Apple releases iTunes 12.5.4 with support for 'TV' app, improved Touch Bar input

Apple on Tuesday issued an update for its iTunes media suite, adding support for the new "TV" app on iOS and tvOS, and also enhancing Touch Bar capabilities with the new MacBook Pro.

iTunes 12.5.4 is now available for download direct from Apple, or via software update in the Mac App Store. In the release notes, Apple mentions support for the new "TV" app, as well as the MacBook Pro Touch Bar, but does not offer any additional details.

The new MacBook Pro shipped with built-in support for iTunes in its new dynamic Touch Bar. New MacBook Pros shipped with an earlier version of iTunes installed, though Touch Bar support was buggy.

Apple's release notes don't say how iTunes 12.5.4 improves Touch Bar support, beyond noting that the scrubber can be used to "easily go to different parts of songs, movies, TV shows and more."

iTunes 12.5.4 also includes minor app and performance improvements, Apple said. The previous update, iTunes 12.5.3, was released in late October.
