June 16, 2010

In advance of the iPhone 4 release next Thursday and iOS 4.0’s coming out party this Friday, Apple’s moved two important updates. On my machine the combined size weighs in at 437MB.

It’s important to note that the 10.6.4 update includes Safari 5, so be aware of this if you’re thinking about updating. I haven’t run into any issues with Safari 5 yet, but you never know.

Here’s the nitty gritty from Apple

iTunes 9.2 comes with several new features and improvements, including:

• Sync with iPhone 4 to enjoy your favorite music, movies, TV shows, books and more on-the-go
