Just a quick question, when for instance a software update is downloaded for say itunes or OSX etc does the old version automatically deletes itself or does it have to be deleted manually?

Many thanks in advance!

In general, yes. Very specifically, I believe the new update simply overwrites the old version, but the effect is the same.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
