iTunes 10.6.3 update brings iOS 6 compatibility
Amidst the deluge of product launches and announcements like the next generation MacBook Pro, Apple released the latest update to its iTunes media manager, though the new version is mostly tailored for developers with access to iOS 6.
While iTunes 10.6.3 only adds the ability to download the new iOS 6 beta, consumers can download the update directly from Apple's website. As of this writing, the software isn't being pushed out via Software Update, but that may soon change by the end of the day.
Besides the addition of iOS 6, no significant changes have been made to iTunes though some bug fixes have been addressed.
From the release notes:
iTunes 10.6.3 includes support for OS X Mountain Lion and addresses a number of important issues:
â¢ Addresses a problem where iTunes may become unresponsive when syncing an iPad (1st generation) that contains an iBooks textbook
â¢ Fixes a problem where photos synced to a device may appear in an unexpected order
â¢ Resolves an issue where iTunes may unexpectedly delete playlists created on a device
â¢ Fixes issues where iTunes may unexpectedly delete apps on a device
