    Hi,

    Suddenly, i got a message that my iTunes copy is set to expire in 65 hours? Is this for real?

    I have two mac machines at my home, both got installed at the same time on the newer beta 5 version of iTunes. Why am i getting this message only on 1 machine and not the other?

    Also, is this expiry date linked to iOS Beta 5 expiry as well ??

    The version it shows is 10.5b48. Not very worried about iTunes, but surely worried about iOS expiry on my phone ...

    If you're not a developer just put 4.3.5 back on.

    Make sure your system time is set to the correct date OP.

    What's meant by correct date OP ? Yep, not a developer, so is reverting back to 4.3.5 the only viable option? Then i would do that tonight itself.

    Not a troll, just saying it's a beta and is still rough around the edges. Much easier just to wait a month or so for the full release on a device you depend on for everyday use.

    I was telling you to make sure the date on your computer is set to the correct date. OP means original poster.

    Reverting back to 4.3.5 won't change your iTunes situation only the iPhone.

    OMG, you might just be right; I have bootcamp Windows 7 installation and whenever i login to windows, it changes my date/time for the next boot.

    Normally i don't bother because apple auto udpates the datetime once its connected back the internet, i have feeling it might just not have happened this time either during the install or today morning when i'd opened itunes.

    need to go back home and check again if the date/time is correct or not...
    thanks, appreciate it.

    I checked the correct date and everything and still getting the expiration error.

    Just one question; I can uninstall and install the current version of iTunes from apple's website.

    But, what about my iOS device? Do I need to downgrade it to 4.3.5 as well ?
    spoke to my friend and his dev account expires june 2012...
    I do not sync iPhone with iTunes for any music anyways and all the apps, downloaded on the phone itself over the air.

    He is not getting the expiry message on his iTunes.

    Beta 5 isn't set to expire until August 18th (at the moment ... it can be changed by Apple, it was the 17th). It's not linked to the iTunes 10.5 betas.

    By the way, 10.5b60 is the current. Probably your issue.

    Update your iTunes version to the latest beta. You don't need a dev account you can get it from iModZone or google.

    It's illegal to be using Apple's betas if you're not a paying developer (it's called "piracy").

    Wrong.

    The software is not charged for, but the Developer fee is. If a Developer adds your UDID to his account, you can use the software for testing and debugging purposes.

    A developer on here kindly added my UDID so I could try out iOS 5 early, he took no fee for it, and the condition was that I beta test some apps of his should he require me to do so.

    Downloading Lion from a torrent site is piracy.

    Having a UDID registered with a legitimate developer and downloading the free iOS 5 beta, is not.

    my beta 5 has become very unstable past 2 days, not waking up from standby (coma). apps crashing to black screen then home screen, some apps crashing when loading, camera sending springboard into a relaunch, camera taking blacked out pictures.. its just a mess.

    My Beta 5 is just fine. So is the wife's S with Beta 5. No warnings. iTunes 10.5 Beta 5 is fine, so is Lion 10.7.2 with iCloud Beta 7.

    No errors, running great, no issues. Nobody I know with Beta5 has had any issues or warnings either.

    Calm down kid.

    Yes, they are supposed to. The OP is just wondering why its telling him it's expiring in 65 hours when the version of iTunes was only released last week.

    I'm 32 years old, so quit the patronising tone.

    Got it? Good.

    Probably because it is illegal...

    No it's not if you have paid for a dev account or have a registered UDID to do testing. It is illegal if you release details of the beta and new features.
