Apple on Thursday released iTunes 10.1.2, a stability and performance update for everyone’s favorite media-playing / iOS-device-syncing / app-shopping tool.

The company’s characteristically terse release notes say only that “iTunes 10.1.2 provides a number of important stability and performance improvements.”

However, the update’s “Read Before You Install iTunes“ document—which you only see if you download the new version from Apple’s iTunes site, and not when you download via Software Update—specifically mentions that 10.1.2 also adds support for syncing “with iPhone 4 (CDMA model).” The company’s CDMA iPhone will debut on Verizon on February 10.

The update requires Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or later.

Updated at 5:12 PT to clarify where Apple noted the CDMA iPhone compatibility.
