iTunes 12 blue icon

I'm not big fan of new icon for iTunes 12. Here is how to change it:


iTunes keep it's icon at


For iTunes 11 you can download here:

I checked this manual and app liteicon it worked for me.

But it also works if you just replace icon.

# download file
wget -O /private/tmp/iTunes.icns
cd /Applications/
# replace icons
sudo mv iTunes.icns iTunes_red.icns
sudo cp /private/tmp/iTunes.icns .
# drop cache
sudo touch /Applications/
sudo touch /Applications/
sudo find /private/var/folders/ -name -exec rm {} \;
# restart dock (may take few seconds)
killall Dock

I tested on os x 10.9.5, blue iTunes icon is from macmini having not updated iTunes

Thank you for link. It's almost same with manual I mentioned, paste image in "get info" window. For me it worked only if I open icon in and copy image (not a file)
