ITunes 12.7 for Mac removes iOS app store

Apple iOS 11

Apple iOS 11

If you haven't heard, Apple yesterday unveiled iPhone X, just one week before the iOS 11 release.

For more tips on programming for iOS 11, see Apple's documentation.

Of course, for some reason, iOS 11 GM might not be for everyone, despite being a stable build. See, the Golden Master build represents the first ever release of a brand new software, therefore it might actually be infested with a bunch of performance related issues which are fixed over a course of time.

"If you previously used iTunes to sync apps or ringtones on your iOS device, use the new App Store or Sounds Settings on iOS to redownload them without your Mac", Apple tells users in the update prompt, according to The Verge.

The new features coming with iOS 11 include phone-to-phone Apple Pay and a new control centre.

iOS 11 will start rolling out to iPhones and iPads on 19 September. You should not need to restart your Mac, unless you also made a decision to click the Update All button, which installs any other OS updates available. This means that if somebody messages to ask where you are, for example, Siri is now clever enough to serve up your location.

Apple today pushed out an update to its iTunes Program for Windows 10 users.

The iPhone is steadily becoming a dominating player in the world of photography and improving their camera is another way to do so. Portrait mode pictures using the iPhone 7 Plus (and now the iPhone 8 Plus) will use optical image stabilisation as standard in iOS 11, True Tone flash and HDR, all of which should lead to significant improvements in portraiture. The new OS can also detect arrhythmias. Unlike previous iterations, the new App Store for iOS 11 devices will be more editorial than before and focuses on having users discover new and popular apps.

In addition to sounding better, Siri is also now able to translate languages and you'll now be able to type requests to Siri when you can't speak.

Once that's done, you just open the beta website with Safari on your iPhone or iPad and follow the directions.
