iTunes 11.1.4

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released iTunes 11.1.4 with a bit of a mystery. The release notes claim that this update adds the capability to view your Wish List while viewing your iTunes library. Previously, your Wish List was available only when viewing the iTunes Store, by clicking the My Wish List link on the main screen of the store. Although Apple didn’t call this out, iTunes now features a three-lined “hamburger” button at the top right corner below the search bar, and clicking it displays your Wish List. You’ll also find a list of songs that have been played through iTunes Radio here, as well as a history of recently accessed previews. Other changes include improved support for Arabic and Hebrew localizations and the usual unspecified stability improvements. iTunes 11.1.4 is available as a direct download from Apple’s iTunes Web page or via Software Update. (Free, 222 MB)
