Apple released iTunes 10.4.1, bringing a handful of bug fixes to the company’s media management and syncing software and the bug fixes target a number of areas, including media keys on third-party keyboards, artwork addition, movie purchasing, responsiveness, and VoiceOver. ust like iTunes 10.4, the app fully embraces the 64-bit mode of OS X and this version is not compatible with iOS 5 beta, you will need to download iTunes 10.5 beta if you happen to be already using iOS 5 on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch……………
Apple released an update to iTunes that addresses a number of bugs that have cropped up in the program since the original 10.4 release and the latest release brought Lion-specific enhancements to the program, including full-screen capability, but early adopters of the latest version ran into a few problems with playback and the management of items in their media libraries. The iTunes 10.4.1 update released addresses some of these issues. The latest version of iTunes fixes the following problems:
- Fixes a problem where the media keys on some third-party keyboards work inconsistently withiTunes
- Addresses issues with adding artwork to songs and videos
- Resolves an issue which may cause iTunes to become unresponsive when purchasing an HD movie
- Fixes a problem where iTunes may take longer than expected to open after waking your Mac from sleep
- Addresses issues with VoiceOver support
The update should be available through Software Update as a 12MB download, but can also be downloaded through the iTunes 10.4.1 update page (around 77MB in size) and the update should not require a restart after installing. As always, be sure to fully back up your system before installing the update, though as a bug fix release with no major new features this update should go smoothly for most people and it is best to be safe and have a Time Machine or Clone backup that you can use to quickly restore your system if a problem with the update arises.
