Apple has moved to discontinue both iBooks Author and iTunes U in the coming months. The functionality of both apps will instead be found in other apps. For example, iBooks Author users must prepare to transition their work to Pages. Apple has released a support document explaining how to create books in Pages.
Everything that's purchased from Apple using your Apple ID can be viewed in one consolidated list. To see apps, TV shows, subscriptions, books, and more, anyone with an Apple ID and an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch can head to Settings. Alternatively, purchases made with an Apple ID can be viewed from anywhere with a web browser.
With WWDC19 kicking off tomorrow, Apple has left several clues that major changes are afoot. The iTunes brand in particular could be history, as the company moves to separate the iTunes app into several distinct parts. The iTunes Instagram page has been wiped out, with a link directing visitors to the Apple TV account instead.
The iOS App Store can be used to find an app that was previously installed on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Viewing a list of past app purchases makes it possible to quickly and easily reinstall an app. A collection of apps associated with one Apple ID can even be searched for a specific app owned by the account.
