iTunes 12.4

by Josh Centers

Apple has released iTunes 12.4 [1] with some design tweaks to simplify the previously ghastly interface. The most notable change is the return of the sidebar as a prominent default screen element. Apple replaced the media kind buttons with a pop-up menu, called the Media Picker, for choosing which media type to view. The company also eliminated the View Options menu — instead, use View > View Options. Finally, the Back and Forward buttons now work across the entire interface, instead of just in the iTunes Store. For more details, see Kirk McElhearn’s write-up for Macworld [2], as well as a list of minor changes [3] on his personal blog. (Free, 233 MB via direct download [4] or via Software Update, 10.8.5+)
