    So i recently bought a 15 inch mbp and it is very fast and smooth in everything, except for itunes. Everytime i scroll through the album view there are stuttering and beach balls whenever i change songs. Is this normal?


    I assumed it was an issue with the integrated graphics card but the lag is still there even when im using the radeon pro 460

    I'm getting beachballs all over the place when switching songs in iTunes... Not sure it's actually related with the new MacBook Pro or if it's Sierra.

    Did you tried with another MacBook Pro?

    No i only have one macbook atm. I think it might have to do with the touchbar though. It never lagged this bad on my old 2010 mbp

    Oddly enough this only happens with some of my playlists. Some others are just fine...

    Have similar problem on my new 15" when dealing with movies.

    It is not a Sierra issue, my 2014 MBP works OK.

    Hopefully the solution is to wait for Sierra 10.12.3.

    Having similar issues in iTunes…

    I could fix it by using Swinsian instead of iTunes. It can even pull your iTunes library.
