Apple Releases iTunes 12.7

Follow all the latest news from Apple's iPhone event here!

Apple's iTunes program updated for Windows 10 users today to Version 12.7 and while it added some changes to Apple Music and Podcasts, it also completely removed the ability to download and organize apps for iPods, iPads, and iPhones.

ITunes has always been derided for being bloated, and this latest change seems to be Apple's attempt to get things back under control.

Changes to the app include the moving of iTunes U content to the Podcasts section, and Internet Radio to your music library sidebar. In making the upgrade, users are greeted by a message that tells them: "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 still find iOS apps, ringtones, and books (PC only) that you've downloaded in your iTunes Media folder. It is debatable whether it is a right step by the company to remove the App Store from the iTunes app as more options are usually preferred by us as users.

The new iTunes focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks.

Don't worry, this doesn't mean that the App Store is going away, just that it will no longer live in iTunes.
