MacVoices #17192: Kirk McElhearn on the Changes in iTunes 12.7

New versions of macOS and iOS always bring changes, and this one is no exception. iTunes 12.7 is out in anticipation of High Sierra, and brings with it significant changes. iTunes expert Kirk McElhearn talks us through what you can and no longer can do with iTunes. Ringtones and app syncing are out, an Apple Music social networking option is in, and backing up your iDevices has changed. Find out what Kirk likes, what he doesn’t, and why bandwidth is even more important than ever.

This edition of MacVoices is supported by MacVoices Magazine, our free magazine on Flipboard that helps you do more with your Apple tech.
