    has anyone else noticed that iTunes 12.4 has scrambled all the “tracks” metadata – both in playlists & artist/album panes? did my Library take a hit (unlikely, since it’s on a RAID-1 external drive) or is this a new Apple feature (mythical track display)?

    Now that I have “upgraded” to the latest iTunes, iTunes will not open. Had to reboot multiple times before it would install. Now it does not work at all..

    Yet another poor apple update of iTunes, this is 2016 why are we going back to sidebars, why can’t I define the time period for recently added. I don’t want to have to keep swapping tabs, go back to a self defined recently added atop the album view.

    Smart playlist doesn’t work correctly, for example if I go to the genre tag and add up the number of albums with the word country in the genre I get 358, but my smart list to do the same thing i”t come up as 344, so where are those 14 albums

    Far far too often are we getting iTunes interface updates that suit a member of the iTunes team at apple, but make it less intuitive for the rest of the world.

    Has anyone else that has updated to 12.4 seen this problem i have.
    I cannot find my iphone/ipad anywhere in the interface.
    There used to be an icon up top to pick them to sync/update but i can’t find it anywhere. and clicking on menu > devices nothing shows up either ;P
