    Along with updates for iOS, OS X, and watchOS 2, Apple today released a new version of iTunes, iTunes 12.3.1. The update is a minor one, with the release notes only saying it improves overall stability and performance.

    The iTunes update can be downloaded from the software update function in the Mac App Store.

    iTunes 12.3.1 comes just over a month after the release of iTunes 12.3, which brought support for iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan. iTunes 12, which brought a major redesign to the iTunes software, was initially released in 2014 alongside OS X Yosemite.

    Will this finally fix the missing songs bug whenever syncing an iPhone with iTunes?

    Nope, got the recurring update thing for iTunes. You know, where you update and it says you still need an update so you update again and it says you still need an update, etc.

    Cheeky buggers have ticked Show Apple Music in preferences on both of my Macs so that the tabs show up again after this iTunes update. :mad:

    Yup. They would explode if they wouldn't force something on us.

    The "Up Next" behavior is still horribly broken

    I hope this fixes the issue where songs I *bought* from iTunes during the Apple Music trial period show as "purchased" (and so are unavailable) from iTunes on my iPhone and won't sync to my iPhone from iTunes on my Mac mini...

    The Apple Music content should have never been "consolidated" with my existing iTunes library.

    :mad:

    Same here... I guess they don't want to take NO as an answer.

    I came here to complain about the same thing. They even DIRECTED me to the trial page the moment I went to go open it after the update. I guess we'll be doing this for every update from now on. Blah!

    Stability my ass. 12.3.1 made iTunes even slower on my machine. 20 minute boot up time!

    Apple needs to figure this **** out. There is no reason whatsoever that it should be this problematic to run a simple audio player. I run ableton live recording and playing hi quality audio files with multiple tracks and plugins running with zero problems.

    Well your machine has problems then. My 5 year Macbook Pro (Intel Core 2 Duo; 8 GB RAM; Seagate SSHD) can open iTunes in just 4 seconds.

    Yup. It sounds like your problem extends way beyond iTunes.

    Go the the Apple Support forums and ask them what's up. You usually get good help from the community.
