Apple releases iTunes 10.6.3 update

Alongside new MacBooks, an iOS 6 preview, and a Mountain Lion ship date, Apple also issued a minor update to iTunes on Monday.

iTunes 10.6.3 (for some reason Apple skipped over 10.6.2 in its updating) offers a number of bug fixes:

  • Addresses a problem where iTunes may become unresponsive when syncing a first-generation iPad that contains an iBooks textbook
  • Fixes a problem where photos synced to a device may appear in an unexpected order
  • Resolves an issue where iTunes may unexpectedly delete playlists created on a device
  • Fixes issues where iTunes may unexpectedly delete apps on a device
  • Improves overall performance and reliability

iTunes 10.6.3 is also required for developers running the iOS 6 beta also released on Monday.

When this story was published, the iTunes update wasn’t showing up in Software Update, but is available on Apple’s iTunes download page.
