Software update fixes MacBook Air-iTunes issue
Products mentioned in this article
Owners of last year’s MacBook Air models who’ve been running into problems with iTunes got some relief Wednesday in the form of an Apple software update. The catchily-named Mac OS X v10.6.7 Supplemental Update for 13” MacBook Air (Late 2010)—or “update” for short—tackles an issue where Apple’s ultra-thin laptop became unresponsive when using iTunes.
According to an Apple support forum discussion, the problem first cropped up after this month’s Mac OS X 10.6.7 update. iTunes would crash on launch after some 13-inch MacBook Air owners installed the updated operating system. (The problem didn’t affect all MacBook Air owners, according to Macworld Bugs & Fixes columnist Ted Landau, who uses a 13-inch MacBook Air and never ran into the issue.)
Apple recommends the 461KB update for anyone who’s got a 13-inch MacBook Air model from late 2010 that runs Mac OS X 10.6.7.
