As soon as upgrading their Macs to macOS Catalina, many Mac users were surprised to see that after all these years Apple has finally killed off the iTunes application and has divided its features among various new and old apps. For example, we now get separate apps for Music, Podcasts and TV while the iOS device management is now done through Finder.
One thing that has been noticeably missing for some is the iTunes Store feature. Since there is no iTunes app, users found themselves puzzled about how they can access the iTunes Store and purchase songs, while getting access to purchased music and other features.
If you’re one of these users, then you don’t need to worry as it is quite easy to access the iTunes Store option, that too through the new Music application. In this article you will learn how you can easily access iTunes Store on macOS Catalina.
