iTunes 10.2.2 Update Fixes iPad Syncing Snafu

iTunes has been updated to version 10.2.2 and includes a few minor bug fixes, one of which is an issue where iTunes may become unresponsive when syncing an iPad. It wouldn't have been so bad except that Apple insists on maintaining tight integration between its mobile products and iTunes software.

Version 10.2.2 also addresses a few other quirks, including:
  • Resolves an issue which may cause synching photos with iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to take longer than necessary
  • Fixes a problem where video previews on the iTunes Store may skip while playing
  • Addresses other issues that improve stability and performance
In short, the update is intended to make iTunes suck a little bit less (our words, not Apple's). In addition, the 10.2.2 update addresses memory corruption issues in the WebKit framework for Windows users that could enable a man-in-the-middle attack to occur while browsing the iTunes Store via iTunes on a PC.

You can grab the latest update by opening iTunes and clicking on Help > Check for Updates, or by downloading direct from Apple here.
