However, Apple hasn't taken away any movies, TV shows, audiobooks, or podcasts from the music app. It was a redundant, inefficient feature that added confusion to an already bloated piece of software.

Also, redownloading ringtones can now be handled on-device, with iOS 11.

What's surprising though is that Apple has removed the App Store from the iTunes desktop app, which might be a welcome change as in it will reduce the bloat in the app. It no longer has an App Store for your iPhone or iPad.

The app now appears in the App Store, although users are unable to download it until September 12. And the new App Store makes it easy to get, update, and redownload apps - all without a Mac or PC.

It will have the new option for searching apps.

Apple is finally taking action to trim that mammoth piece of software that iTunes has become over the years, pivoting it back to its original mission: an app for music.

Other changes include a previously announced move for iTunes U content, which is now in the Podcast section. Click Continue to have your Mac close iTunes and continue with the upgrade.

When opening iTunes 12.7 for the first time, users will be greeted by an update prompt from Apple.

A new tab, called "Today" will show apps and stories about developers on a daily basis. The mobile operating system will stop supporting 32-bit apps, which could indicate that older Apple iPhones will not be compatible with iOS 11, and will have to utilize the iOS 9 or iOS 10.

iTunes's increasingly cluttered interface is partially a symptom of becoming the single app for storing your music library and syncing apps to your phone.

If you purchased ringtones through iTunes, Apple says that you can download them through your iPhone using the App Store app, or through Settings Sounds Ringtone Store.
