10.7 to support new iPhones, iPods

While the redesigned iTunes won't launch until October of this year, Apple did today roll out a new version of iTunes, version 10.7. The update to iTunes brings compatibility with Apple's newly announced iPhone as well as its new line of iPods and the newest version of its mobile operating system, iOS 6.

Aside from compatibility with Apple's newly announced products, the update to 10.7 doesn't bring anything new in terms of functionality. October's update will see iTunes undergoing a major overhaul, with significant changes to the user interface, including an image-heavy grid layout that Apple says fosters easier navigation. The nest version of iTunes will also feature a great deal of iCloud integration.

iTunes 10.7 is available for Macs and PCs as a free upgrade at Apple's website. Mac users will need a Mac with an Intel Core processor and 512MB of RAM, Safari 4.0.3 or later, 400MB of available space, and OS X version 10.6.8 or later. Windows users will need a PC with a 1GHz Intel or AMD processor and 512MB of RAM, Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, and 250MB of available space.

    Hmmmm, supports 10+ year-old Windows OS. Only supports intel macs (so I guess PPC users need not be bothered with getting an iPhone, huh?)

    Actually, testudo, this is one thing I CAN agree with you on. I still use a PowerMac G5 (the last model before the Mac Pro) for my main machine, which I discovered- to my chagrin- won't run this update of iTunes. This has been my one and only beef with Apple lately- the forced obsolescence of hardware much earlier that they used to.

    Yes, "forced obsolescence" after nearly seven years ... it's criminal, that is! :lol:

    You cheapskates who live in your mom's basement are SO amusing ...

    "Much earlier than they used to" can only be referring to the late 80s to mid-90s, when you could run System 7.5.5 (from 1996/97) on a 1987 Mac SE.

    Yeah, Apple has really gone down the shitter recently…well, as recently as fifteen years ago.

    Their support cut-off has been five years, +/-, for about fifteen or twenty years now.

    I'm pretty sure that's only topped by Microsoft Windows XP, which was only supported for ten years because its successor completely flopped.
