Rumor #1 was true, now we wait for iTunes later today and iOS 4.2 on friday (still crossing my fingers for iOS to be released today, I can't wait for AirPlay).

What about the USB fixes? My phone works with old MBP over USB but not with the new 2010 models.

iOS updates (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch) get released in the AM (around 8-10am pst), but Mac OS updates get released around Noon-4pm pst.

Good, but I'll be nice and let all the "Gotta have it" people download it first and beta test it for me. ;)

*waits for the combo*

I only put a new hard drive in my Macbook Pro this morning (meaning I had to download the 10.6.4 combo earlier) now I have another 1gb download, hurrah! (I have two Macs, easier to download the combo for me, plus I'm only kidding, I love updates! ;) )

Combo Update please!

.. is it still a better idea to use the Combo instead of the control panel?
(previously the Combo's would have more recent drivers)
