"The new iTunes focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks", Apple said on its support page. The updated software will enhance the user interface and additional edition tools will be introduced to the Photos app.

"And", says Ian Fogg, senior director, mobile & telecom, IHS Markit, "because of the tight integration of software and hardware, AR developers will know their AR experiences will run smoothly on all supported iOS devices".

The consumer technology giant made an update this week to its popular iTunes media player and online store that removes the ability for users to download apps through the service. If the iTunes app is open, your Mac will tell you that the installation can not proceed until you close iTunes. And a lighter iTunes desktop app could make it easier for Apple to bring it in the Windows Store, as announced.

iTunes has typically been Apple's go-to store for pretty much everything. The option to sync ringtones and apps to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch has been removed.

A few other changes in the iTunes update include shifting iTunes U to the Podcasts section and moving internet radio stations to the music library sidebar. If the built-in ZIP extractor doesn't work, you can install a third-party application from Google Play Store.

All the current Apple product users will be able to download iOS 11 on September 19, exactly 10 days before the new Apple phones will be available in India.

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

The update to iTunes also adds the Friends feature first seen in the iOS 11 beta.

Don't worry, this doesn't mean that the App Store is going away, just that it will no longer live in iTunes.
