Apple has pushed forward the latest iTunes update (iTunes 10.5) the day before iCloud and iOS 5 are due to arrive.
We tried to update through iTunes, and were told that our version was up-to-date, so if that doesn’t work, you may have to update through the Apple menu. (Apple menu > Software update).
The download is about 61mb and brings the features that prepare iTunes for iCloud and iOS 5.
What’s new in iTunes 10.5
- iTunes in the Cloud. iTunes now stores your music and TV purchases in iCloud and makes them available on your devices anywhere, any time, at no additional cost.
- Automatic Downloads. Purchase music from any device or computer and automatically download a copy to your Mac and iOS devices.
- Download Previous Purchases. Download your past music, TV, app, and book purchases again, at no additional cost. Previous purchases may be unavailable if they are no longer on the iTunes Store.
- Sync with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 5.
- Wi-Fi Syncing. Automatically sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iTunes any time they’re both on the same Wi-Fi network.

A day earlier than we expected for iTunes 10.5, but it just makes us look forward to iOS 5 even more so than before.
