Apple Removes App Store From iTunes

If you have an iOS app, ringtone, or book that's no longer available, you can move that to your iOS device while plugged in to a computer with a USB cable, as long as it's still on your computer. The option to sync ringtones and apps to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch has been removed.

Apple announced last month that iTunes U content can now be found in the iTunes' podcasts section. You can get iTunes 12.7 from the Mac App Store. The one-stop-shop model was convenient, we'll admit, but if there was one criticism is that iTunes always felt like a very bloated piece of software. You'll still have access to music, movies, TV shows, audiobooks, and podcasts.

In iOS 11, users will be able to find out what their friends are listening to from within the Music app. Now we have a video showing OS 10.3.3 vs iOS 11 GM.

While the new AR features showcased by Apple during the keynote event are not likely to make their way to older iPhones, iOS 11 will still bring a number of exciting new features that should make your iOS experience better.

When you launch iTunes 12.7 you'll see a disclaimer about the changes.

The upgraded macOS High Sierra will launch the company's first-party apps' new improvements. The latest study claims that the crashing app rate on iOS devices has jumped to 54% in the second quarter - up from 50% in Q1.

Downloading and installing iTunes 12.7 should only take a few minutes, but this will depend on the user's internet speed. Ditching the App Store means that apps can only be downloaded using an iOS device, but as significant as this is, it is not the only notable change in the software.

A new tab, called "Today" will show apps and stories about developers on a daily basis.
