Apple released the latest iTunes update 12.6 just a month ago – it turns out. The new update makes it easier for you to listen to your playlists. Now you can open any of them in its own window. It was a much-missed feature, that’s finally back. You also get a bigger artwork inside the Mini Player. And there’s it.
