They are SO late to the game. Cell phone watches were around long before the Apple watch. After Jobs death, the vision of the company disappeared and they're just slowing down their journey to irrelevance. Requiring iTunes to manage the device and then stopping windows iTunes development and locking new versions of iTunes to newer macs really screwed them over. That's why I left the iPhone platform (that and no headphone jack).

Without iTunes, customers can manage their Apple gadgets through the Music app.

That's the really important bit. I wanted to know what'll happen to my purchases. I had to scroll through way too much fluff to get to that.

These digital services are always a bad idea for this reason: they'll use DRM to lock you out of "your" content and deprecate you as quickly as possible. It's a great opportunity for them to sell the same thing to you again later!

I very rarely used iTunes. I haven't used it in years. I can't remember the last time I used iTunes.

I wonder how they will offer Apple Music on non-Mac PCs. Currently, the only way to use Apple Music on Windows is through iTunes, as it has no web player.

A web player would probably be the best option, tbh.
