Apple on Monday released iTunes 12.4, adding a new, simpler design element to its user interface along with standard bug fixes.

The new version also introduces a sidebar for easier navigation as well as a revamped media picker and may also include safeguards to protect users from an issue that could cause music stored in iTunes to be deleted. The deletion problem affected a small number of users and while Apple was not able to recreate the bug, the company promised “additional safeguards.”


This fix has yet to be officially confirmed by Apple and was not specifically mentioned in the release notes.

iTunes 12.4 can be downloaded through the App Store and its “Updates” tab. The program requires Mac OS X 10.8.5 or later to install and run.

If you’ve tried iTunes 12.4 and have any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.

  4. It seems Apple took away more than they added. Just a couple things I’ve tried that are no longer available it appears…1) no option to reset play counts. 2) no option to convert to AAC/MP3/etc.
