  • Mr. Mac

    Are you logged in with a Canadian account? I’m still not getting any iTunes updates though I have run the Yosemite 10.10.4 update.

  • josh

    itunes isn’t updated, he just means he was able to update to iOS 8.4 through iTunes

  • skydivertak

    The OTA bricked my phone, anyone else? Trying a direct download to update now….

  • Spiridus

    Ya, Canadian account and I updated through iTunes 12.1 but it took forever since iTunes downloaded the entire iOS at 2.2 gigs but it was worth it. NOW…if only Apple would push iTunes 12.2 so I can listen on the PC!!!!!!! Grr!

  • Cheaper than the US, technically! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • biggy1000

    This morning I downloaded the update for itunes I set it up on my desktop.

    I checked my phone again and realized it was also working on it. If you are still checking this.
