As an iOS user, I love iTunes. It makes managing your devices and your content so simple. Yet, unlike most other Apple software, it can also be incredible frustrating. It’s renowned for its issues, and so new updates promising to fix bugs are always good news.
Version 10.6.1 is the latest. Released by Apple yesterday, this release packs a stack of bug fixes, and promises to fix unexpected quitting, VoiceOver issues, freezes, and problems with organizing TV shows. Apple’s release notes read:
