    With the latest update to the Apple website for the iPad the Downloads section seems to have disappeared. Maybe I just missed it but I can't seem to find it anymore. :eek:

    Yesterday, you could find downloads by going to Support, and then Communities. The Downloads button would appear then. Though, as pointed out above, the direct link still worked - at least yesterday.

    Just now (Saturday morning, Pacific Time) when you click on the Communities link, you will get a "Back Soon" message, and the page is all messed up. So .... my advice is wait a few days and let Apple sort out whatever it is they forgot to do yesterday.

    It's like Apple doesn't even want to know about OS X or downloads outside of the App Store. :rolleyes:

    Wow, they did make it hard(er) to find downloads. 3rd party downloads are almost hidden. Way to go Apple, build that wall higher...

    I think this will be big news on Monday...

    I first wrote about this in another thread.

    My theory is that Apple have something else planned for Mac software distribution, learning lessons from the App Store.

    Still, I think it's poor there isn't a link from the Mac OS X pages.
