newitunes122logoAlongside the release of macOS Sierra 10.12.6, which came after a two month beta testing period, Apple has introduced a new version of iTunes, iTunes 12.6.2.

iTunes 12.6.2 is a minor update, with Apple's release notes saying only that it introduces minor app and performance improvements.

Today's iTunes update can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for free using the Software Update function.

iTunes 12.6.2 follows iTunes 12.6.1, another minor update that was released back in May.

"minor app and performance improvements."

I see so much hate for iTunes yet I don't have any issues with it? It's been mostly trouble free and fast.

I don't know what I'm doing differently as I use it quite heavily.

I just want to see an announcement:

"Apple releases iTunes X.x., a major update that fixes millions of bugs, annoyances, flakey behaviours, and isn't a pile of total crap and a nagging advertising platform to try and get you to pay £15 a month for music you've already bought (a.k.a. "Apple Music") and just bloody works. Again".
The hatred for apple amongst so many of you who continue to use apple products is truly pathetic. Only a fool would continue to use a product they hate. These days there are many alternatives, so to see such a rant as this speaks more for the **** of the user than apple.

In all the years, I have never had a major issue to iTunes. I love it. I use it daily and I use many of it's features. No product is perfect, but iTunes is simply fabulous. If you have problems, I'd strongly suggest the fault is with you, one way or the other, and you should move on to another platform instead of bitching irrationally here!

I wish either in iTunes or iOS they would reenable downloading of purchased apps. Such a hassle for those of us who have no internet on our home computers. Miss that feature of iOS 8.
Get used to it. Anything inconvenient for Apple, just seems to get deleted, unless of course it appeals to the dominant social media crazed teen culture.
