I'm using MacOS 10.14 Mojave on a MacBook Pro.
I'm trying to disable iTunes, mostly because it annoys me several times a day when I use my keyboard play/pause media button.
I have Spotify up and running and it usually gets these commands, but sometimes iTunes will pop out of nowhere (mostly when it's been a while without focusing the Spotify window).
I know in the past iTunesHelper process was responsible for this behavior and we could just disable it in the login items.
But today I have nothing in my login items, and no iTunesHelper process running.
The only suspect process I found was "com.apple.iTunesLibraryService", I tried to force kill it but it won't change anything.
Of course I tried to delete iTunes but it is "required by MacOS" -- seriously.
If I try to change authorisation on app to force uninstall anyway it tells me I don't have the required authorizations to do that -- as an administrator, right.
The only way to delete it seems to imply using some shady tricks that may or may not break my OS.
I'm seriously annoyed by the fact I can't own my laptop fully.
How can I uninstall or disable iTunes on macOS?
Side note: I will never connect any Apple device to my laptop, if that matters for iTunes sync or something.
