Apple’s latest iTunes update with 12.7 a few weeks back has disappointed its users by removing an important feature i.e. iPhone apps download. However, some rigorous users have uncovered that Apple has privately released iTunes 12.6.3 with the support of iOS 11, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 plus and iPhone X.

Users can still take benefits of iTunes 12.6.3 if they had upgraded their iTunes to 12.7 version. However, if a user upgrades his/her iTunes to the 12.6.3 version, he/she will not be able to update to future versions. Moreover, it should be noted that 12.6.3 users will not get technical support from Apple. Therefore, it can be considered as a temporary fix to the problem.

But, users of 12.6.3 iTunes version should not worry if you want to upgrade to 12.7 version later then you can do it manually. It is estimated that the next iTunes version will be 12.7.x, which will boost only music, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks.

Apple has explained the reason for removal of app support in iTunes, it says since 2007, the de facto software used to regulate iOS devices which were a cause for dissatisfaction to several users who needed the app store functionality. Therefore, the company shows its vision to support enterprises and businesses who still require iOS app management support in iTunes. So, iTunes 12.6.3 is made available for macOS and windows machines.

For those users who have already updated their iTunes to 12.7 version and want to get iTunes 12.6.3 version will have to make a new iTunes library due to the unsuitability of current iTunes library with the older version.

However, it is more convenient to go with the flow and stick to iTunes 12.7 if a user doesn’t miss the lack of iOS app management because by this choice your apps will keep getting major-minor updates which will not be the case with app-friendly version.
