newitunes122logoApple today released iTunes 12.3, making the software compatible with the newly released iOS 9 update and the upcoming OS X El Capitan update, set to be released to the public on September 30.

iTunes 12.3 can be downloaded immediately via the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.

Along with introducing support for iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 El Capitan, the iTunes 12.3 update also includes support for the Apple's two-factor authentication system, fixes several bugs, and adds some feature improvements.

This update to iTunes adds support for iOS 9 and is designed for OS X El Capitan. It also:

- Improves Apple Music accessibility with VoiceOver
- Resolves a problem that prevented reordering of songs within Up Next
- Fixes a problem where some radio stations did not appear within Recently Played
- Addresses an issue where songs you loved on iOS did not appear love on iTunes
- Supports two-factor authentication to secure your Apple ID

This update also includes improvements to overall stability and performance.

iTunes 12.3 is the third major update to iTunes 12, and it comes nearly three months after the launch of iTunes 12.2, which introduced support for the new Apple Music service. iTunes 12.3 also comes a month after iTunes 12.2.2, a minor update that introduced Apple Music bug fixes.

iTunes needs a redo. It should be focused only on music. Create separate apps for movies, apps, and books.

Resume playback finally implemented? What I meant is that you are listening a very long playlist of thousands of songs, quit iTunes, reboot the Mac or shut down the Mac. The next time that you open iTunes it starts from song number one again, but you want it to resume from the last song played (say, song number 1456 or whatever). For me that is the most essential feature missing in iTunes, and it was available in SoundJam MP back in 2001, from where iTunes was developed.
