If Apple does not now sometime soon with its streaming service, then they are last. Why Google that - despite their known tense situation with the music industry - riff before, we can only be attributed to the fact that gradually gives an idea of Mobile First there too. Best, but Apple is waiting out there to introduce the same in several markets.
But the 11.0.3 version of iTunes has at least an improved mini-player, where you finally see where you are in the play and gets a little more control over playback functions and active playlist. In addition, there is a new view for albums on several CDs (yes, there are still). The update comes as usual via software update in the App Store.
