The newest update to iTunes, version 9.1, is now available, with the biggest change being...drumroll please...iPad support.

The most noticeable update is that the "Audiobooks" section in iTunes is now the "Books" section, which is obviously where Apple will begin releasing digital books that are optimized for the iPad.

Additionally, it tweaks the "Genius Mixes" feature of iTunes, which came out last September. This feature automatically creates playlists for users by analyzing their library and creating appropriate mixes based on 54 billion songs and 27 million music collections that it has collected in its database.

And the thing that everyone cares about the most: version 9.1 enables syncing between iTunes and the iPad. All music, video, books, and other digital content will be syncable between the two platforms.

The iPad comes out this Saturday at Apple Stores and Best Buys across the country.
