Apple Finally Cripples iTunes Syncing For Pre


By Chris Scott Barr

Remember back when we found out that the Pre was able to sync with iTunes? I suspected that it wouldn’t be long until Apple put an end to that handy little feature. Well it took a good month and a half, but they’ve finally done it.

The latest iTunes update (8.2.1) mentions in the notes that it “addresses an issue with verification of Apple devices.” In case it wasn’t specific enough for you, it means that the Pre is no longer mistaken as an iPod. It was fun while it lasted guys, but if you want to keep using the two together, you probably shouldn’t update iTunes. Ever. Time to find something better to suit your music syncing needs.
