Apple Releases iTunes 12.4.1 With Bug Fixes

by

newitunes122logoApple today released a minor 12.4.1 update to iTunes, introducing several bug fixes to address issues with VoiceOver and other features.

iTunes 12.4.1 can be downloaded immediately from the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.

This update addresses a number of problems where iTunes doesn't work as expected with VoiceOver. It also restores the option to Reset Plays and fixes the following issues:

- Up Next may have unexpectedly played songs added together in the incorrect order.
- iTunes was prevented from crossfading between songs.

iTunes 12.4.1 comes just over two weeks after the release of iTunes 12.4, an update that introduced a revamped interface designed to be simpler, with the reintroduction of a sidebar for easier navigation and a redesigned media picker. It also featured safeguards to protect users from an issue that could cause music stored in iTunes to be deleted.

I don't like vanilla pudding.

That post has as much relevance to you as your post does to everyone else.

Does it bring back Control-Click to Shuffle and album or play a song/video? I used that all the time without realizing it and keep getting thrown off now.

I submitted feedback to Apple right after they released the last update.

Right on brother. Neither have I.

I still don't get it. On my 2013 rMBP, iTunes opens in one bounce, flawlessly jumps between 300GB of music, movies, and TV shows and syncs my devices every now and then.

I've never understood why it's so hated. Even the PC version from years ago on a 4200 rpm HDD ran well enough.

Can't they do delta updates on these things? 247 MB is overkill for a few bugfixes.

Heh, I was just thinking the same thing when I checked the download.

He didn't waste 10 seconds of his life. He brought joy to mine, knowing that I am not alone in the universe drifting from one MP3 to the next, iTuneless like a wayward asteroid. He brought meaning and purpose to my existence. I'm now at peace and not alone after all.
