    Default Can't sync iPhone 4 iOS7 with iTunes


    I have a MacBook OS X version 10.5.8, which runs iTunes in 10.6.3. I recently upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS 7, after being prompted by Apple, only to realise that it won't now sync with my version of iTunes.
    When I check for software updates, I'm told that my computer can't upgrade and therefore neither can my iTunes. So it looks like I'm stuck with a MacBook OS X 10.5.8 and an iTunes 10.6.3, when I'd need itunes 11 which my machine won't support.
    I'm aware that my MacBook might be 'obsolete', although I purchased it 4 and 1/2 years ago and it works perfectly fine otherwise.

    Is there anything I can do apart from buying a new laptop - which I can't afford?

    Thanks for your help!

    What do you sync to your MacBook from your phone?
    If music, you could just use Dropbox or some other cloud service to store your music and play it from there.
    For photos, something similar should work.
    If it's for apps and backing up your phone, just use iCloud backup.
