If you didn?t know what happened yesterday, than you have missed out on a lot of things. The WWDC (World Wide Developer?s Conference) was held on June 11, 2012 and there were a lot of attendees for the event. Apple made many exciting announcements. The world?s first Retina MacBook Pro was revealed and Mountain Lion was announced for July. But the most prominent announcement was that of iOS 6 which has over 200 features.
The iOS 6 beta is available to the developers at this time of writing. The public would have to wait till fall for its release. The original iPad and iPod Touch 3G users have been left out from the update. But iOS 6 still supports iPhone 3GS, this should be an unexpected news for some users.
The latest news states iTunes has been updated to version 10.6.3 to add support for the latest iOS beta. The update seems like a maintenance release aimed at providing support to the new capabilities of iOS 6.
In addition to the iOS 6 support, the update also provides a few bug fixes:
- Addresses a problem where iTunes may become unresponsive when syncing an iPad (1st generation) that contains an iBooks textbook
- Fixes a problem where photos synced to a device may appear in an unexpected order
- Resolves an issue where iTunes may unexpectedly delete playlists created on a device
- Fixes issues where iTunes may unexpectedly delete apps on a device
- Improves overall performance and reliability
What?s interesting to note is that iTunes 10.6.3 has been made available to everyone. To update to iOS 6 beta, however, you need to be a registered iOS developer.
iOS developers require the latest version of iTunes if they want to update their device to OS 6 beta which was released at the start of the date. Let me make it clear. The iTunes upgrade is available for everyone but iOS 6 beta is only available for the developers.
Windows users can download the latest version of iTunes by heading over to the official iTunes page. Mac users can upgrade via Software Update from their computer menu.
