According to Apple's release notes, there are no notable new features, but the new version of iTunes should be installed as soon as possible because of the security improvements

iTunes for Windows is typically updated every few months, and this update follows an October release that saw Apple add options for listening to podcasts and audiobooks.

iTunes has been phased out on the Mac for several years now and it has been replaced with Finder and the TV app, but Apple has continued to keep the Windows version available.

iTunes for Windows can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store or from Apple's website.

I wish we could have the windows iTunes back on MacOS. Its a better app that is way easier to navigate and use the find feature. Music on MacOS is a giant pile of confusion. Secret key commands to bring up the old find features. Kludge.

I miss iTunes. The mac/tech blogger sphere was all aflame in their hate towards iTunes for reasons I don't understand. iTunes was a superior app to music. I especially like how easy it was to create my own ringtones.

I wish we had a simpler, more functional music app on iPhone too - Apple Music is messy.
