    I hope I don't get everyone into a tizzy here.

    I noticed something weird. So Im sure many of you know how iTunes looks for new updates it has a date set and if that day comes it sets it for one week ahead.

    Well mine has changed without me doing anything and it moved itself to an interesting date, which is the rumored date of the Snow Leopard coming out the 28th

    I uploaded a pic so you know it happened ;)

    Mine says it will check for an update 8/23/2009, but thats what it said last night. I believe they are all random. I think there was a thread like this before.

    It checks automatically once a week to see if a new version is available.

    It doesn't mean that 3.1 (or anything) is coming out on that date.

    And mine says the 22nd. I think it gets reset the last time that you click "check for update". *yawn*

    Ok I guess it was wishful thinking.

    Oh well a mod can close this up if needed.

    hahahhaaha. yeah it definitely is on a timed check for updates list.

    if you have software update checking for updates once a week, it doesn't mean that it will have an update every week.

    Maybe your right...

    I plugged in my iPod touch 2G and synced it, and I'm running 3.1 Beta 3, but iTunes will check for an update on the 28th too. I will try this with my Original iPhone later tonight or tomorrow morning

    The date your phone will check for new software does not mean anything. It's just a date that your particular installation of iTunes will check on its own to see if there's an update, in case one was released and you didn't manually do a check. This is mainly a built-in process for people who (believe it or not) don't visit forums like these and don't keep tabs of when the new software is coming out. But iTunes doesn't have any prior information from Apple about when 3.1 or any other piece of software, is coming out.

    "iTunes will automatically check for an update again on xx/xx/xxxx" line seems to confuse/excite too many people. Apple, ditch it? :rolleyes:

    I experienced the same thing with 3.0. Although when mine was available to update the GM was released that day so in a way I was right.

    yep

    most people don't notice the Date check until they are excited about a future update. somebody was bound to do it op. 1 or 2 week of Sept is still the best guess when they do the fall announcements.

    The date to check for updates has absolutely nothing to do with the release of updates and is different for everyone.

    ???

    Not the public release. It was when Apple released to developers.
