Meanwhile, iTunes 7.4 adds sync support for the new iPod nano (third generation), iPod classic, and iPod touch, and also users to create custom ringtones exclusively for iPhone with many of their favorite songs purchased from the iTunes Store.

Users of iTunes 7.4 can now also play purchased videos with closed captioning (when available), easily rate their favorite albums from one to five stars, and watch videos at a larger size inside the iTunes window.

Although support for custom iPhone ringtones is included in the new iTunes release, Apple said Wednesday that the creation service will not be activated until sometime next week.

iTunes 7.4 is available as a 48.1MB download for Macs and a 49MB download for Windows PCs.
