Apple launches iPad-friendly iTunes 9.1
Just four days ahead of the iPad's first day of availability, iTunes has received an upgrade which adds sync for the new device. According to the software updater, the new version of iTunes lets users "Organize and sync books you've downloaded from iBooks on iPad or added to your iTunes library," and "Rename, rearrange, or remove Genius Mixes."
The icon under "Library" which formerly was called "Audiobooks" is now simply, "Books," and Genius mixes can now be re-named and moved. Otherwise, there is not much of an outward difference between 9 and 9.1
The new iTunes also brings a new version of VoiceOver for the iPod Shuffle and Nano. This is the feature which says artist names, song titles, and playlists with the Voiceover-equipped iPods with an earphone remote. With iTunes 9.1, there are several unspecified performance upgrades for VoiceOver, and pronunciation updates for the kit have become an automatic download.
