Following today’s release of the macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 software update, Apple quietly released a minor update to iTunes for Mac computers that’s solely focused on bug fixes.
The Windows version did not receive an update today.
“This update includes minor app and performance improvements,” according to Apple’s release notes. Apple’s website offers no further information regarding iTunes 12.7.2. The update is available over the air using the Software Update mechanism (you can find it underneath the Updates tab in Mac App Store).
The previous iTunes (version 12.7.1) came with just minor improvements and no outward-facing feature enhancements.
iTunes now focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts and audiobooks because the ability to download and purchase iOS apps and ringtones has been removed from the app since October’s release of iTunes 12.7.
For certain companies, including Apple’s carrier partners that might still need to use iTunes to install apps, Apple is providing iTunes 12.6.3 which brings back a built-in iOS App Store storefront and the ability to download ringtones from iTunes Store.
