Following the seeding of iOS 7 (Beta 6) to developers, yesterday, Apple is this weekend also making available the second beta of the next minor update to its iTunes multimedia player, iTunes 11.1.
Highlighting that this version of iTunes includes the new iTunes Radio – a “great new way to discover music,” Apple notes that iTunes Radio requires OS X 10.7 (or later) and is available only in the U.S.
In addition to seeding the next version of iTunes 11.1 (Beta 2) to developers, the company has this weekend also publicly released iTunes 11.0.5. The update is now available for download via the Mac App Store’s ‘Downloads’ tab, Software Update, or directly from Apple.com, and claims to “[correct] an issue with iTunes in the Cloud, where some purchases may download or play unexpected items.”
iTunes 11.0.4 for Windows 64 is also available. This update is said to “[fix] a problem that may cause iTunes to quit if you switch between wired and wireless syncing and addresses an issue that may require you to log into the iTunes Store repeatedly.”
iTunes 11.1 will likely see its public release alongside, (or shortly after), the official announcement of the next-generation iPhone, now highly expected to happen on the morning of September 10.
