Is Apple about to stop selling iTunes downloads?

Not for the first time, the music industry is about to be well and truly shaken up by Apple.

Just three months ago, the tech giant denied rumours that it was going to stop selling downloads from the iTunes store 'within 2 or 3 years'. However, reports are now coming in that it has launched its Apple Music streaming service, without a complementary iTunes download component, in South Korea, suggesting that a worldwide rollout of streaming-only may be imminent.

So why is this a huge deal for both the music industry and the music fan?
