Does that mean that I have to upgrade my MacPro 1,1 to 10.8 Mavericks in order to sync my iPhone 4S?
I had to upgrade to 10.6 for iOS 7.
No. iTunes 11.4 requires OS X 10.6.8 or later. It has appeared in Software Update on my Snow Leopard machine.

Downloading this update broke iTunes for me and kept iTunes from recognizing my iOS devices. I got a System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBEthernetHost.kext error and so have multiple threads of people on the Apple Support boards using multiple OS.

Just don't upgrade your iPhone and you won't have to upgrade your computer

I just installed the update and the U2 album appeared for free as an iCloud download as soon as iTunes 11.4 opened.

If it is not appearing for you, make sure that your iTunes is set to "Show itunes in the Cloud purchases" under iTunes -> Preferences -> Store
