It's no longer a place for Apple users to get apps, instead, they would have to rely on the iOS App Store. And when you launch the app, you'll see your resting heart rate and recovery heart rate, which tells you how quickly your heart rate drops after a workout.

The Apple Pay service is also getting an upgrade, allowing users to make peer-to-peer (P2P) payments through a new iMessage app, with authentication carried out using Touch ID biometrics. The new update doesn't solve all of the design problems with iTunes, which is still used for videos, audiobooks and podcasts, but it puts some of the focus back on its original goal: listening to music.

You can still find iOS apps, ringtones, and books (PC only) that you've downloaded in your iTunes Media folder.

However, as of now, we are not certain if Apple's move to remove the App Store from the iTunes app will turn out good or bad or whether the change will encourage better user experience or not.

Other changes to version 12.7 of iTunes includes a new "Internet Radio" section in the sidebar, easier ringtone management, and Apple's iTunes U content being integrated into Podcasts. When you swipe up, you'll no longer see the half-screen block with a handful of connectivity and utility options. Once the update is available, users will simply have to click the Update button on the right side of the page and the download and installation process will begin. The US-based tech giant has removed the iOS App Store from the iTunes. After that, download a profile to your iOS device and restart it.

Chief among iOS 11's features is a much-needed update to Siri.
