Also, the App Store, which for years has been awkwardly integrated into iTunes on desktop, is no longer there.

Later this month Apple will be releasing its iOS 11 software update, which is bringing in some big changes to the iPhone operating system.

Cutting app backups and ringtone support from iTunes may be a pain for some users, but it wasn't an arbitrary decision.

iTunes 12.7 is a free download. Apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch are now exclusively available in the new App Store for iOS. Apple has also eliminated separate categories for Internet Radio and iTunes U, streamlining the interface to place iTunes U collections in Podcasts and listing Internet Radio stations in the music library's sidebar. The Windows version removes the Books section, too.

"The new App Store makes it easy to get, update, and redownload apps-all without a Mac or PC", said Apple. Once the registration is complete, open the beta website with Safari browser on your iPhone or iPad and follow the directions.

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

Downloading and installing iTunes 12.7 should only take a few minutes, but this will depend on the user's internet speed. Once the update is available, users will simply have to click the Update button on the right side of the page and the download and installation process will begin.
