iTunes 10.5 Released by Apple, Inc.

The lastest version of the iTunes program, version 10.5 has been released a day ahead of the impending iOS 5 release.  With all of the new product and software updates this week, it will be surprising if the Apple servers handle the load without some hiccups along the way.  The update is a required update for all those users looking to use iCloud when it is released.

According to the release notes included with the program, it includes the following changes:

  • iTunes in the Cloud. iTunes now stores your music and TV purchases in iCloud and makes them available on your devices anywhere, any time, at no additional cost.
  • Automatic Downloads. Purchase music from any device or computer and automatically download a copy to your Mac and iOS devices.
  • Download Previous Purchases. Download your past music, TV, app, and book purchases again, at no additional cost. Previous purchases may be unavailable if they are no longer on the iTunes Store.
  • Sync with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 5.
  • Wi-Fi Syncing. Automatically sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iTunes any time they’re both on the same Wi-Fi network.

The download is an 87.9mb download and may take some time for some folks, although our download was exteremely quick.  The complete breakdown of the release is available in the Apple security document at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1222.
