Apple Releases iTunes 12.7 Without a Built-in App Store

Apple's Software
September 13, 2017

Apple has just released iTunes 12.7 with support for syncing iOS 11 devices. But by far the biggest news is what’s missing.

The new software doesn’t feature a built-in App Store or Ringtones section. The only way to download an app is directly from an iOS device.

Music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audio books are the only media available through the software.

Here are the release notes:

The new iTunes focuses on music, movies, TV shows, and audiobooks. It adds support for syncing iOS 11 devices and includes new features for–

Apple Music. Now discover music with friends. Members can create profiles and follow each other to see music they are listening to and any playlists they’ve shared.

Podcasts. iTunes U collections are now part of the Apple Podcasts family. Search and explore free educational content produced by leading schools, universities, museums, and cultural institutions all in one place.

If you previously used iTunes to sync apps or ringtones on your iOS device, use the new App Store or Sounds Settings on iOS to redownload them without your Mac.

You can download the software through the Mac App Store.
