Hi, I recently downloaded the newest version of iTunes (10.6.1) on my Mac and now it won't sync with my iPhon. A message appears saying I require MAC OS X version 10.6.8 or later. I currently have version OS X 10.5.8.


What do I do???


Please someone help me. I'm strressing out as I can't sync my iPhone and I use it for absolutely everything! And I'm a complete novice when it comes to anything technology-related.



MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    If you need the newest version of iTunes because (for instance) you have a new iPhone or iOS 6 device, then you will need to purchase and upgrade your OS X software; to Snow Leopard 10.6 and then patch to 10.6.8, or to a more recent release of OS X...  See this thread or this thread for some related details; for information on how to learn what hardware is supported by Snow Leopard 10.6, on how to order the DVD, etc.
