Apple today released iTunes 10.5 for both Windows and Mac users. The new version of iTunes contains a number of new features such as iTunes in the cloud which stores all of your music and TV purchases online and are accessible on your Mac/Windows/iOS devices any time you want them.
Another new feature is Wi-Fi Syncing which lets you sync your iOS device with iTunes whenever they are both connected to the same Wi-Fi network, a feature that many users have been hoping would get added for some time.
iTunes 10.5 is also required to update your iOS devices to iOS 5 which is set for release sometime tomorrow. iCloud is expected to go live either later today or tomorrow when Apple release updates to both Mac OS X and iOS. The full list of new features can be seen below:
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.
