Wondering how to uninstall iTunes? We’ve got a couple of options for you!

Do you know how to turn every day into the great day and start feeling better about yourself immediately? How to make this feeling last for days? It is easy, you just have to start making changes to your life. We are not talking about changing your habits overnight, but we would like to suggest you to start making small alterations to your lifestyle.

First of all you have to start indulging yourself (be careful here, don’t overdo it! :) ). Our advice is to choose those pleasures that will not affect your figure and mood (yes, unfortunately, chocolate brownies can be very mean, even though they are so good at seducing us!) We would suggest you to get a new haircut or having a movie night with friends. Even listening to the latest album of your favourite artist in FLAC format (why? FLAC vs MP3) would lift your mood up within seconds! It has been proven scientifically that music is one of the best remedies for both soul and body, so why not benefit from it? Make listening to good music your new habit and you will feel much more content day by day.

Another good way to feel better at once is to get rid of unnecessary things. But sometimes it can be so hard when it comes to decluttering your own territory. If you are too scared of all that stuff that has piled up on your sofas and different surfaces of your room, you can start from sorting your music out. Prepare playlists for all possible situations, sort your songs out by genre or anything else. This will make your life much more convenient and you will feel like you have accomplished something (and we guarantee that you will thank yourself afterwards!)

Even though you have done everything like we recommended, you still cannot enjoy it since you are struggling with iTunes? Have you been thinking of uninstalling iTunes for a while now? Were you curious about the consequences it will bring; what will happen to your files and how will you manage them? Or you simply did not know what you should replace it with and were looking for a good alternative?

We will help you to find the best way in the broad world of choices of how to uninstall iTunes. We will also talk about an alternative which will not require you to unistall iTunes.

How to uninstall iTunes with ease: few quick steps

Go to the Applications folder, then to Utilities and choose “Terminal” --> Now go to Applications directory --> Type “sudo rm –rf iTunes.app/” --> Enter your Administrator password.

Now that you have removed iTunes from your Mac’s iOS you may want to check whether it was really deleted. If after searching everywhere you are still unable to find it, try installing a music player or any other app and see what happens. If your files open in the new app – you have deleted iTunes. If iTunes icon appears...well, you might have to go through all the process one more time.

A different answer to how to uninstall iTunes:

If you choose this way, you chose the dark side. In some way you become the hacker: you break the “rules” by changing the settings that let you delete iTunes from your Mac.

So how to unistall iTunes? In order to do that, you will have to right click on your iTunes file. Then select “Get info” and find the padlock button in the right corner of the window. Go to your App Permission Settings (you will have to enter your Administrator password) and choose “Sharing and Permissions” section. Here you will have to change the privileges to “Read & Write” – now you are free to delete iTunes and nothing can stop you!

Another way to uninstall iTunes: use a program

If the idea of going through your laptop’s settings freaks you out a bit, you may always use a little help. In this case your helper will be a program – for example, CopyTrans Drivers Installer. You just have to download this free program and install it. Once launched you will have to choose which programs you would like to have uninstalled (you may also choose QuickTime or Apple Software Update) and click “Uninstall”. Then the program will remove the chosen programs from your Mac.


If you follow one of the suggested routes, we guarantee that none of your media files will be harmed. You may delete only the iTunes music files (duplicates).
