iTunes 10.2.2

Send Article to a Friend

The changes may be minor in Apple’s release of iTunes 10.2.2, but they’re still welcome. The update addresses an issue when iTunes can become unresponsive when syncing an iPad, and a separate issue that could cause syncing photos with iOS devices to take longer than necessary. Also corrected is an issue with skipping video previews in the iTunes Store. (Free, 75.59 MB)

 

New for iOS 8: TextExpander 3 with custom keyboard.
Set up short abbreviations which expand to larger bits of text,
such as "Tx" for "TextExpander". With the new custom keyboard,
you can expand abbreviations in any app, including Safari and
Mail. <http://smle.us/tetouch3-tb>

The new Apple iTunes update is optimizing and re-synchronizing 7243 photos to my iPad. The other 3209 photos were in optimal form, presumably. This is better than the previous version of iTunes which would tell me there was not enough space on the iPad (untrue) and not wait for the optimizing to finish.

I can't download this update on my macbook-keeps saying error occurred & wants me to close Itunes, which wasn't open. Any ideas?
is another user logged in via FUS (Fast User Switching)?

If you are willing to use the terminal, open it up and type in

ps auxww | grep -i iTunes

If there is one listed, then type

sudo killall iTunes
