∞ Apple releases iTunes 10.5

Apple on Tuesday released iTunes 10.5, an update widely expected prior to Wednesday’s introduction of iOS 5. iTunes 10.5 is available for download from Apple’s Web site and through the Software Update system preference.

According to Apple, changes to iTunes 10.5 include:

  • iTunes in the Cloud. iTunes now stores your music and TV purchases in iCloud and makes them available on your devices anywhere, any time, at no additional cost.
  • Automatic Downloads. Purchase music from any device or computer and automatically download a copy to your Mac and iOS devices.
  • Download Previous Purchases. Download your past music, TV, app, and book purchases again, at no additional cost. Previous purchases may be unavailable if they are no longer on the iTunes Store.
  • Sync with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 5.
  • Wi-Fi Syncing. Automatically sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iTunes any time they’re both on the same Wi-Fi network.
