I upgraded my iPhone 4S to the iOS 6 and now I can't sync my phone to iTunes because I can't upgrade to iTunes 7 with my Mac OS X 10.5.8... anyone know a way around this?


iPhone 4S, Mac OS X (10.5.8), iOS 6, iTunes 7

    Do you mean iTunes 7 (which is very old) or iTunes 10.7 (just released, Intel only). Either way, you should be able to run iTunes 10.6.3 on your Mac and still sync your iPhone.

    Yes, I do mean iTunes 10.7. I tried to update to 10.6.3 but am unable to find a download.

    States need itunes 10.7 to link to new iphone 5.

    Itunes 10.7 needs MAC OSV 10/6.8

    I have same Mac OSX 10.5.8.

    Only way to upgrade to MAC OSX 10.6.8 to then get itunes 10.7 is to buy the snow leopard CD from Apple. Cant be downloaded.

    Annoying!

    Same problem. I just talked to someone at the apple store and she told me to that we have to upgrade to snow leopard then to lion and we should be ale to sync to iTunes then. She told me the only pace to find the disk was on ebay or amazon ($70 and up), but then you have to pay for lion as well. Is there a possibiliy that they are going to release something for the iPhone that will allow su to continue using iTunes without upgrading the system?

    I have just upgraded to iOS6, I am already on iTunes 10.6.3 but I can't see my phone any more either. I cant upgrade to iTunes 10.7 unless I want to buy a new Mac as I am on OSX 10.5.8 PPC. To be honest, I wouldn't mind if they had said before hand as I wouldn't have bothered installing iOS6. Well annoyed, thanks Apple!

    I downloaded the iTunes 10.6.3 version and all is solved: http://appldnld.apple.com/iTunes10/041-6244.20120611.BbHi8/iTunes10.6.3.dmg

     

    Thanks jruschme!

    Tdubway,

     

    You are an angel

     

    Last Friday 21st Sept, I upgraded my iPhone 3Gs to iOS 6 via Wi-Fi. I left the phone to do it over night. When I woke, I remembered that uprading will not allow my 3Gs to sync with my G5 PowerPC mac

    I was running iTunes 10.6.0 at the time. I tried sycing anyway. Got the message that my iphone 3Gs will not sync, and that I need to download itunes 10.7.0. Of course 10.7 does not run on PowerPC's

     

    I tried everything —  except erasing the phone. I thought about erasing the phone though, in the hope that I could restore from the last back-up before I upgraded the phone. However, I though twice, because I knew that, if I erased the phone and it did not work, then I would loose everything on the phone. This happened to me before when I was running OSX 10.4, when iTunes 10.5/10.6 was not supported on Power PCs running OSX 10.4.

     

    I searched the whole internet for days. Then today, I stumbled upon this, and All_about_dragons & your posts

    To be honest, I did not even know there was an iTunes 10.6.3!

    So, I just downloaded and installed it and — volla! My iPhone running iOS 6, sync'ed to my PowerPC Mac, running OSX 10.5.8, like a new born baby to its mothers breast(s); there it is suckling away now

     

    I'm so so chuffed. At one point I was even considering just leaving the iPhone all together after this little iOS 6 stunt from apple, and getting a Samsung Galaxyy S3. I was told the Galaxy S3 has software called "Kies," which is used to sync the S3 and which is just like iTunes. I was gearing up to order an S3 — however, when I went to the Kies (Samsung) website to check the software out, I discovered that the Kies software also has a minimum installation requirement, being yup, an intel powered Mac. , so did not go there as it would have been a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire.

     

    For those who where like me, using a PowerPC Mac, but have upgraded their iphone to iOS 6 and can't sync; download Itunes 10.6.3 from here. dont ask me how, but, IT JUST WORKS!

     

    Thanks Tdubway,

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!  Soooo frustrated that Apple didn't warn us iPhone 4S owners that upgrading to iOS 6.0 would require an iTunes and Mac OS X upgrade.   This saved me today.
