Alongside Wednesday’s release of macOS 10.13.2 High Sierra, Apple also released an update to iTunes, version 12.7.2. The update includes the ever-popular “minor app and performance improvements.”

The release notes accompanying the update don’t provide many details about the minor update. The app continues Apple’s refocusing of iTunes as a media content manager, dropping the iOS App Store in favor of a focus on music, movies and television episodes, podcasts, and other media.

The new iTunes focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks. Apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch are now exclusively available in the new App Store for iOS. And the new App Store makes it easy to get, update, and redownload apps—all without a Mac or PC.

You’ll find these changes in the new iTunes:

Manage media, files, and other content on your iOS device

Connect your iOS device to your computer with a USB cable to sync music, movies, TV shows, and audiobooks using iTunes. You can also back up your device using iTunes.

If you want to copy files between your computer and apps on your iOS device, use File Sharing.

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

If you have an iOS app, ringtone, or book that’s no longer available for redownload, you can move that content to your iOS device while plugged in to a computer with a USB cable.

The iTunes 12.7.2 update can be downloaded for free via the “Update” tab in the Mac App Store.
