Our long, national nightmare is over: Apple has squashed a server bug that was preventing iOS and Mac apps from applying updates correctly, and is pushing out updates from the last couple days all over again.
Tuesday, October 11 may not mean much when the real action is set to arrive tomorrow with iOS 5 and iCloud, but there are a few components that will need to be updated on your Mac before that magic arrives. One of them is an update to iTunes, which has just hit Apple’s website and is ready for your downloading pleasure.
Earlier this week, Apple silently released iTunes 10.3 with a system-wide software update. Riding on the coattails of the week's iOS 5 announcement, you might think you've heard everything there is to know about Apple's next big mobile operating system update. However, there are still more goodies to be found in iTunes 10.3 that Apple hasn’t yet told us about directly.
