CUPERTINO, California-May 1, 2001-Apple announced that it will release its second software update for Mac OS X today, which together with a simultaneously-released update to iTunes will add the ability to burn custom music CDs on Mac OS X. Both software updates will be released at noon today and will begin automatically notifying users and updating their copies of Mac OS X over the Internet during the coming week. Along with providing support for burning music CDs with CD-RW drives, the second software update to Mac OS X also features improvements in overall application stability and the latest version of the Internet file transfer service (ftpd). The update will be made available by automatic software update to all Mac OS X users for free. "As promised, CD burning is now available on Mac OS X," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "As you can see, we're improving Mac OS X on a regular basis by using our amazing Internet-based software update technology." iTunes for Mac OS X will now allow users to create custom music CDs and watch stunning full screen visualizations on their computer display. Available exclusively for the Mac, iTunes also lets users import songs to their hard drives from their favorite CDs and compress them into MP3s; organize their music using powerful searching, browsing and play list features; and tune into hundreds of Internet radio stations. Since its launch in January 2001, iTunes has been downloaded more than 2 million times.
