ITunes drops apps, books and ringtones in latest update

ITunes drops apps, books and ringtones in latest update

That means iTunes no longer contains any options for syncing apps or ringtones to your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

On your Mac, launch the App Store app in your Applications folder.

Apple is finally taking action to trim that mammoth piece of software that iTunes has become over the years, pivoting it back to its original mission: an app for music.

You can still find iOS apps, ringtones, and books (PC only) that you've downloaded in your iTunes Media folder.

To download the new version, go to the "Updates" tab in the Mac App Store.

However, as of now, we are not certain if Apple's move to remove the App Store from the iTunes app will turn out good or bad or whether the change will encourage better user experience or not.

When you're ready, click the Update button next to the section about the iTunes 12.7 update.

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

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. What it adds in this update is the ability to sync with devices running iOS 11 and social music sharing for Apple Music subscribers. Following this, head to the update menu and you can see every detail there, as Apple has described how to install the iOS 11 beta here.

One of the much-awaited additions is the Files app, mostly because it will offer a revolutionary way for Apple users to organize all their files.

iOS 11's revamped control centre is its most eye-catching aesthetic change.
