Apple released software updates for both iTunes and Apple TV on Thursday that address performance issues with the former and security issues with the latter.

iTunes 8.0.1 improves stability and performance, according to release notes accompanying the 58.5 MB download in OS X’s Software Update tool. Specifically, the update includes a fix for iTunes 8’s newly introduced Genius feature. Now when you create a Genius playlist, iTunes will continue to seamlessly play the current song. What’s more, iTunes 8.0.1 addresses problems that crop up when syncing Genius results to your iPod.
