    Why does my 5S work with iTunes running 10.7 but the 6S Plus needs to be ran with 10.10?

    Thanks.

    Give me a reason why you would like to use iTunes V10.7?

    It would be easier to use my 5S and 6S Plus on the same Os (10.7) machine. Hmmmmmmmmm...

    Are you running them both with the same version of iOS?

    Nope. Is this required?

    I'm going to go out on a limb here (and not do your research for you), and say the newer version of iOS needs a newer version of iTunes. Because iTunes gets updated to include functionality for the newer versions.

    But why does iTunes 12.2.2 require 10.8 to install? System requirements?

    That would be the logical assumption.

    How can I put OS X 10.8 and 10.11 on my 13" MBP?

    A suggestion... Be clear what product you're stating the version of. You talk about iTunes running 10.7, but you're actually (I think) speaking of OSX 10.7 vs 10.10 (but since you don't even say you're running a Mac, it's hard to tell). There is also a version of iTunes 10.7.


    As far as running multiple version of OSX on your mac, I have no idea. No use for that sh*t. Don't know why you'd want to. Just put the latest version on, and it should be backwards compatible. But since you (again) don't state which MacBook you have... They made more than a few models, I think.

    It's got to be some if the least clear posting I've ever seen.

    Looks like I'll use my MBA for my 6S Plus and my 13" MBP for my 5S.

    Why would you not update to the latest OS and iTunes versions and manage everything in one spot? I've never understood why people contort themselves to run old software.

    Edit: Sigs are optional clutter and many people choose not to display them.

    Reviewed OP's post history.. Wow.

    I guess so. It's a 2012 non-retina MBP. And to think OS Lion was the newest at one point. :)
