While Apple apparently informed industry insiders of its decision two weeks ago, Metro shared the details of its letter titled "The End of iTunes LPs" today.
Apple began offering its own interpretation of the LP in 2009 on the iTunes Store.

Apple just confirmed that it will stop accepting iTunes LP submissions as of March, ending the feature's somewhat brief life. An iTunes Store link to "See All Albums with iTunes LP" doesn't appear to work when tapped within the store, but it can be accessed by clicking above.

iTunes LPs have never been a large part of Apple's music business, but if you are a fan, any iTunes LPs you have purchased aren't going anywhere.
Apple's attention has rightfully shifted to its subscription music service Apple Music which includes similar elements to iTunes LP. But its existence has only been highlighted now through a report by the United Kingdom newspaper The Metro.
Mr Mulligan asserts there's still money to be made from selling music downloads, and claims that at this stage its "unlikely" Apple will discontinue the service altogether.
