What’s new in iTunes 10.7 [u]
Wednesday’s iPhone 5 keynote address introduced a lot of new products that we won’t get to lay our hands on for weeks. Included therein is iTunes 11, but that long-awaited whole-number rewrite isn’t coming until October. In the meantime, Apple has released iTunes 10.7, which smoothes the way for iOS 6, iPhone 5, the 2012 iPod touch and more.

— iTunes 10.7 adds support for iOS 6 running on compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models

[u] Apple finally posted iTunes 10.7 security content information, listing quite literally scores of issues that have been patched and/or addressed in addition to the three headline vulnerabilities reproduced here:
— iTunes 10.7 for OS X: SHA1: 0ff7c404f87122f89d49ed6c411b3692f1016e0a
— iTunes 10.7 for Windows: SHA1: 499c39aad4a05c76286e3159f4e1e081dab8fe86
— iTunes 10.7 for Windows 64: SHA1: c632854371097edbf3d831f7f2d449297d9f988e
That said, I suspect significant additional information will be available in the security content update, so stay tuned. Boy, did that prediction come true in spades — iTunes 10.7 is an absolute must-have update.
iTunes 10.7 is also available for Windows 64. Lion and Mountain Lion users should check for this update in the Mac App Store (Apple menu > Software Update). Our Snow Leopard friends know what to do.
