As rumored, Apple has just released iTunes 10.5 ahead of tomorrow’s iOS 5 and iCloud launch.
The iTunes page currently says iTunes 10.5 coming soon, but when you click on the Free download link, it takes you to the download page where iTunes 10.5 is available for download.
Here’s the list of new features and improvements in iTunes 10.5 according to the release notes:
iTunes in the Cloud. iTunes now stores your music and TV purchases in iCloud and makes them available on your devices anywhere, any time, at no additional cost.
Automatic Downloads. Purchase music from any device or computer and automatically download a copy to your Mac and iOS devices.
Download Previous Purchases. Download your past music, TV, app, and book purchases again, at no additional cost. Previous purchases may be unavailable if they are no longer on the iTunes Store.
Sync with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 5.
Wi-Fi Syncing. Automatically sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iTunes any time they’re both on the same Wi-Fi network.
It is also not available via Software update. So go to the iTunes download page (this link) to download iTunes 10.5.
