  • BTW You Can Download iTunes 9 Now


    iTunes 9 hasn't made it into Software Update yet but you can still download it via the Apple site right here. If you are already jailbroken iTunes 9 doesn't appear to interfere with you at all. Not sure if it interferes with the jailbreak process yet however.

    Lots of new features. Read here and here for more details on the features. We'll get a full review up ASAP!
    • In-iTunes iPhone and iPod Touch App Management (yes!!!)
    • Improved Syncing Options
    • Genius App Recommendations (could be neat)
    • Genius Mixes
    • Share via Twitter and Facebook (for you social networkers)
    • iTunes LP Enhanced Album Content (snazzy toy)
    • DVD-style Movie Extras (snazzier toy)
    • New, Redesigned Store (sexy looking)

    Update: You should see iTunes 9 in Software Update now

      This is what Apple says:

      About iPhone Configuration Utility
      iPhone Configuration Utility lets you easily create, encrypt and install configuration
      profiles, track and install provisioning profiles and authorized applications, and capture
      device information including console logs. When you run the iPhone Configuration
      Utility installer, the utility is installed in /Applications/Utilities/ on Mac OS X, or in
      ProgramsiPhone Configuration Utility on Windows.
      i didnt get the iphone configuration utility installed on my mac. i looked for it and couldnt find it.

      still wondering.......does this have any effect on unlocked iphones-will it lock them back up or are we safe running 3.0 software with new itunes?

      I dunno if it's iTunes 9, but after I installed iTunes 9 and re-sync'd it with my ATT 3G[S] 3.0 FW (JB also with carrier hack) my MMS is working flawlessly now. I tried sending a MMS this morning and it failed, but now it's working.

      iTunes 9 looks great!! I can confirm it does NOT interfere with jailbroken/unlocked iphones. I can't wait for 3.1 jb/unlock!

      I want improved performance on PC's. iTunes runs like a grandma with shackles on on my Vista machine. I chalk that up mostly to Vista being a piece of crap... But anything Apple can do to improve performance would be great.

      At least until I can throw away my Vista machine and buy a mac.

      Seems to be just a bit of a facelift. Maybe I'll notice more after the jump to 3.1.

      I'm still having issues with my Info Sync time. Contacts, Calendar, Bookmarks, and Notes take about 20-30 minutes to sync to Outlook. Its really damn annoying. I hoped 9 would have this fixed.

      iTunes 9 blocks USB communication to your iphone from the "iphonebrower" types of programs. And the iphone config utility is for corporate usage. That way they can add some proprietary types apps and encrypted info or keep track of what goes on a company owned iphone.
