Apple is ending its long-running partnership with AOL

Back when AOL hadn’t faded from relevence entirely, the company formed a prtnership with Apple that allowed users to log into iTunes using their AOL accounts. However, that long-running agreement is finally coming to an end which means users who still used this feature, which i doubt is very many at all, will need to start using an Apple ID or else they will lose access to the App Store, the iBookstore, and iTunes. 

The long-standing partnership that allowed AOL members to login to iTunes with their AOL credentials will come to an end at the end of next month, meaning those consumers still taking advantage of that ability will need to migrate to an Apple ID or lose access to iTunes, the App Store, and the iBookstore. Apple detailed the migration procedure in a recent support document, saying that those who refuse to make the change before March 31 will lose access to any content purchased from the iTunes Store, App Store, or iBookstore under their AOL username. Unlinking the accounts will not affect any AOL services. To convert their AOL login into an Apple ID, user simply need to sign in to iTunes on a Mac or PC using their AOL username. An on-screen guide will walk through the process.
