company’s claim, Apple Music will allow users to discover new music with over 50 million songs and music videos. Apple had launched iTunes in 2001. Its music store was released by the company two years later.
