The dust has settled, everyone has cleared out of the Guggenheim in New York City, and we all know Apple’s education plans, which include an update to iBooks and new iBooks Author and iTunes U apps. Before we switch back to gossip about the next iPad or even the iPhone 5, let’s address the rest of today’s news, which includes the unfortunate (and unsurprising) bankruptcy of photo legend Kodak. Here’s the rest of the news for this Thursday, January 19, 2012.
It’s been a rousing Monday on the Apple scene, with Cupertino dropping a new iOS 5.1 beta (and faking out bloggers at the same time), pulling a fake driver’s license app from the App Store and updating iTunes -- all while getting news that the Apple TV is no mere hobby. Ready to find out more from those tantalizing tidbits? Then read on and get a blast of all the news from this Monday, December 12, 2011.
Despite the rumors of a Logic Pro X being nearly complete, Apple has today released a minor update to the existing Logic Pro 9 and MainStage 2.2 to the Mac App Store, thus ending an era of boxed software from Cupertino. The good news is you can now buy these pro music apps cheaper than ever before!
My Software Update (in the Apple menu) is no longer finding software updates. When I start up an iLife or iWork application, it tells me updates are available. If I try to manually download the updates from Apple’s website, it won’t install them because it says I don’t have the current version on my system. Is there a way to reset or fix this problem?
Originally announced for a late October release, iTunes Match is finally here, a couple of weeks late but no worse for the wear. The service requires iTunes 10.5.1, which went live on Monday and now allows users to “scan and match” their music library against iCloud for only $24.99 per year.
For most of us, OS X Lion’s first minor patch to 10.7.1 is old news after Apple pushed it out last week. The rest of you may have wondered if and when Apple would get around to updating the version posted on the Mac App Store -- but worry no more, Cupertino has taken care of that.
It seems a software publisher’s work is never done -- even after pushing out a slick 64-bit update to iTunes that support’s OS X Lion full-screen mode, bugs creep in that have to be dealt with, requiring more updates. Such is the case with Monday’s iTunes 10.4.1, which focuses on five such nagging issues.
