Apple releases iTunes 12.5.1 with all-new Apple Music design, iOS 10 support, Siri commands in Sierra

Apple's iTunes media suite was given a big update on Tuesday, including the ability to play music using Siri when macOS Sierra launches later this month, and picture-in-picture support for videos.

iTunes 12.5.1 is now available to download from the Mac App Store as a free update. It includes support for iOS 10, which is set to be released later on Tuesday.

Other features in iTunes 12.5.1, according to Apple, are:

  • Now with an all-new Apple Music design, which brings greater clarity and simplicity to every aspect of the experience.
  • Siri. Play music from your Library and Apple Music using your voice. Just ask Siri.
  • Picture-in-Picture. Watch videos as you multitask and use different apps. Your video floats above your desktop in any corner of the screen.

While any iTunes user will gain the new Apple Music interface, support for Siri and Picture-in-Picture requires macOS Sierra. That update will be publicly available for free in one week, on Sept. 20.
