Even if iTunes belongs to rival company Apple, Windows users also download and use it to manage their song and movie collections. Now an important update has been released which fixes Outlook syncing problems.
Apple has made available a new version of iTunes for Windows users, which brings some much needed fixes that have been awaited for such a long while. What’s interesting to observe is that the update has been rolled out only for Windows users, which is something that you don’t see too often coming from Cupertino.
Anyway, the latest 12.1.1 version of iTunes brings fixes which are related to Outlook-device syncing, as well as an audio playback glitch. Windows users can update by either visiting the Updates section from the Updates tab within iTunes, or by going to Apple’s website and download the software completely. This is advised when you aren’t running iTunes yet. You need to have Windows Vista 64-bit or later, and have 400MB free space, if you are downloading it for the first time.
The most recent update for Windows users also improves compatibility with screen readers. So, now, with this update, you shouldn’t have anymore problems syncing contacts and calendars from Outlook to your iPhone or iPad.
Apple recently also released iTunes 12.1 for OS X Yosemite users, bringing a new Notification Center widget that gives users quick access to back, forward and pause buttons, as well as track info and iTunes Radio controls.
