Apple releases iTunes 10.1 with iOS 4.2, AirPlay support


Apple has released iTunes 10.1, the latest version of its digital media management software. As expected, iTunes 10.1 brings with it compatibility with iPod touches, iPhones, and iPads running iOS 4.2, the ability to use AirPlay to stream videos from iTunes to the second-generation Apple TV, and a variety of other stability and performance improvements. Notably, there is no sign yet of iOS 4.2’s release, nor of the Apple TV or Remote app updates expected to arrive with the updated software. iTunes 10.1 is available now via Apple’s Software Update utility or as a direct download from

After updating, iTunes (or my firewall more accurately) asked me if it could accept incoming network connections. I don’t believe any prior version has done so. Any idea what’s new or why it needs increased privileges?

Over in Apple-land it seems like there are more reported problems with 10.1 than prior releases—be careful with this one, or wait for 10.1.1.

Kind of sad, with no announced release date for iOS 4.2, it looks like 10.1 was just thrown out there for purposes of mass scale testing before that day. People report the problems, Apple puts out 10.1.1 addressing them, and when most go and update for 4.2 when it comes out, ta-da, it will (mostly) work.

Since there’s nothing in the update I need yet, I’ll be waiting.

Wifisync will not work with 10.1!  Version 2.0 will be out in Dec. Wait to upgrade.
