You can also select a Genius Mix and delete it by pressing the Mac's Delete key or by Control- or right-clicking on the mix and choosing Remove [ name of mix]. When you remove a Genius Mix a new one doesn't spring up in its place. To restore all deleted mixes, Control- or right-click in the Genius Mixes pane or on the Genius Mixes entry in iTunes' Source list and choose Restore All Mixes. You don't have the option to restore individual mixes--it's all or nothing.Also, unlike with Genius Mixes that appeared in previous versions of iTunes, you can rearrange mixes within the Genius Mixes pane by dragging them around. Also, when you start playing a Genius Mix you see not just a Play/Pause icon as you once did, but also Next and Previous icons, making it easier to move between tracks in the mix. (Unfortunately, there's still no way to see what songs actually make up a Genius Mix.) Books At one time, iTunes' Source list carried an Audiobooks entry. This has changed to read Books in iTunes 9.1. When you select this entry you'll see not only any files that have been tagged as audiobooks, but also ePub documents that you've added to iTunes--either via iTunes' iBookstore or by dragging ePub documents into iTunes that you've obtained from other sources. Currently there's no way to read ePub documents within iTunes. Books are also reflected in the tabs that appear when you select a connected iPod or iPhone (and, surely, an iPad). Currently, that tab shows only audiobooks, but presumably it will also display e-books when you select Books with an iPad attached. The small stuff There are many small changes with the update. They include:
- In the Advanced tab of iTunes' Preferences you now find a Reset iTunes Store Cache option.
- The Controls menu now includes commands for raising and lowering iTunes' volume.
- The Help menu changes the name of the Welcome To iTunes command to iTunes Tutorials and adds a new iPad Help command (which currently leads nowhere helpful as the iPad Manuals and Service And Support links provide no information).
- The Show Duplicates command is now called Display Duplicates.
- The Column Browser has two additions--Group Compilations and Use Album Artists.
- Applications are now called "Apps" just about everywhere.
- The Info tab within an iPhone or iPod touch pane has been reorganized to include an Other area that includes Sync Safari Bookmarks and Sync Notes.
- Some tabs within an iPhone or iPod touch pane use the words "newest" and "oldest" rather than "most recent" and "least recent."
- The contents of some contextual menus have changed. You no longer see a command for converting media or converting to ringtone within these menus. The Reset Skip Count command is gone. "Consolidate Tracks" has been changed to "Consolidate Files." And "Get CD Track Names" is now termed "Get Track Names."
