NEW: Apps By Apple ID

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 15:18:32 +0000

Now that iTunes 12.7 no longer manages iOS apps, you’re left with a “Mobile Applications” folder containing the apps iTunes has been backing up for all these years. For most users this folder can be Trashed after updating to iTunes 12.7. But if your Mobile Appplications folder contains apps purchased with multiple Apple IDs, you […]

Considerations When Updating to High Sierra

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 15:26:41 +0000

If you perform a clean install of the operating system, an “iTunes” folder will not be created in the user “Library” folder nor the local “Library” folder (the one at the top level of the startup disk). This has been the case since at least macOS 10.12.2. Do not confuse this “iTunes” folder with the […]

Drag From Audiobooks Fixed in iTunes 12.7

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 12:16:19 +0000

I may be the only person who cares about this, but iTunes 12.7 fixes a very long-standing bug that prevented dragging tracks from the Audiobooks library to another app, say Join Together. Thanks!

Playlist Description in iTunes 12.7

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 11:03:26 +0000

I really like that you can add a description to playlists. In iTunes 12.7, now that “Edit Playlist” is gone, it’s even less obvious how to do this than previously. In iTunes 12.7, make sure a playlist is in Playlist View (rather than Songs View or Album View, and so on). Right-click anywhere in the […]

iTunes 12.7 Is Available

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 00:34:54 +0000

Apple has released a new version of iTunes that makes some significant changes. “The new iTunes focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks,” says the support page. And as a result, it no longer manages your iOS apps or Ringtones. iTunes U content has been moved to Podcasts and Internet Radio can be […]

TrackSift 2 Updated

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 12:40:41 +0000

Over the weekend, Apple approved and posted my update to TrackSIft 2. This latest version fixes a problem some users were seeing with the “Tracks Without Lyrics” tool that prevented the tool from recognizing accessible tracks. I’ve gotten several reports from users that this is successfully patched. You can get more information about TrackSift 2 […]

iTunes U Moving to Podcasts

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 16:53:05 +0000

Apple has announced that iTunes U content will soon be moved to Podcasts. When that happens, iTunes U content will only be available through the iOS Podcasts app or the Podcasts section of iTunes. In iTunes, the iTunes U section will disappear. What. You were expecting an iTunes U app?

Find Tracks with Multiple Artworks

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 17:06:59 +0000

This will corral all the tracks in the Music library that have more than one assigned artwork to a new playlist (whose name you supply; any existing playlist(s) with that name will be deleted beforehand): tell application "iTunes" try set newPlaylistName to text returned of (display dialog ¬ "Enter a name for the playlist:" default […]

Rolling Out Updates for High Sierra

Sun, 03 Sep 2017 14:05:56 +0000

Apple will be announcing new hardware and software at a September 12 Event. Most of the attention, of course, is on the sparkly mobile-oriented stuff. Those of us anchored to iMacs and Macbooks will hopefully hear a sentence or two about macOS 10.13 High Sierra which I reckon will be released in late September (Sierra […]

Dropbox Dropping Support for Older OSs Soon

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 12:41:54 +0000

I just got an email from Dropbox letting me know that as of November 3, new installations of Dropbox will be no longer be possible on macOS 10.6 (Snow Leopard), 10.7 (Lion) and 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and Windows Vista. Then, on January 17, 2018, support for these OSs will be discontinued entirely. There is more […]
