In May 2007, Apple announced the launch of iTunes U via the iTunes Store, which delivers university lectures from top U.S. colleges. With iTunes version 12.7 in August 2017, iTunes U collections became a part of the Podcasts app.

On 10 June 2020, Apple formally announced that iTunes U will be discontinued from the end of 2021
