Tool modifying iTunes with lead to laptop (7)


I believe the answer is:


'tool' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'modifying itunes with lead to laptop' is the wordplay.
'modifying' indicates an anagram (I've seen 'modified' mean this).
'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'lead to' says to take the initial letters.
The first letter of 'laptop' is 'l'.
'itunes' is an anagram of 'utensi'.

(Other definitions for utensil that I've seen before include "Mandolin, perhaps" , "Implement for practical use" , "Tool for practical use" , "Let us in (anag) -- implement" , "Can opener, for example" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
