Last week Netflix announced that they have removed the ability to purchases new subscriptions via iTunes In App Purchases. A statement on the Netflix website states “iTunes billing for Netflix is not available to new or rejoining Netflix customers. If you are currently billed by iTunes, you can continue to use iTunes billing until your account is cancelled.”
Many are unaware the shortly after Apple removed the App Store from iTunes it released a special version of iTunes that retained the App Store, primarily for “certain business partners”. However, if you are currently making use of this special version of iTunes you may want to hold off upgrading to Mojave as it is currently incompatible with the most recent macOS release. There is no information, at present, as to if or when this version of iTunes will be made compatible.
Apple has donated $1M to the Kerala flood relief fund, Kerala is a coastal province in the South West of India which has been hit by severe floods during this season's monsoon rains. Donations can also be made via the link on the iTunes store homepage.
