Apple releases iTunes 10.7 with support for iOS 6

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Ahead of a major overhaul to iTunes coming in late October, Apple on Wednesday released iTunes 10.7 with support for the soon-to-launch iOS 6.

iTunes 10.7 is now available to download from Apple's official website. It adds support for existing devices to be upgraded to iOS 6, and also supports the newly announced iPhone 5 and updated iPod touch and iPod nano.

Apple announced earlier Wednesday that iOS 6 will become publicly available next Wednesday, Sept. 19. It will be available for the iPHone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, new iPad, iPad 2, and fourth-generation iPod touch.

iTunes


iOS 6 will become available for existing devices two days before the new iPhone 5 is set to go on sale in the U.S. and a number of other markets.

Wednesday's 10.7 update of iTunes is just a stopgap before a more expansive overhaul is set to arrive later this year. The company also announced at Wednesday's iPhone 5 keynote that it will debut a "dramatically simpler" iTunes with a redesigned user interface at the end of October.

The new iTunes will feature a grid-driven interface that Apple says will make it easier for users to navigate. It will also have tighter integration with iCloud, including cloud-based, cross-device syncing of playback information on movies.

Said "Coming Soon", now it says "Free Download" but when I check for updates says 10.6.3 is the current version. Seems slow to propagate out.

It says it now, but when I check after reading the article it still said "Coming Soon" in blue.  The "Coming in October" version was/is below the 10.7 release in orange.

Thanks for pointing out that top-right "Download iTunes" gives one iTunes10.7.dmg . Unfortunately, iTunes 10.6.3 still states that it's the newest version (if I click on "check updates") and the Mac App Store shows nothing. weird performance.

 

EDIT: and now the apple.com/itunes changed to "download now". hmm.

Requires an Intel mac. :( I know I really need to upgrade, but my beloved PowerMac G5 is still working perfectly! :)

iTunes 10.7 is released today to support the new iOS hardware (new iPhone 5, new nano, new touch) announced today. The newer iTunes with interface changes is due later in late October, and a version # wasn't mentioned for that. I would assume it'll either be iTunes 10.7.1 or iTunes 10.8.

A completely redesigned version of iTunes… as an x.x.x update…

Strangely, Software Update isn't pulling it yet...noticed some of the iPhone5 info links in the Apple store weren't yet working earlier either, after the store re-opened.

Odd that they didn't have everything "just right", at the bell.

 

7 hours later you can download of course, but right below that button is still a little corner banner saying "Coming in October"...

just not tight this time around...

Still not in the App Store update list. Odd, but I expect it'll be available by tomorrow at the latest.

Maybe it's not supposed to be. This is the first iTunes update since Mountain Lion and iTunes was never in Software Update before that anyway, was it?

It always was. It was never a separate download. All apple apps are in software update (which is now lumped in to App Store updates.) OS X updates also show up in the App Store update list. iTunes should also be there.

Really? I don't remember it happening sometimes.

Weird thing is (additionally) is that now I'm getting this error when the App Store update list tries to refresh:

 

The operation couldn’t be completed. (NSURLErrorDomain error -1100.)

Have you been getting this just recently? I didn't get this message this morning, for example.

I just hope there is a checkbox or defaults write or some such to turn off all the Facebook "Likes"...  Yeesh!

Me three.

   Apple develops an improved programming language.  Google copied Java.  Everything you need to know, right there.

Still getting the error, but the App Store *is* showing new updates to some of my apps, except for iTunes. Interesting. 

 

Overloaded servers, possibly:

I have the error too.  It isn't overloaded servers.  They didn't crash for Mountain Lion or iOS5- it was just slow and bogged down.  I doubt iTunes 10.7 is an extremely anticipated release.  ;)

I am still running a PowerMac G5 as well! I planned on getting the iPhone 5 as my first iPhone but now I will have to wait! Hopefully they will release Retina iMacs soon. I wonder why they chose to make 10.7 Intel only instead of just waiting for the overhauled version of iTunes before making the jump to Intel only?

Why should an application hold back an entire OS?

I am sorry I don't understand the question. I assume by OS you are talking about iOS 6. Of course if Apple wanted to they could have supported both PowerPC version of iTunes 10.7 and therefore supported compatibility with iOS 6.

GOSH DANG IT APPLE. Having both your desktop OS and your music software hit the same version number at almost the same time… 

 

Never mind what I said before. lol.gif

Too bad they're not adding or fixing real functionality, like the totally stupid way iTunes handles changing the location of your iTunes library, the inability to custom sort albums that share a release year (it's always alpha by title), and of course the eternal lack of FLAC support.

Everything together. How stupid.

Not sure what you mean.


, and of course the eternal lack of FLAC support.

 

Forget FLAC. ALAC. Metadata. Not that hard to change your stuff.

Not sure what you mean.

Every other program I have that maintains a "library" or similar thing only requires you change the directory name to the new location of the library. Just move it, then change the prefix and you're done. iTunes reimports and copies hundreds of megabytes from old to new. That is indeed monumentally stupid. It wastes incredible amounts of time and requires you have double your library in available space if on the same disk. Not only that, it doesn't actually import everything. PDFs are ignored and must be manually added to your new library. Existing podcasts get severed from their feed. Videos lose metadata which must be readded manually. Basically, it doesn't result in the new being an exact copy of the old without many hours of manual intervention on top of the importation time

 

I don't see a Release Date field in iTunes Info pane, only a Year field, which can only be a 4-digit numeric value. You can't even enter "1999a" or somesuch. Not only that, the only option I'm given (upper left popup menu) for sorting albums is by "Year/Name", "Name", and "Year".

I have absolutely no idea why you wouldn't want everything in the same place. That just doesn't make sense to me.


Having said that, Menu Bar/iTunes/Preferences/Advanced, untick this.

 

 

Don't complain, then, when iTunes cannot play the media that continues to show up in the Library if you move or delete it.

That's because you didn't understand what I was saying. Let's say you have an iTunes library in /foo/bar. You want to relocate it to /foo/baz. In a sane world, you would just "mv /foo/bar /foo/baz" (or the equivalent in Finder), then point iTunes to /foo/baz. That's it, you're done. Instead, you must create /foo/baz, then import /foo/bar into it. That's beyond stupid. It gets even stupider when you consider that, as I said before, iTunes doesn't import everything.
