Apple releases iTunes 9.1.1, fixing VoiceOver, Genius Mixes issues

Apple on Tuesday released a minor update for iTunes, its media player suite for Mac and Windows, with version 9.1.1 bringing fixes for a number of issues, including stability and usability problems with VoiceOver and Genius Mixes.

According to Apple, iTunes 9.1.1 provides a number of "important bug fixes." They include:

  • Addresses several stability issues with VoiceOver
  • Addresses a usability issue with VoiceOver and Genius Mixes
  • Addresses issues with converting songs to 128 kbps AAC while syncing
  • Addresses other issues that improve stability and performance

The update is available via software update or direct from Apple. iTunes 9.1.1 is a 93MB file available for Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later, Windows XP Service Pack 2, Windows Vista 32 bit and 64 bit, and Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit.

iTunes 9.1 arrived late last month just before the iPad went on sale in the U.S. That update added a number of new features, including the ability to sync and organize books with the software, and the ability to rename, rearrange or remove Genius Mixes.

The update also added the ability to automatically convert songs to 128 Kbps AAC format when syncing with a specific device, shrinking the file size to allow users to fit more onto their iPhone, iPod or iPad. Previously that feature was only available for the iPod shuffle.
