Apple will be discontinuing its multimedia album format iTunes LP starting at the end of this month, according to a report from Metro this morning. Earlier on Tuesday morning, Metro found a leaked Apple document that spelled doom for the bundled extras.

Within the email, Apple revealed it "will no longer accept new submissions of iTunes LPS after March 2018".

However, The Verge confirmed that existing iTunes LPs will not be deprecated at the end of March 2018, the site said these iTunes LPs will remain available and previous or new iTunes LP purchases can be downloaded any time from the store.

Apple this week sent an email to those in the music business confirming that, as of 1 April, it will no longer be accepting iTunes LP submissions.

The LP format never achieved great popularity but the fact that Apple plans to ditch iTunes LPs in 2018 potentially hints at the possibility that Apple may stop selling iTunes music downloads shortly. While the format has been around for almost a decade, only a fraction of albums available on iTunes are LPs.

Citing the rise of the firm's Apple Music streaming service, music industry insiders claim the move could lead to the demise of iTunes.

What are Apple iTunes LPs? Labels could take advantage of the format by included things like liner notes, graphics, photos and links to video for albums encoded that way. "Customers who have previously purchased an album containing an iTunes LP will still be able to download the additional content using iTunes Match", it says.

The anonymous source who leaked the email to Metro told the publication: "It's clear that streaming is the future".

The iTunes LP news comes just days after reports surfaced about Apple Music rival Spotify preparing to go public.

The news ignites former rumours Apple is considering moving towards a monthly subscription fee, rather than the sale of individual songs.
