    Alongside the release of macOS Sierra 10.12.6, which came after a two month beta testing period, Apple has introduced a new version of iTunes, iTunes 12.6.2.

    iTunes 12.6.2 is a minor update, with Apple's release notes saying only that it introduces minor app and performance improvements.

    Today's iTunes update can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for free using the Software Update function.

    iTunes 12.6.2 follows iTunes 12.6.1, another minor update that was released back in May.

    The download of the update in the App Store stalled twice for me, before the installation could take place.

    But they missed to mark it as beta and also it referred to iOS 10.3 an tvOS 10.3 only.

    Nothing special in here too what might hint to a beta release:

    "minor app and performance improvements."

    There are millions of people hitting Apple's CDN for updates right now. It's always busy and slow right after 10 AM pacific time.

    I wish either in iTunes or iOS they would reenable downloading of purchased apps. Such a hassle for those of us who have no internet on our home computers. Miss that feature of iOS 8.

    But you can re-download purchases Apps on iOS. Go to the App Store and tap Updates and then at the top, Purchased.

    Get used to it. Anything inconvenient for Apple, just seems to get deleted, unless of course it appeals to the dominant social media crazed teen culture.

    The key word with Apple anymore is "Minor".

    I'm still holding out for Apple Music for macOS when High Sierra is released this Fall.

    I am not sure how this app went from being one of the most seamless apps to such rubbish. On windows it's just horrible as if no one tests it before releasing it.

    I just want to see an announcement:

    "Apple releases iTunes X.x., a major update that fixes millions of bugs, annoyances, flakey behaviours, and isn't a pile of total crap and a nagging advertising platform to try and get you to pay £15 a month for music you've already bought (a.k.a. "Apple Music") and just bloody works. Again".

    Any bets on whether Apple will stealthily update the build by a few increments within a week, without noting it or changing the version numbers that people do pay attention to?

    Gotta continue the streak that's taken place for the last two iTunes releases.

    I see so much hate for iTunes yet I don't have any issues with it? It's been mostly trouble free and fast.

    I don't know what I'm doing differently as I use it quite heavily.

    Please get with the narrative. Don't you want to fit in? All the cool kids hate it.

    Does this fix the mini player so the artwork is smaller? The only option is to display artwork in large format in mini player. They ruined it.
