I’m unable to download any new apps or put data onto my computer from my iPhone; because iTunes isn’t up to date. I’ve even tried going to the apple site & downloading it that way, but it just doesn’t give me the option to download the latest software. I currently have Software OS X Version 10.8.5. Please help 😩 I’m dying here. Your Mac may be experiencing a problem that Apple specifically releases a software update for.

Any ideas as to what might be the cause?
My Mac Wont Let Me Download Software Windows 7
