Update: iTunes 8.2.1

iTunes

iTunes 8.2.1 has been released and though this minor update still has the same obfuscated “provides a number of important bug fixes…”, this time around one thing is clear: an additional “…and addresses an issue with verification of Apple devices” has cut short Palm’s effort to pull a fast one on Apple.

According to AppleInsider, the 8.2.1 update kills the Palm Pre’s ability to sync with iTunes. This comes after Apple’s warning last month saying they can’t guarantee that “newer versions of Apple’s iTunes software may no longer provide syncing functionality with non-Apple digital media players.” However, Palm has already advised Pre user of a fix: don’t update.

Kidding aside, one wonders what Palm’s next move will be. I hope it’s something aside from camouflaging the Pre as an iPod.

You can download iTunes 8.2.1 via Software Update utility or directly from Apple’s iTunes page. Download size lists it as 77.3MB, and 75MB for the 64-bit Windows version.

My Mac’s Software Update utility hasn’t found this update yet. Might opt for a manual download instead.
