After making customers wait an extra month Apple believes iTunes 11 is finally ready for primetime. Apple just released iTunes 11 as a free download. You can get the update right here, or by choosing “Check for Updates” in iTunes.

The new iTunes features a number of redesigned elements that are meant to simplify the experience. With a new edge to edge design album artwork is more prominent and users can click on individual albums to get expanded information on the album. Split screen view will allow you to browse your full library while adding songs to a playlist.

You can now create queues with the Up Next feature and search has seen significant improvements as well. iCloud has been built into iTunes 11 for better data synchronization. The iTunes storefront has been updated with a new look that is similar to the iOS version of iTunes. Apple has also made iTunes 11 more social by integrating Facebook likes into every entry.
