The iTunes 11 has a completely new look. It will take you some time to get used to the redesigned interface. In this post, I’d like to walk you through the steps to create a new playlist in the new iTunes 11.
If you have a host of songs stored in your computer hard drive, you may also add them to iTunes library for sync with Apple devices like iPad, iPad mini, iPhone and iPod touch. The process is easy if the songs are DRM free. You just press the menu on the top left of iTunes and choose Add File to Library… to load local music files.

You can also choose New Smart Playlist… to create a new playlist for your preferences. In the following Smart Playlist window, you are allowed to set various conditions for your playlist. The iTunes will automatically generate a new playlist for you according to the settings and conditions.
