Retirement of Itunes on Apple devices

How will MediaMonkey work with the coming retirement of Itunes?
Itunes music functions on Apple products will soon move to Apple music.
I have an Iphone 6s, an ipad air and a PC laptop with Windows 10.

That's something that will depend on what Apple does. For now the announcement was related to iTunes on the new MAC OS being replaced with Apple Music, etc. iTunes is required for syncing to Apple devices and iTunes remain available.

iTunes isn't dead. It will depend on Apple on how they'll implement iOS sync for Windows. MediaMonkey and others will likely keep relying on this closed proprietary system.

All MM requires is the drivers; IF iTunes were to disappear no one is going to come and snatch those from your hard drive. MM will continue to work just fine.
