As part of its slew of software updates yesterday, Apple released updated versions of its MobileMe Control Panel for Windows and iPhone Configuration Utility, as well as a new VoiceOver kit for the latest iPod shuffle and iPod nano models.

- MobileMe Control Panel for Windows updates the application to version 1.5.1 and is a required update for existing users to ensure compatibility with iTunes 9.1.

MobileMe Control Panel is required to manage iDisk settings and to sync contacts, calendars, and bookmarks on a Windows PC.

This update is required for Windows computers running iTunes 9.1.

The update weighs in at 2.39 MB.

- Apple's iPhone Configuration Utility is used in enterprise settings to allow system administrators to manage configuration profiles and applications, as well as for collecting information from device logs. The new iPhone Configuration Utility 2.2 is available for Mac OS X 10.6 (6.94 MB) and Windows (29.51 MB).

- Finally, Apple released version 1.3 of VoiceOver Kit for iPod, supporting the third-generation iPod shuffle and fifth-generation iPod nano. The update permits automatic downloading of updated pronunciations from iTunes 9.1. The update is not available for the iPhone 3GS and "Late 2009" iPod touch models, as those devices already carry the necessary VoiceOver support.
