How to Uninstall iTunes from a Mac
Every Mac user is familiar with iTunes. It’s a great application for acquiring all your favorite music and movies, apps and electronic books. Some users, though, may prefer a different application, or not be interested in acquiring these kinds of items. However, removing iTunes from Mac systems is not as easy as using it. If you try to drag the iTunes icon to the Trash, you will be told: “iTunes can’t be modified or deleted because it’s required by OS X”.
Fortunately, that’s not quite true: iTunes is not actually required by Mac OS X and can be deleted without any unforeseen consequences. The removal process is a bit tricky if you try to do it manually. Lucky for you, there is a program that can quickly and safely delete iTunes or any other app, as well as tidy up your Mac – Movavi Mac Cleaner! All you need to do is download the program and follow our short guide below.
Step 1: Install Mac Cleaner
Open the downloaded file and follow the installation instructions.
Step 2: Examine the State of Your Mac
Mac Cleaner is first and foremost a remover of unnecessary files. So, as you launch the program, it will automatically scan your Mac to find all the hidden junk files. Then you can simply click the Start Cleaning button to get rid of all those unwanted files, reclaim disk space, and make your Mac run faster. If you don’t need this, just wait till the scanning process is over and move on to the next step.
Step 3: Remove iTunes
Open the Uninstaller menu on the left of the program window and wait for the program to find all the applications on your Mac. As iTunes is pre-installed by Apple, you’ll need to go to the OS X Apps menu. Mac Cleaner will scan your Mac once again and display the total number of standard OS X applications on your computer. Now you need to locate iTunes in the list of apps – to make it easier, click on the field above the list and choose Sort by Name. Finally, check the white box next to the iTunes icon and click Remove.
That’s all there is to it! Now you know how to uninstall iTunes from a MacBook, iMac or any other Apple computer. With Movavi Mac Cleaner, you’ll have no problems securely and completely deleting applications from your Mac.
