Download: iTunes 12.5.5 For macOS And Windows Released, Here’s What Has Changed

Apple has made available to download iTunes 12.5.5 for both macOS and Windows. Here are the details on this latest release of iTunes.

It’s been a busy old day for Apple’s software teams, and following on from the earlier release of macOS Sierra 10.12.3, iOS 10.2.1, watchOS 3.1.3, and tvOS 10.1.1, users can now also download a newly updated version of iTunes – version 12.5.5 is available to download from the Mac App Store now for macOS users and Windows users can get the update by choosing to “Check for Update.” The option can be found in the iTunes Help menu.


The new release, which comes hot on the heals of a plethora of newly updated software coming out of Cupertino today, does not appear to be a large one. Apple’s release notes do not go into great detail, but no new features or functionality are listed and the only update offered by the company is that the release merely offers “minor app and performance improvements.”

Apple’s previous release of iTunes, 12.5.4, came back in December and brought with it support for the new TV app as well as the Touch Bar on the recently updated MacBook Pro.

It would appear that on the surface at least little has changed in this new release when compared to the one which arrived in December, so we expect the changes to have been made under the hood. That of course means we will likely never really know what Apple changed this time around. We’re just happy in the knowledge that iTunes is still receiving updates, even if we would rather see it be replaced with multiple bespoke apps rather than having everything live under one iTunes branded roof.


Maybe Apple, as a company, will finally get around to sorting that out after finally releasing new Mac Pros and Mac minis. Hey, we can dream, right?
