Apple Releases iTunes 12.2.1 With iTunes Match Fix

newitunes122logoApple today released iTunes 12.2.1, a minor update that introduces some much needed bug fixes for iTunes Match and other features introduced with Apple Music. Apple Music was first released two weeks ago, but included several major bugs with iTunes Match that caused the deletion of entire music libraries and other issues, such as an inability to sign up for Apple Music for former iTunes Match subscribers.

The iTunes 12.2.1 update is available immediately from the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.
- Fixes an issue for iTunes Match where iTunes incorrectly changed some songs from Matched to Apple Music.
- Provides a way to correct a library problem affecting former iTunes Match subscribers.
- Includes minor bug fixes and improvements for Beats 1.
Today's update fixes the iTunes Match issue that caused iTunes to incorrectly label songs from Matched to Apple Music and it will allow several former iTunes Match subscribers who were unable to sign up for Apple Music to get the service for the first time. In addition, it also includes bug fixes for the Beats 1 radio station, which is built into Apple Music.

iTunes 12.2, first released two weeks ago alongside iOS 8.4 and OS X 10.10.4 Yosemite, is the second major update to iTunes 12 and the version of iTunes that includes support for the Apple Music service. Apple Music lets iTunes listeners get access to on-demand music, create playlists, and more, plus it includes the Beats 1 radio station and Apple Music Connect, Apple's artist-centric social network.

You can use normal font all the time.

Man it's so funny how years ago, the whole iPod + iTunes situation was considered a match in heaven. Now... iTunes is a bloated piece of crap that tries to do everything. I'm really hoping Apple will soon decentralize the whole thing, make Music separate from sync'ing, etc.

Accidentally clicked on iTunes whilst it was updating. Got to experience Apple's attention to detail! ;)

Back up your libraries. What did we learn from the launch of this monstrosity?

Radio layout still messed up. Nothing aligns. Great attention to detail :/

Right-clicking and choosing "Get Album Art" also doesn't work.

In all the years I've used iTunes, that function has never worked for me.

iTunes automatically backs up your library (under Previous iTunes Libraries) but doesn't hurt to create your own


Backing up your iTunes library isn't enough. You need to back up the actual music files. Some folks (myself included) have had their actual files modified or removed from their HD.

I see many people complaining about iTunes's UI. I don't see it. iTunes 11 and 12 has always worked for me, and I like the general UI. You can hide the things that you don't want to see and there are tabs in each category. The speed hasn't been an issue, even though I'm on a base level 2012 MBA.

iTunes really has become a bear to use. It's amazing that after all these years Apple hasn't come out with a better UI for it.
