Earlier this week we reported that Apple had released iTunes 10.3. Well today I have been offered an update taking it to 10.3.1, but I can’t see what’s different from 10.3.

Apple Software Update reports it as 10.3! My existing version of iTunes says its 10.3.0.54. Rumour has it the update fixes a syncing bug, but Apple decided not to update their changelog!

So I am updating anyway…..

What’s new in iTunes 10.3

Introducing iTunes in the Cloud beta. The music you purchase in iTunes appears automatically on all your devices. You can also download your past iTunes purchases. Where you want, when you want.

• Automatic Downloads. Purchase music from any device or computer and automatically download a copy to your PC and iOS devices.
• Download Previous Purchases. Download your past music purchases again at no additional cost. Your purchases are available in the iTunes Store on your PC or in the iTunes app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Previous purchases may be unavailable if they are no longer on the iTunes Store.

iTunes 10.3 also adds Books to the iTunes Store, where you can discover and buy your favourite books on your computer and automatically download them to iBooks on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This version also allows you to use Automatic Downloads with apps and books or download previously purchased apps and books from your computer or iOS device.
