Download Apple iTunes 10.5.1 Final Available with iTunes Match
Even though iTunes 10.5.1 is now available to the general population with iTunes Match, Apple still labels the service as a beta, most likely as a precautionary measure until everything is ironed out.
“If you want the benefits of iTunes in the Cloud for music you haven’t purchased from iTunes, iTunes Match is the perfect solution,” says the Mac maker. “It’s built right into the iTunes app on your Mac or PC and the Music app on your iOS devices. And it lets you store your entire collection, including music you’ve imported from CDs or purchased somewhere other than iTunes. For just $24.99 a year.”
“iTunes determines which songs in your collection are available in the iTunes Store,” the Cupertino giant explains. “Any music with a match is automatically added to iCloud. Since there are more than 20 million songs in the iTunes Store, most of your music is probably already in iCloud. All you have to upload is what iTunes can’t match.”
As for the entire “iTunes in the Cloud” service, it syncs all the music, apps, and books you purchase automatically with all your devices. Customers can also opt to download only the stuff they want to just the devices they want.
iTunes 10.5.1 is a free software update for both Mac and Windows users who subscribe to iCloud.
· 200MB of available disk space
· Safari 4.0.3 or later
· 512MB of RAM; 1GB is required to play HD-quality videos
· Playing videos also requires at least 16MB of video RAM

iTunes 10.5.1 is now available and addresses the following:
· Impact: A man-in-the-middle attacker may offer software that appears to originate from Apple
· Description: iTunes periodically checks for software updates using an HTTP request to Apple. This request may cause iTunes to indicate that an update is available. If Apple Software Update for Windows is not installed, clicking the Download iTunes button may open the URL from the HTTP response in the user's default browser. This issue has been mitigated by using a secured connection when checking for available updates. For OS X systems, the user's default browser is not used because Apple Software Update is included with OS X, however this change adds additional defense-in-depth.
