Apple has released significant updates to two of its most popular programs, iTunes and QuickTime.
Apple says that iTunes 7.5 features the ability to activate iPhone wherever service is offered and support for Phase, a new interactive music game designed exclusively for iPod nano (third generation), iPod classic, and iPod (fifth generation). This release also includes bug fixes to improve stability and performance.
Editor's note: Some users of iToner are reporting that syncing their iPhone with iTunes 7.5 causes their custom ringtones to disappear temporarily, but it appears that syncing the phone with iToner again solves the problem.
According to Apple, QuickTime 7.3 addresses critical security issues and delivers:
Support for iTunes 7.5
Updated support for creating iPhone-compatible web content
Numerous bug fixes
Versions of QuickTime 7.3 for Panther, Tiger, and Leopard are available.
Both updates are available from Apple's site or via Software Update.
