Having a one-stop shop for all your needs is a great idea because in theory it sounds extremely convenient. However when you start filling up that shop with too many things, things start to get a bit messy, which was the case with Apple’s iTunes app in which it was meant to handle iOS devices, music, videos, ringtones, ebooks, and more.
This is why in the latest version of iTunes (version 12.7), Apple removed a ton of features like the app store and basically refocused iTunes into a music app. However for those who are lamenting the loss of access to certain features, not to worry because Apple has you covered with a quiet release of iTunes 12.6.3 which was noticed by the folks on Reddit.
Based on the version number, it is clearly not the “latest” version, but it does offer users access to the App Store and it will also support Apple’s latest devices, like the new iPhones and devices running on iOS 11. According to Apple, they have positioned this release as being necessary for businesses who deploy apps internally, but given that it is available for download by anyone, we’re not sure it really matters.
In any case this version of iTunes will be available for PC (32-bit and 64-bit supported) and Mac users, so click here if you’re a Mac user, or here if you’re a 32-bit PC user, or here for 64-bit PC users.
