    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!

    Assuming ur old computer can't be OS-upgraded any further, ur SOL.

    Is a conspiracy man, when u go into a new dentist, u can't fix just one thing that's bothering you, they want to change your whole mouth! :rolleyes:

    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.
