iTunes 12

iTunes 12 has been released and it now places a greater emphasis on streaming and the iTunes store than a users' own library.

The changes start from the main page. Gone is the drop-down box and it is replaced by a series of icons representing Music, Movies and so forth, plus a "..." for more options.

The Apps store now also gets its own dedicated shortcut.

Also missing is the Home Sharing shortcut which has moved to the Menu.

The biggest changes are to the Music page with individual shortcuts to a user's library based on Artist, Songs and Albums now reduced to simply "My Music". The page now integrates the iTunes store as well as Radio.

iTunes Store

The iTunes page is largely unchanged though the "carousel" now features flattened art instead of a 3D flip.
