No new features are believed to be part of this new release, but Apple confirmed via the software’s release notes that it is aimed at fixing a couple of bugs that have been plaguing those who use iTunes as their podcast manager.
If you do still use iTunes as your app of choice for subscribing and listening to podcasts then you may want to pay attention to this particular update because it’s been pushed out by Apple in order to correct one big issue that caused some podcasts to not update with new episodes as well as another that simply causes iTunes to become unresponsive when browsing said podcasts.
