Next Version of iTunes Restores Local Contact and Calendar Syncing

ituneslogo.jpgApple today seeded a new version of 10.9.3 to employees (via 9to5Mac), but more importantly, the company also launched a new version of iTunes 11.1.6 beta which includes an important syncing feature that has been missing since the launch of Mavericks.

iTunes 11.1.6 “restores the ability to sync contacts and calendar information to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch from your Mac running OS X 10.9.3.”

Multiple users have been unhappy with their inability to sync contacts and calendar information to their iOS devices using their Macs. When iOS 7 and Mavericks were introduced, the ability was removed by Apple in favor of cloud syncing.

Apple’s Support Communities has a 212 page thread on the issue, and MacRumors has received multiple complaints since Mavericks was released.
