  • Apple Releases iTunes 10.2.2


    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.
    “Apple’s view is that iPods work better when consumers use the iTunes jukebox rather than third party software that can cause corruption or other problems,” Mittelstaedt told U.S. District Judge James Ware at a San Jose, California hearing.

      Has an iTunes update ever been not safe for jailbreakers? I've been jailbroken since iPhone 3G and since then it's always been "safe for jailbreakers"

      iTunes 9.2 wasn't safe for jailbreakers using Spirit, the device was going to an infinite boot loop. iOS 4.0 required that version of iTunes, but PwnageTool and RedSn0w were working good.

      Back in the 2.X or 3 don't remember the right firmware, if you plug your iPhone (jailbroken of course) iTunes inmediatly brick it but that was a long time ago.

      always good to hear no problems with new itunes, glad they fixed the photo syncing. If you ever needed to sync your phone really quick, good luck.

      I think its funny how Apple push out these updates and label them as "Bug Fixes"

      I've been using iTunes for years and the only bug I've noticed is that iTunes sometimes forgets album art. Other than that I've never had any problems

      I just updated to 10.2.2 and now I can't connect to iTunes; I try to sign in and keep getting a timed out connection error. I tried checking the Apple Support site, but it's down as well.
