iTunes 11.0.5 is out with fix for iTunes in the Cloud issue

iTunes 11 (Albums)

Apple has just released an update for iTunes, bringing the software to version 11.0.5. The update features a fix for a known iTunes in the Cloud issue, where some purchases would download or play unexpected media items.

Today’s update comes just a little more than two months after the previous iTunes update, 11.0.4, which brought about improved syncing, and just a day after iOS 7 beta 6 landed, which fixed a similar iTunes in the Cloud issue…

From the 11.0.5 release notes:

“This update corrects an issue with iTunes in the Cloud, where some purchases may download or play unexpected items. “

Notably, while this update appears to fix the same issue as yesterday’s surprise iOS 7 beta, it doesn’t require you to take any additional steps. Still, Apple seems to be flushing out an iTunes in the Cloud problem across the board, so we expect to see a new iTunes 11.1 beta (for developers only) shortly.

As usual, you can find the latest version of iTunes in the Mac App Store, or by visiting the ‘Check for Update’ tab in iTunes.
