I run iTunes 11.4 on Mavericks. iTunes shows only the 8.0.2 update when I connect my iPad (3rd gen). Can anybody confirm my suspicion than 8.3 REQUIRES iTunes 12? I tried Yosemite and iTunes 12 and hated both passionately, so I'm not going above Tunes 11.4 even if I have to stay on 7.1.2 and Mavericks forever. I've been searching the web without success regarding this matter. Also, the iPad shows the 8.3 update but I don't want to update wirelessly if I cannot later connect to iTunes. I never sync but always tag and transfer all of my stuff manually, so not using iTunes on my Mac is not an option.
