Microsoft Releases Windows Phone 7 Connector For Mac Update

On Tuesday, Microsoft pushed out an update for the Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac. Allowing users to sync music, movies, TV shows, and podcasts from iTunes to Windows Phone, sync photos and videos to and from iPhoto, browse media items stored on your device, and update your device, the connector is pretty much a must-have for Mac-owning Windows Phone users.

The changelog, as follows is exactly the same as it was for the 2.01 release. That being said, WPCentral notes that reliability and performance improvements were made under-the-hood:


  • Full sync and import support for Apple Aperture software
  • Drag and drop import of files from Browse Device
  • Ringtone transfer support (for phones running Windows Phone 7.5 or later)
  • Improved video conversion process with user configuration options
  • Support for Windows Phone Marketplace (for phones running Windows Phone 7.5 or later)
  • Localization support for 13 additional languages
  • Improvements to backup and restore operations
  • Improved configuration for podcast sync and photo import
  • Improved iTunes import support in certain languages
  • Improved metadata support for videos


  • Added additional error codes and help references for device update
  • Resolved connectivity issues with certain devices
  • Resolved album art display issues for certain devices
