iTunes 12.7 does not provide the Apps option

Have you recently updated to iTunes 12.7?

It’s good that iTunes 12.7 still provides the File Sharing function:

However, iTunes 12.7 no longer provides the Apps option, and you can no longer use iTunes to sync apps or ringtones to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

If you would like to downgrade to iTunes 12.6.3 on your PC for now, please try these steps:

1. Backup your data.

2. Uninstall iTunes from your PC.

3. Find the file named “iTunes Library.itl” in the C:\Users\username\My Music\iTunes folder, and delete it.

4. Download iTunes 12.6.3 from the Internet and install it.

Iphone 6s Plus iCMTGIS PRO syncing problem

“I purchased the ICMTPROGIS Version 1.0.3 for my Iphone 6s for use with an Arrow Gold RTK receiver. I set it up and everything is running fine except, I cannot figure out how to upload .SHP files or basemaps to the ICMTPROGIS program. None of the instructions for using Itunes or Icloud to import files work. I can export data files that I have collected via email fine, but I cannot figure out where these files are stored on Icloud. I have set up Icloud drive to store my .SHP files on, but these do not show up on the ICMTPROGIS app when I go to job, import shapefiles.”

Our apps will let you store job data files in iCloud, but they don’t not support the iCloud Drive folders.

In iCMTGIS PRO, under Setup – iCloud, if you have marked any of the check boxes, then those files will be stored in iCloud.

To use iTunes to transfer the files to your PC, you will need to first unmark the check boxes so the files will go back into the local documents folder on your device.

How to transfer data files between an iOS app and a desk-top computer

This is a refresher on using iTunes to manage files created by an app for the iOS devices. Following are the steps you can take to move files between the app and your desk-top computer.

1. Run iTunes on your desk-top computer and connect your iOS device to it using the USB cable that came with your iOS device.
2. When connection has been established, you will see the device name, such as “iPhone” on a button near the upper-right corner of the iTunes screen. Click on that button.
3. Click on the “Apps” button at the top.
4. Scroll down all the way to the File Sharing Section.
5. Click on the name of your app, such as Deed Calls & Stakeout.
6. You should see your data files (such as the *.dcf files) listed. After you select one or more files, you can click the “Save To” button to save them to any folder on your computer. You can then attach these files to an email you are sending out from your computer.
7. To move a file from a folder on your computer to the app, you would click on the “Add” button then select the desired file from the folder in which it is stored. Remember that there are multiple files associated with Shapefiles. Be sure to add all of these files to the app’s document folder.
8. If your app has the capability to email data files, the recipient will need to download the attached file to their desk-top computer before they can move it into the app’s document folder.
