Apple releases iTunes 12.7, removes desktop iOS App Store
Apple has pushed iTunes 12.7 for Mac and PC, with support for iOS 11. The update has numerous changes, but the notable highlight here is the exclusion of desktop iOS App Store from iTunes. This takes iTunes a step closer to being a standalone app for music.
All iOS apps for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch are now exclusive to App Store for iOS, meaning you won’t be able to tinker with them on iTunes now. Well, that’s because Apple says the all-new App Store for iOS makes it easy to get, update and re-download apps — all without a Mac or PC.
Not only for App Store, iTunes 12.7 has other changes and refinements, too. Full iTunes 12.7 changelog is after the fold.
