Apple Releases iSync 1.3 -- Hot on the heels of iSync 1.2.1's debut earlier this month, Apple has released iSync 1.3 for Mac OS X 10.2.5 and higher, adding the capability to synchronize data with new phones such as the Bluetooth-enabled Sony Ericsson P900 and T630, as well as the Nokia 3650 and N-Gage smart phones. The 5.5 MB update is available via Software Update or Apple's iSync Web page. Palm OS handheld device users must install the iSync 1.2 Palm Conduit separately (which hasn't changed since the release of iSync 1.21). It's an 892K download available via a link on the iSync download page. [GD]
