Alongside macOS Sierra 10.12.3, iOS 10.2.1, watchOS 3.1.3, and tvOS 10.1.1, Apple has released an update to its iTunes software for Mac and Windows, introducing iTunes 12.5.5.
Apple does not provide much information on what's included in the iTunes 12.5.5 update. According to the company's release notes, iTunes 12.5.5 introduces "minor app and performance improvements."
iTunes 12.5.5 can be downloaded immediately from the Software Update feature in the Mac App Store. The Windows version can be downloaded using the "Check for Update" feature built into the iTunes help menu.
iTunes 12.5.5 follows iTunes 12.5.4, which was released in December and introduced support for the TV app and the Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro models.

I'm including a screenshot of our from somewhere else in the web for all to remember and examine. Very smooth and clean interface that exposed a lot of functionality (IMO).
This interface entices me even today.
If you look for my thread on here 'iTunes Genius dead?' under the Apple Services section on page 2, I share an email followup where the issue is acknowledged and that Apple is 'investigating' to fix 'permanently'.
Based on my library assessment, Genius seems to work for tracks released up to about July-August 2015. From what I have heard from an advisor at Apple, the standard time for genius to be available is around 90 days after a song's release date.
My theory is that when Apple started using the heart symbol (summer 2015) for songs users liked, that messed up the Genius algorithm which relies on not just playlists that users creates, but also star ratings and other factors. I also think that Apple Music has been a factor in the interruption of the Genius service.
Anyway, I am optimistic they fix this.
