In the rush of recent updates to the iPad, the iMac, iOS and OS X, it's easy to overlook Apple's updates to one of its long-standing programs: iTunes.
Yes, iTunes 12 is out and it brought with it some major changes. Predictably, some are good while some other updates have people upset. Let's take a look at both.
The first big update is the look. iTunes is designed to fit in with OS X Yosemite, so everything is flatter. That's good, but for this same reason, Apple has eliminated the sidebar.
This is one thing people are upset about, since the sidebar has been around forever. Now to get to your media libraries, you have to click one of the icons in the top left corner.
However, you can get the sidebar back, sort of. If you click the "Playlists" button in the top center of the screen, you'll get a sidebar with the playlists for the media library you've selected.
