palm-pre-itunes1Last week, Apple openly admitted to updating its iTunes music management software with a patch that blocks Palm Pre phones that attempt to connect to and sync with iTunes by identifying themselves as Apple iPhones.

Palm today responded by updating the Pre’s software to work with iTunes yet again. Gossip blog AppleInsider has confirmed that the Pre works with the latest version of Tunes.

“As we’ve said before, newer versions of Apple’s iTunes software may no longer provide syncing functionality with unsupported digital media players,” Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris told reporters last week. Palm head of PR Lynn Fox, whom Palm poached from Apple in early 2008, responded at the time, “People will have options.”
