iTunes 10 available to download

Sep 1, 2010 - 29 Comments

itunes 10 download iTunes 10 has been announced and will be available to download starting today via Software Update. Featuring a fancy new icon that finally ditches the CD, iTunes 10 also has a more attractive album management system and a built in social network.

iTunes 10 Ping

Perhaps the most interesting feature of iTunes 10 is Ping, the new social music discovery network from Apple. Built directly into the iTunes app, Ping allows iTunes users to follow artists and other users, get concert listings, discuss music, share your music preferences, and more. With 160 million existing iTunes users and the ability to access Ping on your Mac, PC, iPhone, and iPod Touch, Ping is looking to quickly dominate the social music scene. Ping’s feed looks a lot like Facebook and I’d expect a way to cross-publish between the two shortly. Ping will only be accessible via iTunes 10.

    I can’t download iTunes 10 yet but one of my friends says its available in Software Update for him. I wonder if they intentionally staggered downloads or if its a fluke?

      Apple has announced that iTunes 10 will be available for all to download today through Software Update, their website, or iTunes.

      If you do not see the update yet it will become available to you later today.

  2. al says:

    I can’t download it yet either. Guess we have to be patient!

  3. [...] choose to just download the update or download and install the update. Presumably you will need iTunes 10 before everyone else can download and install the iOS 4.1 [...]

  4. Drunky says:

    This was a nice piece of filler. EVENTUALLY iTunes will be available via update. But from the time this was posted until now (1605 PST) this is bogus.

    Sheesh, stop blogging filler like this. iTunes is NOT AVAILABLE yet.

    And knowing Apple, ‘today’ will be 23:59 Cupertino time before iTunes 10 is available.

  5. Gary says:

    It was up and now it’s back down, looks like the iTunes download server is having problems.

    The “direct” link you see on Twitter being passed around is not real and does not go to iTunes 10, it gets a mystery RAR file and should not be installed. Download directly from Apple only!

    I can download my itunes 10.0 but it won’t install. Any ideas? In the meantime, it quit syncing with my iphone.

  16. Jack says:

    After downloading iTunes 10 a lot of my songs were doubled or tripled, big problem.

  17. Teresa says:

    Whenever I try to install iTunes 10, the Installation bar fills about halfway and just stopps. It doesn’t keep going, and it doesn’t allow me to exit out/cancel the installation. I’ve tried several times. Can anyone help me with this? Please?

    • Manish says:

      I would recommend giving it time to install, sometimes installations take longer than you’d expect.

      You can also try uninstalling the existing iTunes app before reinstalling another one. This is good advice for Mac and Windows users alike.

    Teresa, did you figure this out in the end as i’m having the same problem.
    Have left it for hours and no progess. Have tried it several times and it freezes at different points each time. I’ve got a new laptop (on win 7) so I’ve never had itunes on the system to cause problems.

    Any help appreciated.

  19. Chris says:

  22. Jessica says:

    When i try to download iTunes+QuickTime it says “The installation did not complete successfully. iTunes requires QuickTime.” So then i try to download QuickTime. Its says “Another installation is in progress. You must complete that installation before continuing this one. But nothing else is running. Also when i try to put in my mom’s credit card numbers and stuff for itunes id it says to enter a valid security code. But i know that it’s right. Help! I just want to be able to use my ipod touch ! ://

    I downloaded from ITunes a song titled Glorious Day. It did not download successfully. I was charged and received a receipt showing I paid $ 1.29. I would like this song! Please help! You can give me a credit and I will try to purchase the song again!
