      1. Actually what they’re talking about is how Match and other Purchased content is now integrated into the iTunes library. You can see all your content right in the library and just download any that isn’t currently available, with out needing to go into the iTunes Store.

  1. Guess I’m staying on iTunes 6 since my server is an old Power Mac G5 running Leopard 10.5.8. Maybe I’ll update the server one day if Apple ever puts out a Mac Mini capable holding 2TB of internal drives from the factory.

    1. good config. no reason to ditch a PowerPC machine when it still works great as a media server.

      FWIW, you can also have the PowerPC machine host all the files, and keep the iTunes directory on a portable (I recommend the Air).

  2. This is just a stop gap that holds you over until iTunes 11 in October so that you can use IOS 6 devices in service Sept 21…. Nothing new… Just can’t release new devices and IOS and have iTunes stop functioning.

  3. I have been using iOS 6 on an iPad and an iPhone since the first iOS 6 beta months ago and have not had the first problem with iTunes Match. All of my music from iTunes 10.6.3 was available on all devices and the option to automatically add new music to my devices, however undesirable, was there as well…

    I’m not sure exactly what we’ve added here. What I do know, however, is that once you go to the final release of iOS 6 (iOS 6 GM,) that device will no longer sync via iTunes Match to any version of iTunes before 10.7. That being said, my development experience would say that there is a flaw in 10.6.3 that somebody wants to bury. 🙂

  4. Does anyone know whether the iTunes player on the iPhone 5 has been updated? I know this may be considered as cutting edge technology by some, but it would be great to be able to crossfade tracks/playlists on the iPhone…this being 2012 and all. Setting markers and notes in longer podcasts would also be cool (esp for lectures etc). Also, why does coverflow only work on the master lib? If I have a playlist and decide to browse through the tracks by using coverflow, I’m being taken to the master lib. That’s beyond retarded.
