Apple on Friday released a new update to
iSync, is data synchronization software for Mac OS X. The new version of iSync, v1.3, is ready for download from Apple’s Web site and also through the Software Update system preferences pane. It measures 6.4MB.
iSync provides Mac OS X users with the ability to synchronize the exchange of contact, calendar, To Do list information and Safari bookmarks between multiple Macs and compatible devices — including Palm OS-based PDAs, iSync-compatible mobile phones, and even iPods.
The new version of iSync now includes support for new cell phones made by Nokia and Sony Ericsson. The Web site lists Sony Ericsson’s P900 and P800 models, along with Nokia’s 3650, 7650 and N-Gage models as added in this new release, although the 3650, 7650 and P800 were added with the v1.2.1 release offered
earlier this month.
Apple also indicates that “stability improvements” have been made to iSync v1.3.
Users of iSync 1.3 must first install iCal v1.5.1 or later; the latest version of iCal can be downloaded
from Apple’s Web site. Bluetooth software should also be updated to v1.2.1 or later, and Palm Conduit v1.2 or later must also be installed, if you’ll be synchronizing data with a Palm OS-based PDA. More details are available on the Web page.
