How to Update iTunes

What many of us fail to realize is that as far as little machines like an iPod is concerned, maintenance is the key. Luckily, iPods don't require that much maintenance as long as the device's software and iTunes are up to date, but problems do occur. To keep your device in top condition, you need to carry out routine maintenance. With just a few clicks, you can set up iTunes to carry out some maintenance work. Let's take a look at how to keep iTunes up to date.

Updating iTunes on Windows OS

It makes sense to ensure that your iTunes software is current. Of course, keeping the software current ensures that you have the latest features, but it also makes sure you get the latest bug fixes, too. One problem is that many of us don't have the time to check to see that the iTunes is current. There is a solution. You can set iTunes to update itself automatically.

  • Open iTunes on your computer
  • Choose Edit, Preference
  • Click on the General tab
  • Now select the check box that corresponds to 'new software updates automatically'
  • Click Ok to close the dialog box.
That is it. Your iTunes is now set to check for updates automatically. When it finds an update, simply accept to download and install it.

Alternatively, for some reasons you may decide to check for updates manually. In that case, all you need to do is choose Help, and go to Check for Updates. If there is an update, a window will display asking you to download and install the update.

Updating iTunes on Mac OS X

The procedure is somewhat different if you have a Mac. You can simply set up your Mac OS X to update iTunes each time an update is available same way you get an update for Windows live messenger if you are using a Windows operating system.

  • Go to System Preference application
  • Click on Software Update icon
  • Now, select the check for updates check box. Choose the frequency for Mac OSX to check for updates. You can set it to weekly.
  • Select the Download updates automatically check box.
That is it. You should now be all set to get automatic updates on Mac OS X.
