The fact that without a special program to transfer files from the iPad and iPhone to the computer and from the computer can not be known to every user of these gadgets. But not everyone knows how to update this iTunes. And there is nothing complicated about this, by the way.
Unfortunately, this much needed program takes up a lot of space on the hard drive of a personal computer, and even spends a lot of RAM at work. That's why many users and are thinking about why you need to update iTunes to the latest version. First, the updated interface is usually much simpler than in the older versions.

Mac and updates
First you need to run the program. In the Mac system, it is usually located in the working area at the bottom or side of the screen. The icon is similar to a note. Depending on the version, this is either a red, or a blue, or a multicolor icon. Usually, after launching, a prompt appears for installing the new version of the program. It's enough just to agree that iTunes should be updated in a matter of seconds. The Mac system is noteworthy in that it does not usually ask the user's opinion at all, promptly and independently installing new versions of Apple's programs. Provided that the owner of the personal computer has not disabled this useful option.
Windows and Apple software
Here too, there are no special difficulties. You must enable the program on your computer. If it is not fixed in the taskbar and there is no icon on the desktop, you need to go to "Start", "Programs", "All Programs". From the list, select iTunes. Update it is not difficult. If the "Apple Software Update" window does not appear right away, you need to go to the "Help" section in the upper left corner of the working panel. This concerns version 188.8.131.52, which is already quite outdated. In the section you need to find the "Update" button. The program will automatically start searching for available new versions. If they are available, the user will be prompted to install them. Of course, the person himself has the right to decide whether he needs it or not. However, it is worth remembering that a timely update allows the program to work without interruptions. But ignoring these simple rules can lead to the problems described above.
