iTunes has provided a Recently Added smart playlist for years, but iTunes 12 has a fresh take on the idea. When you choose certain combinations of media kind, view and sort order at the top of your library, iTunes will display a Recently Added group above the content you’ve asked it to display. This makes it easy to find music bought in the last few months. You can change how far back it looks to one, three, six or 12 months under View > Recently Added, or it can be turned off if you dislike it, and it can be hidden for, say, movies but kept on for music. iTunes 12 no longer displays the traditional sidebar in all views – not even as a fallback option in the View menu. However, something very similar appears if you choose Playlists from the views listed in the middle of the navigation bar. The column browser remains available, too, but it’s easily missed. When viewing your music, switch the sort order (top-right) to Songs. Now you can enable View > Column Browser > Show Column Browser to return to iTunes’ oldest layout. For movies, it’s accessible when you choose Movie List as the sort order, and when you choose Episode List for TV shows. Apple has given iTunes yet another makeover in Yosemite, but for the most part things have pretty much stayed in their rightful place. However, if you’re looking for the button that transforms the giant iTunes window into a more manageable and unobtrusive miniplayer, you won’t find it in its old spot; instead Apple has incorporated it into the playing window. Just click the album art and you’ll be rocking out to tiny tunes. iTunes 12 has a new editor for making adjustments to track metadata, with a pop-up (at the bottom-left) to add more fields. If you prefer the old-style, form-like editor, in which checkboxes give a clear view of what changes will be applied, hold ç and å, right-click your selection and then choose Get Info. If asked to confirm editing of multiple items, keep the keys held until after you’ve clicked the Edit Items button.
