So I went on the App section on my Mac's iTunes, and clicked download... asked for my AppleID, and I typed it in. But then I get red text above it saying This action could not be completed. Try again. Help?

OSX 10.13 iTunes 12.6.2 Yes, I know it's not the latest iTunes, but the new one doesn't have apps.

  • Try upgrading to 12.6.3. It was just released as a manual download - it won't appear as an update in the App Store. This update still retains the built in Apps in iTunes. This is a special release of iTunes for those that still depend on the App functionality in iTunes. It's targeted at business workflows, however. – vcsjones Oct 9 '17 at 15:26
  • Nice find - DL'ing it now, 12.7 was another in a line of bad decisions:/ – Tetsujin Oct 9 '17 at 15:28
  • If you already upgraded to 12.7 you might want to consider grabbing your iTunes Library back from a backup. I couldn't persuade mine to import the 12.7 lib at all [even though MacRumours said you could] – Tetsujin Oct 9 '17 at 16:56

Apple has released iTunes 12.6.3 with the App Store which can be installed alongside the latest version of iTunes.

Apple released this version specially for Volume Purchase Programs users who may need to use iTunes to install apps. However, you can get the App Store back if you install this.

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.

Also, this "special" version of iTunes includes compatibility with iOS 11, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X and supports both Windows and Mac.
