Well, the company is removing the built-in App Store from its iTunes app for Mac and Windows. Apple also released iTunes 12.7 and there's a glaring change - the App Store is gone.

Although this beta version of iOS 11 should be almost flawless with most of the bugs detected and ironed out, there's still a chance that Apple will add or eliminate certain things and you'll need to download an update on the release day.

You can find out more details about the new iTunes for Mac over at Apple's website, the software is now available to download. There are a lot of features just waiting to be tried out and app updates are rolling out en mass to take advantage of Apple's new software for mobile.

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.

Apple's iTunes 12.7 now focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts and audiobooks. And other changes include, Internet Radio has been added to Music section whereas iTunes U collections have been moved to the Podcasts section. Apple has chose to remove the built-in App Store from iTunes 12.7 as part of its effort to streamline its online services on desktop computers.
