Apple has announced it will be bringing an end to iTunes later this year.

The groundbreaking platform was launched in 2001 and revolutionised the way people bought and listened to music.

But with technology changing at a rapid pace, Apple has decided there is no longer any need for iTunes.

Instead, the company will be focusing its energies on three entertainment apps: Apple Music, Apple Podcasts and Apple TV. Users will continue to have access to their content libraries through these services.

Will iTunes be missed, or is it simply time to move on?

John Caddell and Larissa Nolan discussed this in our music slot.

They also previewed this week's gigs from Metallica, The Cure, Snow Patrol and Michael Buble, and the new Michael Hutchence documentary, Mystify.
