iTunes 12.7.1 Download For Windows And Mac Is Out, Here’s What Is New
Apple has released iTunes 12.7.1 download for both Windows and Mac users. This release comes about a month and a half after the controversial iTunes 12.7 (more on why it was controversial later) release which dropped support for App Store.
It has been quite an eventful day for Apple. It started off with the company getting mostly positive reviews on its upcoming flagship iPhone X smartphone from critics.
This was then followed up by various software updates, starting from final versions of iOS 11.1, watchOS 4.1, tvOS 11.1 and macOS 10.13.1 High Sierra, all of which have brought 100+ new and redesigned emoji characters among other tweaks here and there, and more importantly a fix for KRACK WPA2 WiFi vulnerability.
This has all now followed on with the release of iTunes 12.7.1 on both Windows and Mac platforms. Apple says that is mainly a minor bug fix release which focuses on bringing app and performance improvements to the overall experience of using iTunes on Macs and PCs.
So yes, this won’t bring the App Store back which Apple removed in iTunes 12.7, much to the displeasure of many business users. If you want to use that particular feature, Apple has a special iTunes 12.6.3 version available for download now which should cater for those special needs in enterprise, business and education sectors.
The latest iTunes version 12.7.1 can be downloaded from apple.com/itunes/download. Alternatively, if you already have iTunes installed, you can grab it by checking for the update in Mac App Store, or in Apple Software Update Utility if you are on Windows.
