Apple has released iTunes 12.2.2 with several improvements and fixes for the Apple Music service. Clicking the Beats 1 banner in the Radio tab now brings you to a page that displays what show is currently on, as well as links to playlists from previous shows and a complete broadcast schedule. You can also view a list of artists that you’re following on Apple Music, though Kirk McElhearn (author of the recently released “Take Control of iTunes 12: The FAQ”) points out it’s not in an obvious place. First click your name in the toolbar, and then click Following in the popover to see the full list of artists; click a Following button to unfollow an artist (the button morphs to Follow). You can also now tell Apple Music what recommended songs you don’t like. In addition, the update fixes a bug that caused iTunes to lose its place when returning to a previous page in Apple Music, resolves a problem that prevented artists from being sorted correctly in My Music, and fixes an issue where playlists in the action menu failed to match the playlists in your library.
