Apple returns Snow Leopard to Apple Store – Australian Macworld

Apple returns Snow Leopard to Apple Store - Australian Macworld


The software, which many Mac users discovered that they required
following their recent upgrade to iOS 6, costs $20.99.

Snow Leopard was pulled from Apple’s site after Mountain Lion was
launched earlier this year, however, following the launch of iOS 6 in
September it emerged that iOS 6 required iTunes 10.6, which required
Snow Leopard.

As we wrote at the time iOS 6 launched, users were finding that
having updated their iPhone or iPad to iOS 6 their device was rendered
incompatible with the version of iTunes they were running on their
Mac, and in some cases it was impossible to upgrade their Mac to a
version of iTunes that was compatible because they were running a OS
that predated Snow Leopard.

Purchasing a copy of Snow Leopard is the only option for owners of
older Macs that wish to update to the latest version of iTunes,
required since the iOS 6 update.

The return to the Apple Store suggests that Apple has been receiving
a significant number of pleas from owners of older Mac models.

Returning Snow Leopard to the Apple Store also gives users of newer
Macs that are still running Leopard (if there are any out there) the
opportunity to take advantage of the Mac App Store, without which they
will be unable to download any of the newer operating systems from
Apple.
