It is not a rumor - it has been officially announced by Apple that iTunes is going away. It is going to be replaced by Apple Music, Apple TV and Apple Podcasts in the next release of macOS named Catalina. In practice you'll just start using the Apple Music program for listening to your old ripped CDs instead of using iTunes - so this is definitely not a ...

It's a known bug since the release of macOS 10.14.5. The blank window that shows up when you try to add an item to your library is actually supposed to contain new terms of service that you have to agree to, but it's bugged on macOS and just displays an empty page instead.

CDA files are not song files, it's just a shortcut. It doesn't contain any song information, so you can't convert it to other formats.

In the past I was able to use iOS devices as USB drives. You appear to be mistaken. This has never been possible without third-party software and/or jailbreaking. It was possible to use older iPods in "disk mode" as storage devices. However, this feature was never available for the iPod Touch, nor for any version of the iPhone. Some iOS applications ...

It’s in Files as of today.

I used to have this issue in the past before, and for me the cause was faulty lightning cables. Make sure you're using genuine cables from Apple and not third-party ones. This might not be the same solution for you but try it out and I hope it helps!

now that there are rumors that iTunes will be discontinued, is this a dead-end? No, it's not a dead-end. There will ALWAYS be a way to play your own music files ripped from CD. If not in an app called "iTunes", then in Apple Music, or a 3rd party application such as Winamp. Continue ripping your CDs and collecting (and backing up!) the .mp3 or .m4a files. ...

FaceID and TouchID are stored locally only on the device in a Security Enclave and never sent across the network.

Astonishingly the error had nothing to do with the "song not being available in my country or region," but simply was because the song had not yet loaded into the iCloud Music Library. I clicked on File, Library, Update iCloud Music Library, and after about 5 minutes, the song was available on my other devices.
