The iTunes for Windows update is part of multiple other updates to cross-platform apps Apple is pushing out this week. The update offers behind-the-scenes changes for users including security and performance improvements. The app also adds support for new iPads including the Apple M2-equipped iPad Pro, iPad Mini, and the 10th Gen iPad.
iPad Pro owners will need to update iTunes to be able to use the software on the new tablets with the Windows software, including transferring files, music, photos, etc., and to back up the device. Users can download the latest edition of iTunes for Windows from the Microsoft Store or from Apple directly.
Apple updated the entry-level iPad to the 10th generation, bringing a revamped design with slimmer bezels, and a thinner design. The display is now a larger 10.9-inch IPS LCD display with 500 nits brightness. It also now comes with a USB-C port for charging, but still supports the Lightning-port supported Apple Pencil Gen 1. The iPad 10th Gen runs on the Apple A14 Bionic chipset with a 6-core CPU and 4-core GPU along with a 16-core Neural Engine.
The 10th Gen iPad is available in Silver, Blue, Pink, and Yellow in 64GB and 256GB variants, along with Wi-Fi only and 5G models.
