Apple's iTunes update removes the iOS app store

Apple's iTunes update removes the iOS app store”

If the iTunes app is open, your Mac will tell you that the installation can not proceed until you close iTunes. With the new built-in application, people can access and arrange their saved data across their iPhone, iPad, iCloud Storage, Mac computers, and even those that are stored in third-party services such as Box and Dropbox.

During its keynote event in Cupertino, Apple revealed that the iOS 11 update will be available for download for iPhone and iPad owners around the world starting September 19.

"The new iTunes focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks", Apple said on its support page.

This means that in order to buy an iOS app, you must do it on the iOS device itself. Once users update to iTunes 12.7, the only way to download/redownload apps is directly through the App Store on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. But with the latest update, Apple has streamlined the app somewhat, making it far less cluttered.

The removal of the App Store comes with the update to version 12.7 of the software, which Apple launched in the wake of yesterday's big iPhone X announcement.

Interestingly, iTunes v12.7 update also brings in the ability to sync iOS 11 devices, as well as the ability to discover content with friends on Apple Music much easily.

Although the beta is not the complete version of the upgrade and new features could be added before now and general release, it does give a good idea of what it's like to live with iOS 11 on a daily basis.

OS 11 will download onto your device, and once it's ready, you can start the install process.
