Apple has released iSync 1.0, its application for synchronizing address books and calendars with Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, PDAs, and the iPod.

Previously available only as iSync 1.0 Beta, iSync 1.0 is now available for download.

Version 1.0 provides several enhancements, including automatic sync scheduling, performance and stability improvements, a menu bar icon, and faster syncing with Palm handhelds.

Apple's senior vice president of applications Sina Tamaddon told MacCentral: "Within just a few months, iCal and iSync have become desktop essentials for thousands of Mac users who want to better organize the personal information on their Mac with the devices they carry with them."

Apple's calendar application iCal has also been updated to 1.0.1. A number of performance and stability enhancements are included, and there is improved support for importing Entourage information.

Apple claims that more than one million copies of iCal have been distributed since its September 2002 launch.
