    Apple has today unveiled the revamped iTunes at the iPhone 5 launch, which features a redesigned player, complete iCloud integration and a new look. Launching in October, Apple says it will have a much cleaner and simpler interface that keeps your favourite iTunes content to the forefront. iCloud integration means that your music, movie and TV purchases made on any iOS device or computer will all be displayed in your iTunes library on your Mac or PC.

    Among other features, the MiniPlayer has also been reimagined, making it easier to control your music with a small tool bar, so that you can skip to the next song or search for new tunes, and all without having to open your library. Up Next is a new feature that enables you to see what’s up next, as well as letting you queue songs or albums that you want to hear next.

    The new iTunes will be available in October.

    Gosh, they just keep bumping up the system requirements, don't they?
    This update requires snow leopard or higher, leopard is completely cut off...
    Good thing I've got snow...

    Wait till next Wednesday when iOS 6 is released. It's designed to work with iTunes 10.7. You'll see the difference then.

    About time, I'd say. But I want to try it out and make sure it's not even worse, lol.

    I have three iPads, I think I'll update one of them and see how it goes before updating the other two.

    I worry that iCloud will wipe out my songs since I have two iPads if I sync them one at a time?

    As long as you give each iPad it's own unique name, there should be no problems with syncing two iPads on the same computer. I sync 3 iPads, an iPhone and an iPod on the same computer with no problems.
    To name your iPads go to Settings> General> About. The name selection area is in the top line. Touch the arrow at the right side and enter the name of your choice.

    I usually use my husband's iPad as the guinea pig, lol. He's got next to nothing on his, so he wouldn't miss much even if it were wiped.

    I updated mine this morning and all my files came through in-tact. I wasn't able to do it through iTunes but I was able to do it through the Apple site.

    You mean to 10.7, right? The next major update is in october. This recent one is to support for iOS 6, which is important too.
