Latest iTunes 12.4.1 update fixes VoiceOver problems, other minor issues

Apple on Thursday released a minor update to its iTunes media management platform to address a variety of small problems and bugs, including compatibility issues with the OS X VoiceOver accessibility feature.




According to Apple's release notes, iTunes version 12.4.1 for Mac includes a grab bag of fixes that might in some cases negatively impact software usability. In particular, the update addresses a problem that caused VoiceOver, Mac's automated screen reader technology, to operate unexpectedly.

In addition, the new iTunes version restores the option to Reset Plays and patches a bug that caused the Up Next function to sometimes play tracks out of order. The previous release also prohibited iTunes from crossfading between songs, a longstanding feature some users believe enhances the overall playback experience.

Today's release comes two weeks after iTunes version 12.4 was pushed out with a redesigned user interface and its own set of bug fixes.

Apple's iTunes version 12.4.1 is available as a free Software Update from the Mac App Store.
