Apple Releases Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8

OS X 10.5.8

Apple has released Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8, the latest updates and security patches for it's desktop operating system, big brother to the iPhone's OS.

While some previous updates have contained new iPhone-specific features, we haven't seen any yet for 10.5.8, although some fixes will be of benefit to iPhone users on Mac. According to Apple Knowledge Base, these include:

  • Improves overall Bluetooth reliability with external devices, USB webcams and printers.
  • Improves iCal reliability with MobileMe Sync and CalDav.
  • Addresses data reliability issues with iDisk and MobileMe.

If anyone notices anything else, let us know in the comments!

The available hard drive space on my MBP increased a bit after the install from 99.08 GB free up to 99.34 GB.

I updated to OSX 10.5.8 and now my iTunes does not recognize my iphone. I get the following error message: " Itunes could not connect to this iPhone because of an unknown error occurred (0xE8000001)

applewhore says:

I just updated to 10.5.8 and now iTunes says:
"The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported.
Only compatible SIM cards from a supported carrier may be used to activate iPhone. Please insert the SIM card that came with your iPhone or visit a supported Carrier's store to receive a replacement SIM card."
Has Apple just pulled a sneaky trick and shut down jail broken handsets?
I paid £530 for this phone, but I need to be able to use it in the UK, the EU, the UAE and the Far East. They must be mad to think I'd either buy a new phone / contract for each area in which I work or pay the ridiculous roaming charges.
Bad start to my day. Grrrrrrrr...

applewhore says:

Hmmmm.... Further to my last post, I removed the SIM card, put in a different one, connected to my MBP and "Voila!" - all works again.
