The update brings a slew of enhancements, some of which are listed below:

  • Visual organization of applications. You can arrange your home screens and move apps around via iTunes
  • App Manage
  • Twitter/Facebook social networking integration
  • Send songs (as gifts) to friends via Social Networks
  • “iTunes LP” – Digital Album interactive content (videos, liner notes, credits and other customized content)
  • Pre-cut Ringtones, $1.29 each, 30,000 available at launch
  • Genius Mixes (Genius DJ puts songs together)
  • Genius DJ
  • Improved syncing. Sync a particular playlist, but also sync everything by a certain artist or everything in a genre.
  • Improve Sync
  • In photos (Mac), you can sync albums with events.
  • New “home-sharing” in iTunes lets you copy songs, movies and TV shows among your five iTunes authorized computers. Now you can drag songs from other libraries into your library.
  • Home Sharing
  • Redesigned iTunes store for cleaner, easier navigation
  • iTunes Extras (extra DVD content)
  • Overall polish of menu lists and icon items, as they look very shiny, nice and refined

The update is available on Apple’s website, the Apple Software Update tool or through Mac System Update.

Jailbreakers and Unlockers should probably avoid the update to iTunes 9 until further notice.

    About time you can move icons around through iTunes, sad it took this long. I still really hate iTunes though that will never change I'm sure

    I just synced a jailbroken 3gs with I tunes 9 and at first when I connected the phone some error poped up . I disconnected the phone and connected again and it was fine, synced without a problem. I think I got the error cause I have five rows and now I can't find the option to arrange my apps in iTunes.

  • Updated to Itunes 9 with a 3GS jailbroken ,, ver 3.01 , no problems so far .. backups look a lot quicker ..

    Does anyone know why you can't purchase applications from the app store with an itunes gift card? I thought the last update of itunes was supposed to change that?

  • It has to do with cdn law. Giftcards and related items cannot purchase
    apps.

    It's in the ToU. you can also email Apple for more info
