Now, when you click on the tab in the top left to switch between libraries, the "Apps" option is no longer there.

On your Mac, launch the App Store app in your Applications folder.

AR Kit will make its debut with iOS 11, which means augmented reality-based apps will soon start cropping up in the App Store, and Apple has also talked up improvements to its Photos and Messages apps, a revamped Control Centre and reworked lock screen notifications. The latest update adds changes to Apple Music and Podcast but the most important is the removal of the ability to download and organize apps for iPads, iPods and iPhones.

Although users won't be able to redownload previously purchased apps or ringtones on iTunes 12.7, users will still be able to sync those by plugging in their iOS device.

This includes a major update to the Siri voice assistant, which now supports "on-device learning" which Apple says will allow the service to become more aware of the user's habits and preferences.

As well as removing the app store from iTunes Apple has also removed the ringtones section, you can see the release notes below.

Downloading and installing iTunes 12.7 should only take a few minutes, but this will depend on the user's internet speed.

Apple has also made some changes on where other content in iTunes 12.7 are found. After that, download a profile to your iOS device and restart it.

Native translation is also coming to Siri in iOS 11, which will support English to Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish at launch. You'll need to re-download them.

One of the much-awaited additions is the Files app, mostly because it will offer a revolutionary way for Apple users to organize all their files.
