Got to love the way some developers stick to their NDAs! Of course I realize this was an official press release:rolleyes:
I'm so tired of reading this comment in every post about betas.

You are on a website called macrumors.com that deals with rumors, leaks and pre-release info. I honestly cannot even comprehend why people come here to post comments like this, it's ridiculous.

I would like to see iTunes get back to music only. If you think about it iTunes, which was for music now runs all the iPhone and iPad apps. It's too much clutter.

I agree. Now defunct iSync would've been a good vehicle for managing mobile devices.

I am convinced that the reason Apple is taking so much time and being so careful with next iPhone/iOS update is they don't want a repeat of MobileMe, even if it means delaying the launch!
