    Default iTunes 10.5.3 Released for Mac and PC

    Today you can go download a new iTunes update for your Mac or Windows computer.

    iTunes 10.5.3 was released today with updates allowing you to sync interactive books to your iPad through iBooks. The books are now multitouch supported meaning that you can go through and highlight things, take notes, and much more. You can buy these books from either iTunes on your Mac or PC, or through iBooks 2 which was released today for iPad along with iBooks Author. No other major changes have been made. The GUI (graphical user interface) is the same as before.

    There are some requirements for downloading and installing iTunes 10.5.3 as noted by the iTunes change log.

    If you're on a Mac computer, you can go up to the  button and select, "Software Update..." to bring up the new iTunes update. Windows users can bring up the Start Menu and search for, "Apple Software Update" to bring up the new iTunes update. If you have trouble getting that to work then you can download it manually. You can download the new iTunes here. iTunes 10.5.3 has been deemed 'jailbreak safe'. You can download and install it if you are jailbroken and not have any problems.

    Are you going to be syncing multitouch iBooks with your iPad? Share in the comments.

    Wow that was unexpected, my wife's MacBook Air is already obsolete and no longer supported by iTunes. She got the 11" model that came out in Late 2010, with a C2D 1.4Ghz, we bought it last spring. Less than one year old !

    Then you can snag it from the Web site; I included a link in case some people's update systems didn't find it.

    Ummmm what? The reqiurements support all the way back to PPC G3. You just can't play HD videos through itunes. But VLC should play them just fine.
