Music

The iTunes Music Store was launched by Steve Jobs at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2003[1], and by February 2010, had become the largest music vendor in the world[8]. In response to the decline in music sales and the rise of streaming services like Spotify, the Apple Music subscription service was launched on June 30, 2015[9], which as of April 2020, is available in 167 countries and regions[5].

On iOS and iPadOS devices, music is available for purchase on the iTunes Store app, and Apple Music is available through the Music app. On Windows and Mojave or older macOS systems the iTunes store and Apple Music are available through the iTunes client. On macOS Catalina, both are available through the native Music app. Apple Music apps are also available on watchOS, tvOS and Android as well as on the web.

Available Pokémon albums

Books

iBooks launched on April 3, 2010 in conjunction with the release of the iPad[10], and was renamed Apple Books in September 2018[11]. Apple Books is accessible in many countries around the world[7] via a dedicated app for iOS, iPadOS and macOS devices, and product listings are available on the Apple website.
