A massive leak showing screenshots of the Dark Mode feature of iOS 13 was recently shown along with some other leaks about the highly awaited macOS 10.15. Based on the leaked screenshots, it appears that the Cupertino-based tech titan is replacing the iTunes with Apple Music App and it enables its TV app to allow access to TV+ services.

Tech analysts, experts, and enthusiasts are all looking forward on the possible announcement of macOS 10.15 during the keynote event of Apple at WWDC 2019. The Cupertino-based tech giant has promised the consumers a couple of years ago that it is going to offer something new. If the latest leaked screenshots are to be believed, it seems that Apple has indeed made massive changes on some of its apps including the new Apple Music App.

The screenshots reveal that macOS will bring new music and TV app. While both look scant in the screenshots, it is likely that the leaker would like to protect his identity. Both apps appear the same with a sidebar holding various lists and playlists. The Apple Music App has play buttons on top while the new TV app comes with sections that can be selected. This includes Movies, Kids, Watch Now, Library, and TV Shows.

The new TV app will allow access to the company's subscription-based TV+ service. The categorize content can be seen on the sidebar of the app where the main area will show significant details. Since the TV app is already present in iOS, the Cupertino-based tech titan is moving the service to macOS to make sure a seamless transition between various devices.

It was previously leaked that macOS 10.15 will bring the new Apple Music App that will go with iTunes. The new app is believed to feature contents from Apple Music including the local libraries of the user. Additionally, the app is expected to synch the contents between devices.

Connecting all the dots and crossing all the I's, it seems that the new Apple Music App is going to replace the iTunes in macOS. We will know more about macOS, the new music app as well as the new TV app on Monday when Apple finally reveals what it has been keeping under its sleeve.

For now, take this information with a grain of salt as these are leaks, which could be authentic or fake. These details are just some aspects of the macOS, hopefully, more details will be revealed by the Cupertino-based tech titan at the WWDC 2019.
