Apple Releases iTunes 10.3.1, Potentially Fixing iOS Device Syncing Bug [Updated]


Just a day after releasing iTunes 10.3 to support some early iCloud features such as automatic downloads and access to previously purchased content, Apple has already pushed out iTunes 10.3.1 via Software Update and the company's software downloads page.

The documentation accompanying the release merely offers the same information as found with the original iTunes 10.3 release, providing no word on exactly what is addressed in what is presumably a minor bug fix update.

A number of users in Apple's support forums and elsewhere have reported issues with syncing iOS devices under iTunes 10.3, with iTunes reporting an "unknown error (-50)" when attempting to sync. Consequently, it seems reasonable to speculate that the iTunes 10.3.1 update addresses this issue, although we have yet to receive confirmation from users.

Update: In a new support document, Apple confirms that iTunes 10.3.1 addresses the "unknown error (-50)" syncing issue experienced by some users under iTunes 10.3.

Looks like it's a very fat universal binary. it not only has Intel/PPC, but also Intel part is 32/64 bit. 32 bit for Leopard and Snow Leopard and 64 bit for Lion. That's at least what i think is going on here.


Is it just me, or does anyone else find it incredible that Apple is still supporting the last vestiges of PowerPC Macs running Leopard.

Now just hoping that Apple is still releasing 10.5 or whatever version have you as a Universal Binary that would support WiFi syncing with my original iPad :D.

Heres to another few years with the Power Mac G5 :p

I wish Apple would properly streamline iTunes on PC so that it was smaller and ran faster. It would certainly shut a lot of of the moaners up.

I just love the way Google handle updating its Chrome browser. I just updated Chrome. It was effortless and took less than a few seconds to reload all my tabs. iTunes on the other hand took a couple of minutes, and to be fair it was no bother. But it just seems like an archaic way to update software today. For the first time I'm sensing that Apple is becoming more like the Microsoft of old and Google is small and nimbly creative like Apple was in 1998.

The Evolution of iTunes 10.3.1

Steve:

"Can anyone tell me what iTunes 10.3 is supposed to do?”

Having received a satisfactory answer, he continues,

“So why the ******* doesn’t it do that?"

You know you can setup Mac OS X software update to check at specific times and when there are updates to download them in the background? They will be installed the next time you shut down or reboot your Mac. How is this not effortless?

If you give a damn about what is going on on your Mac you will remove Chrome and use Chromium which is using Sparkle to update. Chrome literally litters all over the Mac OS X and calls back all the time to the Hive for God knows what.

Google software update is the biggest malware i have seen.
