Apple allows redownloading of apps in iTunes but at a cost

Apple released iTunes 12.7 shortly after the release of iOS 11 and with the new update Apple removed the ability to install apps previously downloaded.

This usually isn’t an issue unless you have downloaded apps that have previously been removed from the AppStore. Apple has quietly reintroduced this feature for their business partners, however this is also available for everyday users as well.


One drawback is that the cost of reintroducing this feature means Apple will no longer offer support to this version of iTunes. Apple states

“If you’ve already installed a newer version of iTunes, you can download this version of iTunes on your Mac, PC 32-bit or PC 64-bit* and run the installer. After installation is complete, you can continue to deploy apps with iTunes.” “You won’t be prompted to download new versions of iTunes after you install this version. Learn how to update to the latest version of iTunes when you’re ready to upgrade manually.”

To download iTunes 12.6.3 simply head over to our iOS Centre and choose your device.
