In the update prompt, Apple mentions, "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". Apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch are now exclusively available in the new App Store for iOS.

Apple announced last month that iTunes U content can now be found in the iTunes' podcasts section. Considering most people probably do all their app management in the App Store on their devices anyway, we can't imagine this making much of a difference in people's lives, other than giving you one less reason to download iTunes.

On the Mac, users will have to open the App Store from the Applications folder or from the App Dock.

On the occasion of its tenth anniversary, Apple launched the new version of its celebrated music app, the iTunes 12.7.

Click on the Update button at the top of the app. Apple also released iTunes 12.7 and there's a glaring change - the App Store is gone.

The installation will take a few minutes. Once it finishes, there will be no need to restart the Mac computer and users can start using iTunes 12.7 immediately. Apple claims that the new processor is the most powerful and smartest chip it has ever produced.

Aside from the common redesigns applied on the stock apps' icons and Notification Center, the iOS 11 will also introduce several features for the first time. Seemingly, they're now going back to those earlier roots by removing apps from the latest version of iTunes.

The new wallpapers include pictures of flowers, stars, planets, nature and much more, they are very colorful due to which they look flawless on the latest smartphone display.
