Apple Updates Desktop iTunes, Removes iOS App Store

A big update that removes the iOS App Store from the desktop version of iTunes has been released by Apple. You'll now have to manage your applications directly from an iOS device. Until now, it's been possible to browse for apps and install software to your device via the desktop client.

Version 12.7 on Mac and PC gets rid of the iOS App Store. Apple says it now has a more specific focus on "music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks."

This update also comes with social music sharing for Apple Music and support for syncing with iOS 11 devices.
