The users of the new OS X 10.9.3 no longer need to be worried, as Apple brings an update to the iTunes content management app, which fixes a critical bug.   

According to Apple Insider, the Cupertino company doesn’t only release iTunes 11.2.1 but also an update for the recently launched OS X Mavericks 10.9.3. In the previous, the specific operating system was found affected with such a bug that had concealed the ‘Users’ folder.

The problem can be fixed by typing the Routine terminal command-sudo chflags nohidden / Users. The issue can also be fixed temporarily by following another procedure. In this case, the users have to open a Finder window, choose the “Go” option, and select the “Go to Folder.” Then they have to type “Users” and select the “Go” option. The process ends with control-clicking the “/Users” folder and choosing the “Make Alias” option.

However, all the affected users are recommended to get the latest version of the iTunes App as soon as possible.
