Apple has rolled out a new iTunes update to fix a bug that could prevent playlist changes from syncing between Macs and iOS devices. The version 12.4.3 release is available to download now from the Mac App Store.

This bug, which has been plaguing iTunes users for a while, meant that playlist changes made on an iPhone, iPad or iPod were not synced back to iTunes on a Mac, leaving users with two different playlists on different devices.

Apple says that issue is now fixed in iTunes 12.4.3, which is available for Mac and Windows users now. If you don’t like the Mac App Store, you can download this update from Apple’s website instead, which is where you’ll also find the Windows version.

This iTunes update comes just two weeks after Apple’s version 12.4.2 update, which fixed another problem that could cause playback issues when listening to Apple Music tracks that lasted less than 60 seconds.
