Apple Releases iTunes 11.0.4 with Improved Syncing and iTunes Store Sign-in Fix

Following last month’s iTunes update that included a redesigned Mini-Player and improved songs view, Apple has today released iTunes 11.0.4.

The update fixes a bug that caused iTunes to crash when users switched between wired and wireless syncing and addresses an ongoing issue that caused some users to have to log in to the iTunes store multiple times.

This version of iTunes comes with several new features and improvements, including:

New MiniPlayer. MiniPlayer now includes a beautiful new view that showcases your album artwork. In addition, a progress bar is now built right into MiniPlayer.

Improved Songs View. You can now enjoy your album artwork while in Songs view.

Multi-Disc Albums. Albums with multiple discs now appear as a single album.

This update fixes a problem that may cause iTunes to quit if you switch between wired and wireless syncing and addresses an issue that may require you to log into the iTunes Store repeatedly.
The update weighs in at 187.52MB on the Mac, and is available through the Mac App Store, Software Update, and direct from Apple's Software Download Page. A Windows 64 version is also available.

Hey MacRumors,

this is basically the EXACT SAME post as for version 11.0.3.

All the update info is from the last version.

Hey kal101,

you must have missed this important bit:
This update fixes a problem that may cause iTunes to quit if you switch between wired and wireless syncing and addresses an issue that may require you to log into the iTunes Store repeatedly.

Some us had to deal with very annoying bug; so this is not the "EXACT SAME post".

I don't think I'll be updating to this anytime soon, I'm still on iTunes 10.

I don't grasp this new functionality regarding the improved Songs View. Could someone explain?


Took me forever to figure this out, but here it is:

Go to Music > Songs.

You'll see all your music with no artwork.

Press Command + J:

[ •*] Show Artwork
[ •*] Always show

software updates for 10.8.4 and this itunes update could've all been bundled with 10.9... just saying.


10.9 didn't arrive until October. Just saying.

----------

I have (had? now that the update is out) this problem where when I have multiple App updates in iTunes, it would update the first app, but forget to update the remaining 2+ apps.


That bug didn't get fixed until 2015.

I'm still on iTunes 12.

Well some of us had to log into the Store repeatedly until kingdom come whenever we wanted to buy anything! I for one am thrilled with this update!


So the only thing NEW in this update is the "store login fix"?
Because everything else mentioned was already in the last version, those are not new things.

No more constantly asking for my password!! I am so happy :D

Also, love the new mini-player that was introduced in the last update.

Wish they would bring back the ability to scroll the volume regardless if the window (or miniplayer) was active or not. I miss that feature. Instead they have a handle to scrub through the song. That's preferred over scrolling the volume? :-/


I can scroll the volume using the trackpad if I hover over the volume bar, and I can also scrub through the song if I hover over that. Even if the window is not active.
