Apple releases iTunes 11.0.4 with improved syncing and other bug fixes

itunes 1104

Apple has posted an update for iTunes this morning, bringing the software to version 11.0.4. The update comes just a few weeks after the big 11.0.3 release, which included a revamped mini player, support for multidisc albums, and more.

Unfortunately, today’s update isn’t nearly as glamorous. As you can see in the change log posted above, it’s more of a maintenance release, with fixes for two well known bugs having to do with device syncing and user login requests… 

More specifically, 11.0.4 fixes the problem that can cause iTunes to quit if you switch between wired and wireless syncing. And it also addresses the issue that causes the iTunes Store to ask you to login to your account repeatedly.

I have to say, I’ve been experiencing the latter issue and it was beginning to get a bit frustrating. It seemed like every time I opened up the iTunes Store I was being asked to enter my credentials. So I’m really glad that it’s been fixed.

As usual, Mac users can find the update by visiting the Mac App Store and clicking on the Updates tab. You can also find it by visiting our Downloads page and tapping the ‘latest version of iTunes’ link located down toward the bottom.
