iTunes 11 Update Includes Feature to View Wish List in Your Library; But No One Can Find It

Apple released an update to iTunes yesterday, with the following release notes:

This version of iTunes adds the ability to see your Wish List while viewing your iTunes library, improves support for Arabic and Hebrew, and includes additional stability improvements.

The odd thing about this update, though, is that the Wish List feature is nowhere to be found.

I find it interesting that many web sites mention this feature, but most don’t say that it’s not there. (That’s not the case for Macworld, where Jon Seff says, “iTunes 11.1.4 purportedly liberates your Wish List from the confines of the Store.”)

I wonder what happened. Parts of the iTunes interface use WebKit, the HTML rendering engine used for Safari and other web tools; this is the case with the sidebar, and I have a feeling that the Wish List will show up there, but that something went wrong on the server side. I find it quite embarrassing for Apple to announce a new feature in a software update yet not have that feature available.

I’ll post more if it suddenly appears in my iTunes.

    It’s a no show. So, apart from Arabic and Hebrew, which are of no use to me, just what did my 128MB download give me?

    When looking at the iTunes Store – click the “three horizontal bars” button in the top right corner, and you will see a wish list tab.

      That’s not new, and the update notes clearly say that you can view the wish list from your library.

    I think there is something else with this update…my DAC (connected via USB), which was previously showing 16 bit/44.1 kHz for CDs ripped in ALAC, now shows 24 bit/44.1 kHz…. strange

    add song to wish list from iTunes Store by clicking on the arrow with the price for the track then select Add to Wish List. To view just click the three horizontal line icon on the right (quick links) and select Wish List. Track on Wish list will appear. to delete click Edit button, click select checkbox, click Delete.
