New iTunes 12.1.3 Fixes Syncing Issue

Latest iTunes player – iTunes 12.1.3 – has been designed for older systems. Apple decided to release this as many users experienced syncing issue.

Apparently, if your iPhone / iPad is updated to iOS 9 firmware, then you cannot sync – photos, apps, music, document, etc. – after connecting to the iTunes player.

This problem was visible only on computers and laptops running operating systems older than Windows 7 – which is Windows XP and Vista.

Better iOS 9 Support

iTunes 12.1.3 offers support for iOS 9.0 firmware and is more reliable. It crashes less from what we hear and works on computers with low-end video cards.

So if you are using a really old laptop, or computer with those Intel Pentium chips running Windows XP or Vista, get the iTunes 12.1.3.
