So in just a few generations, iTunes went from being a svelte piece of software to an octopus of an application—and with that, an array of problems began popping up. iTunes 7, for instance, saw 18 updates in less than 12 months. Likewise, iTunes 10 (with Ping!) had 19 updates in a a year. iTunes 11, meanwhile, needed 17 patches in its 11 month life. On the bright side, things are looking better for iTunes 12—with only three releases since its rollout in October—but the launch of Apple Music could easily upend that. So, as we all laugh at Flash for its seemingly bi-weekly parade of upgrade prompts, it’s fair to ask if iTunes is any better.
