Along with the public release of iOS 8.4.1, which added lots of fixes for Apple Music and Beats 1, Apple also has a bevy of iTunes improvements ready today.

Apple just released iTunes 12.2.2, and the update makes using Beats 1 and Apple Music in iTunes a slightly less horrible experience.

The update is available as an update in the Mac App Store or via direct download from Apple’s website.

Fixes include the following:

  • Click on the Beats 1 banner to see what’s currently on, or view a complete broadcast schedule so you never miss a show
  • You can now view a list of the artists you’re following on Apple Music
  • Resolved an issue where iTunes loses its place when you go back to a previous page in Apple Music
  • Addressed a problem where artists may be sorted incorrectly in My Music
  • Fixed a problem where playlists displayed in the action menu may not match the playlist in your library
  • Artists can now share thoughts, photos, music and videos to Connect, right from iTunes.
