iTunes 9 Disables Palm Pre Syncing

The latest version of iTunes, which was released yesterday, has blocked the Palm Pre from syncing with an iTunes library. The Pre, much to Apple’s consternation, was able to sync with iTunes by posing as an iPod within iTunes. In July, Apple attempted to stop the Pre from syncing in iTunes 8.2.1, but Palm was able to circumvent the patch by identifying itself as an iPod manufactured by Apple, according to PreCentral.

An update to the Pre’s operating system, webOS, was scheduled to be released on 8 September, but has since been delayed. This delay may be due to Palm anticipating the release of iTunes 9 and it is likely that Palm will find a way to circumvent this update before releasing the update.
