Following today’s releases of iOS 10, watchOS 3, and tvOS 10, Apple has begun rolling out an update for iTunes which gives users the new Apple Music experience we’ve all waited for since WWDC 2016. The update, carrying the version number 12.5.1, is now being received by both Mac and Windows users.
Starting with the new Apple Music design (seen above), Apple basically built the new look of the music streaming service from the ground up. Bolder text, improved navigation via horizontal sliders, brighter colors, and simplified looks give the new UI a nice, easy, and appealing look to the eye. For now, it’s unclear just when Apple Music users on Android will receive the new design, however stay tuned.
Alongside the new Apple Music interface, exclusive new features built for macOS Sierra are also present which includes the ability to control your music using Siri while videos played in iTunes now support Picture-in-Picture mode. iTunes 12.5.1 also adds full support for iOS 10 devices, including the upcoming iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
If you wanna update iTunes to version 12.5.1 on your Mac, head over to the App Store can click the Updates tab. There, you’ll find a listing very similar to the one seen above. Just click the ‘Update’ button and you’ll be good to go. It’s worth noting that you’ll need OS X 10.9.5 or higher to get this update. If you’re on Windows, you’ll need to have Windows 7 or higher on your PC. If you do, head to the Apple Software Update app and check for updates. You’ll then see the iTunes 12.5.1 listing within the window. Just click ‘Install’ at the bottom and restart your computer.
