iTunes 8.2 Update Fixes Bugs, Prepares For iPhone 3.0

Windows/Mac OS X: Apple’s popular digital media player iTunes updated to version 8.2 today, most notably preparing iTunes to play nice with the upcoming release of the much-anticipated iPhone 3.0 operating system (you know, the one that’s finally adding copy-and-paste, MMS, and notes sync).
Apple doesn’t offer much in terms of a change log on this one, other than:

iTunes 8.2 now supports iPhone or iPod touch with the iPhone 3.0 Software Update. iTunes 8.2 also includes many accessibility improvements and bug fixes.

I wasn’t able to grab the update through the traditional Check for Updates dialog, but you can get the latest through the iTunes download page. [iTunes 8.2]


  • After installing the iTunes update, I did a check of “about iTunes” just to confirm the verson number, and instead of the normal screen showing the version number, I got the “jewelcase 1.8” window with a link to their web site – how strange is that – did this happen to anybody else?

  • Update 8.2 is very annoying. I usually use iTunes DJ, and now whenever I look at any of my playlists, it totally renews the songs in the DJ, which I don’t want to happen. I’m going to rummage around in the preferences to see if I can turn this off.

    And oh yes, dozens of songs were removed. I wouldn’t have known this if I hadn’t synced my iPod and it reloaded all of the songs…well at least I _hope_ it reloaded all of the songs.


  • after update I can’t open itune… tells me I don’t have permission or folder is locked. I have made sure every folder is shared and not locked, reloaded itunes and same issues – thanks APPLE.
    Nothing but problems with my MAC wish I had stayed with my PC now…..

  • well after updating iTunes version from 8.1 to 8.2,that is wat required for iPhone software 3.0 updtae. I connected my iPhone to iTunes 8.2 and click on software update for my iPhone but it doesn’t found any new updates for it…..
