    I'm preparing to upgrade my MBP to OS-X 10.11.5 and would like to know whether my iPhone4 will still connect via USB, work normally and sync with iTunes on my MBP after I do that (OS details in thread title). An ancillary question is - is iTunes automatically updated with the OS-X upgrade and if so, to what version and do I have two compatibility questions to be answered vs. one (e.g. with both OS-X and iTunes)?

    Many thanks in advance!

    I believe it should work. The problem is going the other way. What I mean by that is say you had a iPhone 6s and were trying to sync on an older MBP running OS X 10.6. Doesn't work there because iOS 9 requires a minimum of a Lion Mac to sync.

    My iPod touch 4th generation with iOS 6 syncs fine with the latest iTunes in 10.11.5
