It took a little while longer than we had anticipated, but Apple has now made iTunes 10.3 available to download. Here’s what’s new!

Tunes 10.3 is a 75MB download for Mac OS 10.5 and above, and introduces the following new features:

  • Automatic Downloads. Purchase music from any device or computer and automatically download a copy to your Mac and iOS devices.
  • Download Previous Purchases. Download your past music purchases again at no additional cost. Your purchases are available in the iTunes Store on your Mac or in the iTunes app on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Previous purchases may be unavailable if they are no longer on the iTunes Store.
  • iTunes 10.3 also adds Books to the iTunes Store, where you can discover and buy your favorite books on your computer and automatically download them to iBooks on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
  • This version also allows you to use Automatic Downloads with apps and books or download previously purchased apps and books from your computer or iOS device.

As far as we can tell, iTunes 10.3 is not quite available through Software Update yet. However, you can download it from the iTunes page on Apple’s website.
