Apple Notifies Users of Upcoming iTunes Payment Security Update

According to an Apple email recently sent out to customers, an upcoming security update to payments on iTunes and the App Store will prevent iPhone, iPod, iPad, Apple TV and Mac owners running older software from changing their existing payment sources without updating to newer operating systems, 9to5Mac is reporting.


The security update, which will be rolled out on June 30th, will affect the following software versions:

  • iOS 4.3.5 or earlier (released in 2011)
  • macOS 10.8.5 or earlier (OS X Mountain Lion)
  • Apple TV Software 4.4.4 or earlier (on second and third gen boxes)

Apple has notified the customers that once the iTunes and App Store payments security update has been applied, they will need to access newer versions of each operating system to change which payment method is used to make purchases.

The Cupertino company started sending email to users running older software versions last night. More information is available at this link.
