iTunes is a media player, media library, Internet radio broadcaster, mobile device management utility, and the client app for the iTunes Store.
With so many features, iTunes often goes wrong for different reasons. The simplest way to get iTunes back on track is to update it to the latest version. Sometimes for your new device or new system, you may also need to update your iTunes.

In 2019, Apple released iTunes 12.10.0, which is the latest version by now, to support updating of iPhones, iPads, and the seventh-generation iPod touch to iOS/iPad 13.
For Mac with Catalina or Mojave system, iTunes had disappeared and it had been replaced by Finder, but its media library can be accessed via Apple Music, Apple TV, Apple Books, and Apple Podcast app. The newest version has some of the same features as iTunes 12.7 released in 2017. For instance, the built-in App store, the synchronization of ringtones, and the management of the local applications are removed from iTunes, for focus on the management of media files.
