I need ability to manage my apps but not the app Store. Can OS 10.13 be installed without installing iTunes 12.7. Where can I download OS 10.13 that does not include iTunes?. I will be installing on a Mac Book Pro - Mid 2014.
You can install install iTunes 12.6.3 on top of / over iTunes 12.7 for all OS that support iTunes 12.7 and both are compatible with iOS 11.
If you've already been using 12.7 you may have luck importing your 12.7 lib to a clean 12.6.3 Library, as outlined on MacRumors, but I had no joy.
I ended up restoring a backup of my Library [just the catalog not all the tunes] from a time before i updated to 12.7.
