Apple iTunes 10.1.1 Update Released

Apple has released a minor update to iTunes 10.1, fixing a number of bugs that could cause it to crash and enhancing synchronisation with iOS devices and AirPlay for streaming videos to Apple TV.

The company said that the iTunes 10.1.1 software update addresses a number of issues, including one where some music videos would not play on Macs running Nvidia GeForce 9400 or 9600 graphics cards and a problem that caused iTunes to force quite when a playlist was deleted.

Apart from the bug fixes, the software update brings AirPlay to iTunes 10.1, allowing users to instantly stream videos from iTunes to the new Apple TV and enhances synchronisation capabilities with iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch with iOS 4.2.

However, Apple Insider is reporting that the software update, which was meant to prevent iTunes from crashing, actually causes iTunes to crash following installation.

Some users are claiming that after they install the update they are greeted with the following Problem Report: "iTunes cannot be opened because of a problem. Check with the developer to make sure iTunes works with this version of Mac OS X. You may need to install any available updates for the application and Mac OS X."
