    So I am running OS X 10.5.8 with iTunes 10, but with the iPhone 5s, I need to get iTunes 11 which only runs on OS X 10.6.8. Is there anyway I can avoid this?

    I think its worth getting 10.6.

    10.7 no, becuase you loose compatibility with legacy PPC apps.

    If you just dropped $200+ on an iPhone, I think you can afford another $30 to update your OS.

    I think its more likely his computer doesn't support the latest OSX not that he doesn't want to pay $30. In any case, no there is nothing you can do.

    If you really have a old mac maybe it is time to ugrade it, or you can always run itunes over windows!

    What say we will of Windows, but one can still run the latest iTunes over Windows XP, a 10 years old OS!

    Yes, like others said you can run windows with parallels on your mac and install the latest iTunes on that.
    Or buy a new mac.
