itunes 12

Apple on Thursday morning released a new version of iTunes, bringing the media manager to version 12.1.2. The update is a minor one, but important for those who have updated their Macs to the new OS X 10.10.3 software that was seeded yesterday.

More specifically, iTunes 12.1.2 brings about enhanced support for the new Photos app in 10.10.3. The app, which essentially replaces both iPhoto and Aperture, features a new, lighter design and deep integration with Apple’s new iCloud Photo Library.

Here are your release notes:

This update improves support for syncing photos to your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch from the new Photos app for OS X. In addition, this update also adds several refinements to the Get Info window and improves overall stability.

Those that already have iTunes can update via the Mac App Store, and those that don’t can find the latest version on our Downloads page.

    I believe I’m going to update my i6 that’s jailbroken on 8.1.2 to 8.3 and just wait it out for a JB. I don’t think we’re far away from one. And there’s just honestly not enough to make me stay. I want these bugs fixed and 8.3 takes care of a lot of them.

      I made that decision a few weeks ago. Haven’t looked back. You probably won’t either.

      Another jailbreak will resurface soon, I believe.

        Appreciate the reply. I believe I’ll be the same as you. It just works smoothly when all my Apple devices are updated to the latest. Especially with Photos app on Mac now, etc.

      iTunes 12.1.2 works fine for me on 10.10.3.

        I was one of the unlucky ones…I had to use the Terminal app to delete iTunes and then re-install. Everything works fine now.
