Apple today released an updated version of iTunes, iTunes 12.7.5, which the company says introduces minor app and performance improvements.
The iTunes 12.7.5 update has been released alongside iOS 11.4, tvOS 11.4, and watchOS 4.3.1. Apple has a macOS 10.13.5 update in the works, but has not released it as of yet.
iTunes 12.7.5 can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for free using the Software Update function.
iTunes 12.7.5 comes two months after Apple released iTunes 12.7.4, an update that introduced a new music video experience for Apple Music, adding a music video section to Apple Music in iTunes.
iTunes 12.7, released in 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.

The interface is definitely a bit fractured, but I'm pretty sure that any big overhaul is going to strip out all the power user features. For instance, the iOS Music app jettisoned star ratings a while back in favor of "Loves" which is just beyond useless. Some of us have years and years of music collected in iTunes, smart playlists based on ratings... all kinds of stuff they could ruin if they decided to. I'll take a slightly awkward but powerful interface over a pretty "minimal" one devoid of features any day, thanks.
Thankfully I’m on Spotify now so I don’t even have to launch iTunes. Bliss.
Apple does not want to be a technology leaders, they want to be in control and provide fashion accessories that get bought based on marketing bling. If one is smart, eclectic, power users, etc. Apple does not want you!
By no offense I mean that I am in the same boat as you and have finally had it pounded in my head that Apple is not the company for me. They make good products, not great anymore, but they keep taking away the features I desire.
