Visit Here for Solutions to Remove iTools Correctly in Windows
You can learn how to efficiently remove iTools and other relevant information by reading this page.
When iTunes is coming as the Apple’s official way of all iOS management, iTools is an option that some iPhone, iPad and iPod users believe in keeping instead. Its features include data migrate, backup and restore, iTools Airplayer, battery master, rintone maker, icon rearranger, file management and image tool. When installing this software, three other programs will be installed along:
- Apple Application Support (32-bit/64-bit)
This software is required by iTunes/iTools. If you get the error message “Apple Application Support was not found”, you will need to fix your iTunes installation.
- Apple Mobile Device Support
This is needed for synchronization between an iPod or iPhone and iTunes/iTools.
So there is actually no stand-alone package. But when you remove iTools or iTunes, the above two will still be there, and you will need to uninstall them manually. This page provides complete tutorials for you to correctly uninstall the target as well as the bundled programs. Just read on to check the specific steps you might not know.
