With the release of iTunes 12.7 some time back, Apple ditched the App Store altogether on the desktop. This meant that you can no longer use iTunes to search for and download apps or ringtones if you wanted to. But this change (apparently) did not bode well with certain consumers and businesses who rely on iTunes to deploy apps. This pushed Apple to release a new version of iTunes, which sits at version 12.6.3. It brings back the App Store, and once installed, you won't be prompted to install newer versions of iTunes, if they become available in the future.
You can download iTunes 12.6.3 for both Windows and Mac. And for Microsoft's desktop operating system, it's available in both 32 and 64-bit flavors. All you have to do is download the installer file and install it like any usual software on your computer. The direct download links for iTunes 12.6.3 are embedded below.

If you rely heavily on iTunes to deploy apps, games or ringtones, then this quiet release from Apple is something you should look into. But the big downside of this release is that once you've installed it, you will not receive further updates to iTunes. Therefore you will miss out on new features which Apple will introduce down the line. Thankfully though, you have the choice of returning back to the usual iTunes update channel, if you're willing to sacrifice the App Store completely. You can find more details about it in the source link at the foot of this post.
Apple is not known to roll back changes that it has made to its software and hardware. But today's release is a mighty big compromise. While you do get the App Store back, but in a version of iTunes which is essentially out of date. Therefore don't expect the app hub to return in a future version of Apple's music management software.
Be vary of this fact for the time to come.
