Hi, just trying to update software so I can use my new iphone 4, I downloaded itunes 10 but it says it cant be used with my current 10.4 OS and I need 10.5 or later - I keep trying software update on mac OS but it says i am up to date. Cant find anything on mac support can anyone explain (in beginners terms) how I can update this?

You need to buy OS X Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) to run iTunes 10

And, if yours is one of the older PPC Macs, then Leopard (10.5) is your only option as Snow Leopard is not compatible with those machines.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Thanks for your help. I am about to get a new mac in the next couple of weeks anyway so I guess there is no point buying Leopard for my old machine.

Bob, the OP mentioned that he's on a MacBook Pro. All MacBook Pros are Intel machines, so a $30 copy of Snow Leopard would have done the trick.

Ahh, i'm going blind as well as senile.

And chas is right. I have one of the first gen Core2Duo MBPs. An upgrade to Snow Leopard and a 7200 rpm drive and you'll have what will feel like a new machine.
