Hello Cristóbal,

First, if you are using iTunes 12.7 or later, App Store access was removed.  

Second, if, like me, you prefer to write App reviews on a desktop and submit 
them via iTunes, you can install iTunes 12.6.3.  This version does have access 
to both Apps and the App Store.

Below my signature, you will find the text to my original post on this subject.

Good Luck,


Apple has quietly released iTunes 12.6.3, which reintroduces the ability to 
download App Store apps and ringtones from within the iTunes desktop software. 

Apple is making this version of iTunes available because "certain business 
partners might still need to use iTunes to install apps", but the download is 
basically available to anyone looking to reinstate the functionality that was 
removed in iTunes 12.7. 

If you've already installed a newer version of iTunes, you can download this 
version of iTunes on your Mac, PC 32-bit or PC 64-bit and run the installer.
After installation is complete, you can continue to deploy apps with iTunes.
You won't be prompted to download new versions of iTunes after you install this 
Installation packages for Mac and PC (32-bit and 64-bit) are available for 
download on the support page. After the installation, most users will need to 
rebuild their iTunes Library. To do this, hold down the Option key when the app 
launches and in the dialog window that appears choose "Create Library...". Give 
the new library a name that's different to your existing library, and then 
migrate over your albums using the Add to Library...
option under the Files menu. 

Apple released iTunes 12.7 in September and said the new version was designed 
to focus solely on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks, which was 
the reason behind the removal of the built-in App Store. Following the change, 
apps and ringtones could only be downloaded on an iOS device. 

This special "business edition" of iTunes includes compatibility with iOS 11, 
iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. It's not clear how long Apple will offer 
iTunes 12.6.3, and the company does not provide technical support for this 
version, but for those who want the functionality it could be a useful 
makeweight until Apple comes up with an alternative solution.
