Apple has released a new update for its media management and digital store – iTunes. The new iTunes 10.2 update focuses majorly on the compatibility of the software with iOS 4.3 update running devices. Following its media event to announce the iPad 2 and iOS 4.3 (as well as iMovie and GarageBand for iPad), Apple also released iTunes 10.2. This minor update adds support for syncing an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running the upcoming iOS 4.3 update.
Along with compatibility with the latest iOS, the iTunes 10.2 update includes improved home sharing, which means you’ll be able to play music and other iTunes content on other computers in your network and on any iOS device (running iOS 4.3) tied to the account. Unlike much Apple software, the latest version of iTunes still works with OSX 10.5 and PowerPC legacy CPUs going right back to the G4, but HD video playback will require a snappier Intel processor.
iTunes 10.2 also improves Home Sharing support. This will allow iOS 4.3 users to stream any song, movie, or TV show from a registered iTunes library to an iPhone or iPad. Through Home Sharing you can play multimedia content from iTunes library directly on your iDevice. You need the latest version of iTunes if you are looking to catch iOS 4.3 update on 11 March 2011.
