os x 10.6.8 How can I download the current OS?

I am trying to set up my new iPhone 5s.. I get an error says I need to download the latest iTunes, 11.1.3, and I downloaded it. Says it needs OS X version 10.6.8 to run. I go to my software and it says it is the latest software, OS X version 10.5.8 and says it is the latest software

What do I do now?

    My imac does the same thing, It used to send me updates to download but hasn't for a very long time. When I press check for software update it says the same exact thing- yet I just purchased an ipodtouch and it says I need to upgrade my os.

    Looks like, snow leopard is the very least we need to have in order to progress forward to use all the newer items- at least thats my take and no I haven't purchased it yet because I don't know if my computer will even work with any of these upgrades- trying to read a bit more to see if I can download and not be banging my head against the wall that I did.

    Seemingly, if we don't update, I gather your iphone and my ipod are rendered useless when hooked up to our computers but may work via icloud only.
