    I'm currently running the iTunes 10.5 beta, as I downloaded the ios 5 gm a week or so earlier than general release. When I went to install the new firmware update for Lion today, after restarting and installing my macbook pro I went to open iTunes and a window pooped up saying 'This version of iTunes will expire in 97 hours'...:eek:

    has anyone else had this issue? is it due to it still being the beta version? most importantly, will I lose all my music/apps/backups??

    It looks like it is the Beta Version.

    Open iTunes > Click iTunes in the top left > Click About.

    If the build number has a 'B' after it then its a beta copy.

    You will need to go to here to download a non-beta copy.

    Yes update to a non-beta release. Why is that so difficult to understand.

    awesome, thanks. Have been checking the Software Updates regularly to see if I could update it that way, hadn't thought getting it direct from apple would be necessary as it seemed to be working ok. all working now, cheers!
