Apple erases the iOS App Store from iTunes

Adjust Comment Print

There are quite a few changes in this new iTunes release, the most notable one is the removal of the app store from iTunes.

This new change effectively means that users can now download apps or ringtones only from their iOS devices.

With the new iTunes, Apple has re-emphasized its primary use as a music app rather than a not-so-comprehensive counterpart to Google Play Store. If you want to buy an app for your iPhone or iPad, you'll have to do it via the App Store on the device itself. However, Apple hasn't taken away any movies, TV shows, audiobooks, or podcasts from the music app.

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.
