Apple has released an iTunes update today, which "provides a number of important bug fixes." iTunes 10.2.2 is available now and, in particular, delivers the following:
- Addresses an issue where iTunes may become unresponsive when syncing an iPad.
- Resolves an issue which may cause syncing photos with iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to take longer than necessary.
- Fixes a problem where video previews on the iTunes Store may skip while playing.
- Addresses other issues that improve stability and performance.
Shortly after the update was issued, MuscleNerd turned to Twitter to share the following: "iTunes 10.2.2 confirmed safe for JBers (DFU, saved SHSHs, syncing). Safe for ultrasn0w and recent IMEI unlockers too."
The iTunes update comes on the same day that Apple asked a federal judge to dismiss a consumer antitrust lawsuit that points the finger of blame at iTunes. The assertion is that Apple is unfairly limiting consumption opportunities for digital media by linking iPod music downloading to its iTunes music store.
Robert Mittelstaedt, an attorney for Apple, defended iTunes and the Cupertino tech giant by arguing that "blocking iPod music downloads that used competitors’ software was intended to improve downloading quality for iTunes customers."
Changes that Apple made in 2004, just days after Internet music software company RealNetworks Inc. announced a technology allowing songs from its online store to be played on iPods, weren’t anticompetitive, he said.
