iTunes 12.7 update

On September 12, 2017, Apple released iTunes 12.7 update for both Windows and Mac, and shocked up once again as iTunes was totally re-designed with built-in App Store and ringtone management revamped. Like updating old iTunes versions as before, you can upgrade to iTunes 12.7 from the Mac App Store through the Software Update mechanism on Mac or run Apple Software Update on Windows. Windows users can also download latest version from Apple official website and simply install to overwrite the old version. For all users, iTunes 12.7 update is free of charge.

Now let’s see how Apple describe the iTunes 12.7 update, actually, there is nothing difference on update information between Windows and Mac version.

iTunes 12.7 for Mac/Windows

The new iTunes focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks. It adds support for syncing iOS 11 devices and includes new features for –

  • Apple Music. Now discover music with friends. Members can create profiles and follow each other to see music they are listening to and any playlists they’ve shared.
  • Podcasts. iTunes U collections are now part of the Apple Podcasts family. Search and explore free educational content produced by leading schools, universities, museums, and cultural institutions all in one place.

If you previously used iTunes to sync apps or ringtones to your iOS device, use the new App Store or Sounds Settings on iOS to redownload them without your Mac/Windows.
