    Apple today released an updated version of iTunes, iTunes 12.7.4, which introduces a new music video experience for Apple Music. A music video section lets users discover new and popular music videos in the Browse section of Apple Music, and there's an option to create Apple Music playlists for videos.

    Apple's full release notes for iTunes 12.7.4 are below:
    Today's iTunes update can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for free using the Software Update function.

    iTunes 12.7.4 follows iTunes 12.7.3, a January update that introduced support for HomePod. iTunes 12.7, released last September, was the last major update to iTunes, eliminating the built-in App Store to focus solely on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks.

    How about just returning to anything before iTunes 12, stop all the Google Material Design UI crap, and go back to a system that shows Apple still cares about people who OWN their own music and don't want to over-complex things up with streaming? :) THAT would be an improvement.

    The OS update is usually immediately preceded by a new XCode release, and that also happened today :)

    ...And still no way to delete custom tones from an iPhone.

    iTunes used to be a great library app. Now it’s just a mess. It is a textbook example of the wisdom of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”. The same is also true of iOS and MacOS in many ways too. In the case of the Mac, I feel nothing has been as solid as Snow Leopard once was.

    Uh, yes, something like iTunes 10.7—or something more a pleasure to use than headache.

    Does it still have round bubble icons for the artist with many microphone circles? Can you minimize the player to a small size with album artwork or does the player default to a ginormous size that takes up your whole web page?

    I hate in general how iTunes -- especially the Apple Music part -- feels like a wrapper for a web app now. Maybe it is. But most of all I hate how the previous and next buttons aren't specific to each tab. For instance, if I go into the For You tab and check out an album, then go to the Library tab to change the radio station I'm listening to, then switch back to For You tab... if I then hit the back button, it will switch to the Library tab instead of backing out of the album in For You. Basically there's no individual undo history for each tab and it drives me absolutely crazy.

    They seem to be released on Mondays lately, for the most part, so my entirely uneducated guess would be.....Monday.

    One thing for sure, is that I cannot manage my local app library and ringtone with this update whatsoever.

    Yes. Strangely there doesn’t seem to be a windows version yet.

    Resume playback finally implemented? What I meant is that you are listening a very long playlist of thousands of songs, quit iTunes, reboot the Mac or shut down the Mac. The next time that you open iTunes it starts from song number one again, but you want it to resume from the last song played (say, song number 1456 or whatever). For me that is the most essential feature missing in iTunes, and it was available in SoundJam MP back in 2001, from where iTunes was developed.

    Never mind.
    Instead of checking through iTunes 'check for updates'..

    check using the Apple Software Update tool.
    it comes up

    Even till today I often find myself tripping over the interface trying to get to where I need to be, it's so damn unnecessarily complex and "improved" from what used to just work, which was selecting your media just from the left-side menu, instantly and intuitively. In fact, for a day or so long ago after iTunes 12 poisoned my macbook air, I was panicked that iTunes deleted some videos of mine, only to discover they were hidden under "home movies," a sub-menu under videos or wherever (can't remember at the moment). WTH is wrong with Apple's software/UI team since ~2012/2013?

    You need to get off the unnecessary-update train. Go install 12.6.3.6, which is an offshoot from the normal releases and will let you have you own on-computer copies of apps to manage, and then that's it. Don't update after that.

    I'm running that on my Macbook and can still browse/buy from the App store with it. I'm staying on 10.7 on my main computer for music listening.

    This is cool.... I've been saying for years that I want a streaming service like Spotify that plays the music video with every song.

    Like old-school MTV.... or like sitting in a Hard Rock Cafe.
