Apple is readying iSync 1.5, an update to the company's synchronizing software, sources told Think Secret.
iSync 1.5 will reportedly add support for additional mobile devices; sources said the new version will synch information with newer phones from Motorola and Sony Ericsson. The improved phone support is believed to be the extent of the changes in iSync 1.5.
It's not clear when Apple plans to release iSync 1.5, but the company has already updated its iSync Feedback page to reflect the new version in a pull-down form menu.
Mac OS X 10.4, Tiger, will feature major changes to .Mac synchronization and will move many synch settings into individual apps. iSync will be renamed Sync Device Utility, and will be joined by Sync Manager, which will enable users to manage backups and set up .Mac Sync. More details and screenshots are available in a Think Secret report from last week.
The last iSync update was Version 1.4, which added synch support for a number of phones.
