Apple Releases iTunes 12.0.1 Alongside OS X Yosemite

Alongside OS X Yosemite, Apple today released iTunes 12.0.1, a revamped version of iTunes that’s been designed with OS X Yosemite in mind. iTunes 12.0.1 can be downloaded from the Mac App Store and is available for both Mavericks and OS X Yosemite.

iTunes 12 offers an elegant new design that incorporates translucency to improve depth. It also has a streamlined toolbar that aims to give users more room to experience content, and it melds the iTunes Store with the Library, making it easier to navigate between personal collections and what’s available in the store.

There are dedicated icons for music, movies, and TV shows, and Recently Added albums, movies, and TV shows are displayed at the top of the library for easy access.

iTunes 12 also includes support for several iOS 8/Yosemite features, including Family Sharing, and it brings improved playlist editing as well.

Apple has also released Security Update 2014-005 for OS X Mavericks.

Well, all my playlists are gone.

That's cool, iTunes 12. That's cool.




Playlist is still there on the top by My Music now under Playlists they did not remove that.

Well looks like Apple finally killed off the sidebar for good now. Good luck finding anything.




It is not so hard to find the sidebar just go under playlists.



People need to stop complaining before even trying to play around with some of the new features. Seriously, is everyone who has any Apple hardware 12 years old?

Is it just me or is there something seriously wrong here considering that one of these operating systems is just five years old, made by Apple and still considered to be the best OS X by many, while the other is 13 years old, made by Microsoft, and has been declared dead even by them?

A previous itunes restore will not work, so if u plan to restore the decent previous version (11.4), do not install this one. The previous version will freeze on launch, even after freshly installed form dmg.

Also wtf is with the red icon? These colors are picked by a 2yo old?

Seriously, rich arrogant people need to stop complaining about the idea of supporting older hardware. One of the great things about Apple hardware is that it can last for decades. It gets passed down through the family, sold on eBay and just keeps on working. Legacy support is a good thing. Apple has the many billions of dollars kicking around and by providing legacy support they gain more customers who buy their content and may buy new hardware in the future. You need to be so short sighted and stop complaining about other people's older computers. Alternatively, buy everyone brand new hardware.

Huh?


The joke is that they keep changing the design of iTunes every year.

Got an annoying issue where app updates in iTunes (12.0.1) don't show the update text - they are just blank!

NOW I'M FURIOUS!

iTunes 12 runs on Windows XP 32 bit systems but requires OS X 10.7 or greater!

No one wants to run 10.7 because it was a lemon like Windows Vista and Mt Lion fixed most of Lions bugs but I can't run 10.8 or higher on my MacPro! (Is 10.7 even available today? Where can it be downloaded?)

Excuse me but 10.5/10.6 was released waaaaay after Windows XP! I smell a class action lawsuit.

Apple must release iTunes 12 for Snow Leopard systems or pull iTunes for Windows XP 32 bit and require 64 bit Windows 7 or higher.

I literally can't remember the last time Apple added a "feature" to iTunes that made me say "oh that's great!", at least not sarcastically. Every time I open iTunes lately (which thanks to iCloud and iTunes Match is less and less often), I get a vague Android-like feeling of "what I am supposed to do here?" and "how do I just make it do what I want?"

iTunes has gone from drop-dead easy to use and understand, to a bloated design-by committee cluster fork of the highest order.
