Downgrade to iTunes 12.6.3 if you want app support back

iTunes 12.7 consolidated Apple's narrative for what the iTunes desktop program is really supposed to be. Instead of a free for all syncing program between a Mac or PC and iOS device, it laser focuses on only the parts that have to do with entertainment and multimedia, like music, videos, and podcasts.
