Beware! Do not replace to iTunes 12.8.1 if you’re on OS X Yosemite 10.10.5
iTunes customers took to MacRumors Forums, Twitter, Reddit, and Stack Exchange not too long ago to report that upgrading to iTunes 12.8.1 model is breaking Safari 10.1.2, the most recent model of the browser for OS X Yosemite 10.10.5.
Users who up to date to iTunes 12.8.1 have been greeted with following error message when opening Safari on OS X Yosemite 10.10.5:
“Safari can’t be opened due to an issue.
Check with the developer to verify Safari works with this model of Mac OS X. You might should reinstall the applying. Be certain to put in any out there updates for the applying and Mac OS X.
One Stack Exchange consumer was of the opinion that the iTunes 12.8.1 replace is possible updating the MobileDevice.framework in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ to a model incompatible with Safari 10.1.2.
However, it now seems that Apple has pulled the iTunes 12.8.1 replace. Some customers have discovered a workaround to repair Safari. For that, it’s essential go the Finder app, click on on Go > Go to Folder… within the prime menu bar, typing in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ and drag MobileDevice.framework to the Trash.
