iTunes Radio could be moved into standalone app for iOS 8
Apple is testing the idea of moving iTunes Radio into a dedicated app for iOS 8, sources say. At the moment, iTunes Radio is just another option in iOS 7's Music app. This may be hurting <a href="http://www.electronista.com/articles/14/03/10/close.to.capturing.second.but.still.far.behind.rei gning.champ.pandora/">its adoption</a>, since third-party rivals like Pandora and Spotify are separate apps and hence more visible. As a <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2014/03/12/ios-8-apple-considers-itunes-radio-changes-to-tackle-growing-spotify-pandora-competition/">distinct</a> entity, iTunes Radio would likely still come pre-installed with iOS 8.<br /><br />Apple has split off functions from its iPod/Music app several times in the past. In iOS 5, videos gained their own app, and in iOS 6 the same happened to podcasts. iTunes U has not only been broken off, but expanded to become a complete course-taking system.
