Apple Updates iTunes & Quicktime

Apple released updates to iTunes and QuickTime for both OS X and Windows. The updates are available through Apple Software Update or as standalone downloads.

The iTunes 7.5 update contains:

…the ability to activate iPhone wherever service is offered and support for Phase, a new interactive music game designed exclusively for iPod nano (third generation), iPod classic, and iPod (fifth generation). This release also includes bug fixes to improve stability and performance.

No details on those bug fixes, you didn’t expect any did you?

If you don’t want it through software update there’s a 41.1 MB download for OS X and a 51.8MB download for Windows. These are full app downloads, the “update” link brings you to the main iTunes download page.

The QuickTime 7.3 update contains:

– critical security updates
– Updated support for creating iPhone-compatible web content
– Updated JavaScript support in the QuickTime Web Plug-in
– Numerous bug fixes
– Support for iTunes

If you don’t want to use software update visit the download page and take your pick of four downloads, one for Windows and three for OS X (Panther, Tiger, Leopard).

Both updates installed just fine on my Macs, a reboot was required due to the QuickTime update. The Windows update is about 20MB while the OS X updates range from 49 to 53MB. So fire up software update.
