    Anyway to make iTunes and iPhoto run in 64-Bit mode in Snow Leopard.

    Snow Leopard, and the 64-bit versions of iTunes and iPhoto.

    or an app is or it isn't 64 bits. and they aren't and probably won't will be on snow leopard.

    iTunes will never be 64-bit unless Apple rewrites it using Cocoa.

    I'm actually surprised iTunes still isn't cocoa, considering how much Apple's been going on about it recently.

    I think I remember Phil Schiller saying something like "All major Mac applications will be in 64 bit."

    I don't know about you, but I consider iTunes and iPhoto to be major Mac apps.

    Sense Iphoto and Imovie have been rewriten in the past little while I bet Apple has a 64bit version on the self somewhere :rolleyes:, Itunes9 might be 64bit when ever it is released.

    Shipping iTunes not 64-bit would be a bit of a clanger. I'd imagine we'll find out more between now and September - be patient :)

    I remember we were all expecting iTunes 8 to be re-written in Cocoa.

    Hopefully they'll have it re-written in time for Snow Leopard's release - while iTunes doesn't hog memory or CPU much these days, it is notoriously slow with large libraries.

    iTunes comes in a 64-bit flavor for Windblows, so I imagine they have one for Leopard, especially snow Leopard. I thought most of Leopard was 64-bit anyway? So iLife and iTunes aren't 64-bit to begin with?

    We must remember that iLife is not part of snow leopard, so regardless of weather these apps are 64 Bit or not, Phil saying most Apps are now 64 Bit does not include iPhoto or iTunes.
