Apple Releases iTunes 11.1.5 For OS X: Fixes A Crashing Bug, Improves iBooks

February 26, 2014

Apple has just published an update for its OS X iTunes app. The update, iTunes 11.1.5, is in the process of reaching users via the Mac App Store, and it fixes one particular bug while enhancing compatibility with iBooks.

The release notes explain: “This update fixes a problem that may cause iTunes to quit unexpectedly when a device is connected,” adding that iTunes 11.1.5 also “improves compatibility with iBooks on OS X Mavericks.”

Apple’s iTunes update comes following its recent release of OS X 10.9.2. This fixed a dangerous SSL vulnerability in OS X, while also promising to improve the Mail app, Safari, and VoiceOver. Here’s a complete list of changes:

  • Improves the accuracy of unread counts in Mail
  • Resolves an issue that prevented Mail from receiving new messages from certain providers
  • Improves AutoFill compatibility in Safari
  • Fixes an issue that may cause audio distortion on certain Macs
  • Improves reliability when connecting to a file server using SMB2
  • Fixes an issue that may cause VPN connections to disconnect
  • Improves VoiceOver navigation in Mail and Finder

OS X 10.9.2, as well as iTunes 11.1.5, can be downloaded using the “Updates” tab in the Mac App Store. Over on the iOS side, iOS 7.0.6 fixed the same SSL bug last week; if you haven’t already, we’d recommend you download all three pronto.
