Apple in its latest iTunes version 12.7 has removed App Store; users were able to enjoy easy access to App Store from their Mac or Windows PC in iTunes. This used to give them comfort of managing apps from the bigger screen of their laptops or computers. However, Apple has come up with 12.6.3 as a welcome option, and therefore, users can get App Store back into iTunes to sync apps or ringtones to iPhone or iPad.
You can install this iTunes 12.6.3 even as you have already installed version 12.6.3 of iTunes on your computer. Apple doesn’t give any technical support to iTunes 12.6.3 as you won’t get any update for this version in future. There is one consolation – this iTunes 12.6.3 supports iOS 11 running in iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X.
