My new iphone5 will not sync to my Mac because my Mac does not have itunes 10.7.

I cannot install itunes 10.7 because I need 10.6.8 Mac OS..

but my Mac on 10.6.3 tells me it is up to date.  Anyone else seen this and if so know how is it solved?

    Try installing the OS X 10.6.8 Combo update.

     

    Download it from here:

    Thanks, I thought you were referring to Mac OS X 10.6.3.

     

    iPhone 5 requires iTunes 10.7, so you must upgrade OS X. Easy enough, as long as your Mac meets its requirements.

     

    To upgrade from OS X 10.5.8, you must first buy Snow Leopard by calling the phone number in the Apple Online Store: 800-MY-APPLE (in the US). Snow Leopard costs $20, or $30 for a five user license. Do not obtain Snow Leopard from any source other than Apple.


    Make sure your system meets Snow Leopard's requirements:

    Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" System Requirements

    To install Snow Leopard for the first time, you must have a Mac with:

    • An Intel processor
    • An internal or external DVD drive, or DVD or CD Sharing
    • At least 1 GB of memory (RAM) (additional RAM is recommended)
    • A built-in display or a display connected to an Apple-supplied video card supported by your computer
    • At least 5 GB of disk space available, or 7 GB of disk space if you install the developer tools

     

    After you install Snow Leopard you can decide if you want to upgrade OS X to the latest version, Mountain Lion. Mountain Lion is available in the Mac App Store, which is available to you after upgrading to Snow Leopard.
