Apple today released iTunes 10.6.3, the latest version of its digital media management software. According to the release notes, version 10.6.3 includes support for OS X Mountain Lion and addresses a number of issues, including a problem where iTunes may become unresponsive when syncing a first-generation iPad that contains an iBooks textbook, an issue where photos synced to a device appear in an unexpected order, a problem where iTunes may unexpectedly delete playlists created on a device, a problem where iTunes may unexpectedly delete apps on a device; it also improves overall performance and reliability, and is required for the newly released iOS 6 beta. iTunes 10.6.3 is available now as a free download from or via Apple’s Software Update utility.

Really?  I’ve tried for almost the last 24 hours.  Keeps showing that I’m up to date on iTunes.

RIDICULOUS.  My photos all synced FINE in the previous version.  Now many of them sync in some crazy random order!!  APPLE, COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmmm…this is interesting. I haven’t had a problem with syncing until this update. Now all I get is “Unable to sync, sync failed to start.” Neither my iPhone nor my iPad2 works with this version of iTunes.

I’m having the same problem.  I can no longer sync iPhone or iPad and I can’t download 10.6.3.  It is saying I am up to date.  I go directly to Apple’s website and download 10.6.3 there.  When I check the running version on my computer it is still showing 10.6.1. I’m at a loss at this point.
