Apple Updates iTunes To Provide Users With ‘Simple’ Navigation
Apple's iTunes interface, which has been causing serious issues for users, has finally been modified to a much simpler version of iTunes 12.4, the latest release.
Last Monday, Apple released iTunes 12.4, simplifying the navigation feature of the management app. Apple's release notes for iTunes 12.4 say, "Now enjoy all of your music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and more in a simpler design," reported Macworld. Users can update iTunes to the latest version from the App Store on Mac.
Although Apple aimed to make the navigation simpler, yet to achieve so, it has brought back an older interface of the app. The existing interface contains a navigation bar on the left-hand side, which gives quick access to specific views for each section being used.
Thus, if users are listening to music, they can sort out the music by albums, artists and playlists, which have been created. This makes it easier than searching the music in the dropdown menu, which the previous version consisted, according to The Verge.
Unfortunately, the recent update does not cover the main issue with iTunes navigation, i.e., the difficulty in finding a specific section. The update, however, shifted the dropdown menu from right to left, thus freeing up the screen.
Notably, users will still have to search for the specific sections they want to access such as the App Store or the Apple Music section, which might confuse the users more than its older version. Additionally, the "View Options" menu, which was present on the right sidebar, has also been removed. Hence, users who want to access that can do so by choosing "View" and then "View Options" or by pressing Command button and J.
The latest update addresses several complaints of the users about a sidebar, simplification of the navigation, and Forward and Back buttons to make iTunes simpler. Thus, it is safe to say that Apple is aiming towards simplification of the interface to make the app more usable.
