• Apple Releases iTunes 12.4 with a Redesigned Layout

    Following the release of iOS 9.3.2, and after Apple released OS X El Capitan 10.11.5, the company has released a new version of iTunes as well.

    Apple has officially released iTunes 12.4 to the public, which sees a few changes behind-the-scenes, but also adds a few tweaks to the overall design and layout of the app, making it easier to navigate through the software. The new release launches almost two months after Apple released a minor update that added support for the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro. iTunes 12.3 officially released to the public back in September of last year.

    The new layout was actually hinted at earlier this month, with leaked screenshots sharing the new design layout of iTunes before Apple publicly released the software. Time will tell if the new design does indeed make navigating any easier.

    As far as the new software goes, aside from the new design, iTunes may now also incorporate a safeguard patch that aims to fix a bug that causes locally-owned music files to be deleted without the user’s express permission.

    iTunes 12.4 is now available, and users can download and install the new software through the Updates tab in the Mac App Store.

    Here’s the changelog from Apple:

    • Now enjoy all of your music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and more in a simpler design.
    • Navigation. Now you can use Back and Forward buttons as you navigate between your Library, Apple Music, iTunes Store, and more.
    • Media Picker. Easily switch between Music, Movies, TV shows and more–and Edit to choose just the items you want.
