    As we come closer to the iOS 7 public release that is expected later on this afternoon, Apple is getting ready by updating App Store applications and the ever-so-important iTunes software for Mac OS X and Windows.

    iTunes 11.1 has been released to the public with full compatibility with the upcoming iOS 7 upgrade. In addition, the update adds a number of new features for users, including the following via the changelog:

    iTunes Radio. iTunes Radio is a great new way to discover music. Choose from over 250 stations or start a new one from your favorite artist or song. Enjoy iTunes Radio ad-free once you subscribe to iTunes Match.

    Genius Shuffle. Introducing a magical new way to experience your music library. Choose Genius Shuffle and iTunes instantly plays songs that go great together. Click it again to hear something new—enjoying your music has never been this easy.

    Podcast Stations. You can now create custom stations of your favorite podcasts that update automatically with new episodes. Your stations, subscriptions, and current play position sync over iCloud to the Podcasts app.

    Sync with iOS 7. You can now use iTunes to sync your favorite music, movies, and more to devices with iOS 7. In addition, iTunes now makes it even easier to quickly organize and sync apps to your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
    Users will be able to download and install the update from the Mac App Store’s Software Update utility feature, or you can download the latest version of iTunes manually from Apple’s Web site via this link.

    I just tried to download it and it took about 30 seconds to 1 minute for it to actually pop up for me to save the download file to my desktop. It may just be a little slow of reacting due to servers being clogged. :GoodLuck: :cheers:

    New iTunes comes with Mavericks Preview 8! If you're still running earlier versions of Mavericks or Mountain Lion, you'll have to manually download it as of right now.
