  • In this latest upgrade as well, the iOS App Store has been removed from the desktop iTunes version. In short, you can no longer access the App Store directly from your iTunes as you used to do with the older versions, and you will also find that syncing your apps to any other iDevice is no longer possible with the version 12.7.2.
  • App management is thus only doable through each iDevice that you own instead of accessing it through iTunes on your Mac or PC.
