Apple Releases iTunes 12.7.4 With New Music Video Features for Apple Music

by

Apple today released an updated version of iTunes, iTunes 12.7.4, which introduces a new music video experience for Apple Music. A music video section lets users discover new and popular music videos in the Browse section of Apple Music, and there's an option to create Apple Music playlists for videos.


Apple's full release notes for iTunes 12.7.4 are below:

iTunes now includes a new music video experience for Apple Music. Find what's new and popular in Music Videos within Browse, and play videos back-to-back with music video playlists.

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

iTunes 12.7.4 follows iTunes 12.7.3, a January update that introduced support for HomePod. iTunes 12.7, released last September, was the last major update to iTunes, eliminating the built-in App Store to focus solely on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks.

How about just returning to anything before iTunes 12, stop all the Google Material Design UI crap, and go back to a system that shows Apple still cares about people who OWN their own music and don't want to over-complex things up with streaming? :) THAT would be an improvement.

iTunes used to be a great library app. Now it’s just a mess. It is a textbook example of the wisdom of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. The same is also true of iOS and MacOS in many ways too. In the case of the Mac, I feel nothing has been as solid as Snow Leopard once was.

I hate in general how iTunes -- especially the Apple Music part -- feels like a wrapper for a web app now. Maybe it is. But most of all I hate how the previous and next buttons aren't specific to each tab. For instance, if I go into the For You tab and check out an album, then go to the Library tab to change the radio station I'm listening to, then switch back to For You tab... if I then hit the back button, it will switch to the Library tab instead of backing out of the album in For You. Basically there's no individual undo history for each tab and it drives me absolutely crazy.

Uh, yes, something like iTunes 10.7—or something more a pleasure to use than headache.
