    thanks - the reddit thread above is for 12.6.4 and is for an earlier version of the Mojave beta.

    Perhaps there will be a 12.6.6 update for Mojave - that said I was mostly interested in using iTunes 12.6.x.x to update apps on multiple iOS devices - but I have a feeling it just puts a placeholder on the iOS device and causes it to download a new version of the app OTA on each device - this could be tested by updating from mac without connecting to wifi.

    I also think that iTunes 12.9 and going forward may have other implications for voice memos, iOS sync with iOS12 etc

    Anyway thanks for the info

    If the iOS device is connected, with USB in my case, the apps are going from the computer to the iDevice.

    Based on reports from the other thread, SIP must be disabled.
    If you don't want to disable SIP, you can try to extract iTunes.app from Install iTunes.pkg with Pacifist to a different location than the Applications folder.

    I don’t see the problem with SIP. You can enable it again after you finish with your modifications.

    I’m running iTunes 12.6.5.3 on an “orphaned” MacBook still running El Capitan -- OS X 10.11.6.

    As of this AM….. it still downloaded several iOS app updates (the MS office apps) and used these downloads to update 2 different iPhones running iOS 11.4 while plugged in via USB.

    I can confirm that app updates no longer seem to be working via iTunes 12.6.5.3 on Mojave. The download appears to completes successfully, but then fails some form of final validation with error code 8228. Then you retry the operation, you receive a 416 error.
    Disappointingly, it looks like apps in iTunes has finally reached the end of the line, even though Apple are still offering v12.6.5.3 for download on their website (page last updated 17th January 2019): https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT208079

    I just fired up a MacBook with Mavericks and iTunes 12.6.2 and it downloads apps and updates just fine. 12.6.5 on High Sierra, which had been a supported configuration, gives the 8228 error.
    Edit: 12.6.5 on High Sierra is now updating apps successfully again.

    Monday, the apps failed to update, but new downloads were working. Today, updates and downloads work very well on 10.14.3 with iTunes 12.6.5.3.
