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

I'm still on iTunes 12.
