    @SandraSigfusson You can access the iTunes/AppleTV store without the membership fee. The membership fee is access to their streaming service for shows/movies like Severance, For All Mankind, Home, Mosquito Coast, Palmer, Coda, etc. all the paid content is available on everywhere else too.

  • globot globot (@globot) reported

    @meiselasb I’ve missed it for 2 months. ITunes won’t let me download it anymore. At least a dozen different podcasts with the same problem. Apple can’t explain why.

  • ccatholichoe The **** of Monte Cristo (@ccatholichoe) reported

    Did anyone else write down by hand a copy of the playlists stephanie meyer had on her website (broken down for each chapter of every twilight book) to ask their parents to buy roughly $600 worth of songs on itunes or…?

  • xiaoaishiteru Crests 🦄 (slow reply era) (@xiaoaishiteru) reported

    Like it was already broken before I tried the iTunes Match thing which was part of why I tried but then that made it worse but I’ve been having so much trouble with the wifi on my laptop it’s been hard to get that set up properly and fix anything in the first place

  • wholiloleme venusian radiance. (@wholiloleme) reported

    wow at all these drake songs freefalling down the itunes charts like this.

  • heathborders Heath Borders (@heathborders) reported

    @ZachWeiner I ran into problems using itunes also. I think the issue is videos. If you avoid videos, you can grab all the photos by themselves and delete them off the device after. Then, you can grab one video at a time.

  • BrianVS i0s_tweak3r.etc (@BrianVS) reported

    @FCE365 Nevermind it looks like regardless it updates the firmware if recovering the password. A restore in iTunes can do the same. I haven’t tried it yet but I might have fallen in love at first sight with AnyFix; It looks like u may have fixes for a lot of my legacy device issues!

  • justforflexxx SANTAN👑 (@justforflexxx) reported

    @FlwSupport Please I just got the virtual card and I still can’t register it to my iTunes.. what’s the problem???

  • mracdnay MarcDany (He/Him) (@mracdnay) reported

    The movie is not available in the German iTunes Store 😕. In recent years, all this has never been an issue. Does the film come to Germany or Europe? @CrossFitGames

  • Bigwin7548269 Joon (@Bigwin7548269) reported

    I can't get out of bootloop just because my storage is full , tried updating software through itunes shows an error 1110 in other words no other choice but to restore it #iphone sucks how can I compromise my data for #iPhone's stupid glitch which they are even aware of

  • Meditatingjestr 88 Diagrams (@Meditatingjestr) reported

    Laced Edition is essentially the true version. The reason why there are two versions is due to sample issues and I just feel wrong utilizing certain samples in regard to services that actually pay me (itunes, spotify, etc).

  • CortinaAmalfi Dr_pepper_on_ice (@CortinaAmalfi) reported

    @iTunes @AppleSupport : you have a TERRIBLE system if I’m not allowed to play my purchased songs when my bank is having a meltdown. US*A bank has an hour long wait to get someone on the phone to rectify a false fraud alert. So until then, I can’t listen to any purchased songs??!!

  • computingadvice computerbot (@computingadvice) reported

    Pro-Tip: Never open a .app file with iTunes. Whew, glad that problem has been Solved!


    @baddiieebardii From the menu bar at the top of your computer screen or at the top of the iTunes window, choose Account > Sign In. Then click Create New Apple ID.

  • _brandonbaker 🌎✌🏾☮️🦦🍇 (@_brandonbaker) reported

    @breeesinterlude lol it’s actually called a playstation with a disc reader (I’m not THAT old 🤭) & iTunes is nostalgic af, I thought they shut that down?

  • KimVante96 KimVante⁷ ᴾʳᵒᵒᶠ 🃏 (@KimVante96) reported

    It's not even a week since the release..... #jhope_MORE went down to #2 on U.S iTunes already. Like seriously? Where are the 50,000 U.S/PR #BTSARMY who watched PTD On Stage?

  • _Quilliam_ 🪶✨Quil✨🪶 (@_Quilliam_) reported

    @HighRollersDnD I am very confused - on iTunes podcasts, it seems that both parts of the uploaded episode for 151 are both part 2, rather than part one and two. Don’t know if any other platforms had this issue - I put off listening until both are out and just got to part 2 🫣

  • Bigbarb36700118 Bigbarbie (@Bigbarb36700118) reported

    @CardiFreaking Y’all song is sliding down iTunes why are y’all worried about Nicki

  • TheeBaddieBey 🐝 (@TheeBaddieBey) reported

    Y'all are saying the lady who shut down Itunes and sold 1Million in 6 Days can't sell 500k first week?

  • twinsMom0702 Dahlia Jordan (@twinsMom0702) reported

    @isaiahthebody and this is why we drag Bg aka Barbie jr for pure filth. Y’all start junk buy can’t hang when folks get on y’all ssa including your fav. Cardi song is having trouble reaching the iTunes chart top 5 . Promote that instead. Y’all dumb

  • konrad_gnat 0xmaker.eth @ ETHNYC (@konrad_gnat) reported from Manhattan, New York

    The era of p2p file sharing died down, after the App Store, iTunes, + allowed to pay for music, movies and apps. But still there is a lot of friction here, you are locked into the centralized platforms, high fees, censorship, bad UX/UI, no innovation. There is a better way.

  • CWysmans Cindy Wysmans (@CWysmans) reported

    @StevieVanZandt So my cd's copied to computer & then transferred to iPod, no problem, but the additional music/audiobooks I bought on iTunes because book&cd shelves too full, gone? I'll be okay as long as my old iPod is working?

  • Bigbarb36700118 Bigbarbie (@Bigbarb36700118) reported

    @onikascrown They are tumbling down the iTunes Charts. I don’t ever wanna hear anything about barbz don’t buy

  • gateoftheabyss leo (-4!)🖤 (@gateoftheabyss) reported

    @harvestclerics ew WHAT??? i always just Got my refunds but these were just for jp itunes cards but idk…..that’s terrible customer service wtf…..

  • CortJstr Kyle McCowin (@CortJstr) reported

    @TroubledPod I'm not seeing this episode in iTunes or the RSS feed. Is the problem on my end or yours?

  • AKJones206 Allen K Jones 🇺🇸 (@AKJones206) reported

    @gCMG_Obv Early on, Apple settled out of court with Apple Records over trademark use. Apple agreed to stay out of the music business—which became an issue when they launched iTunes. But by then, Michael Jackson owned the Beatles record catalog, so it was moot.

  • theQueen_lawyer YallminiHer (@theQueen_lawyer) reported

    @chartdata They were laughing at a disney song blocking Nicki on a « HIGH » chart as H0T100 now a japanese song is blocking her from « imagine celebrating a num 1 on itunes in 2022 » and on Spotify 😭😭😭SHE TANKED so hard. *****’s hype train is dying down.

  • Jimmcnary Gin 🇺🇦 McNarnia (@Jimmcnary) reported

    @sondesix If you're setting up a new iPhone do you still have to plug your phone into broken old kludgy iTunes or does it seamlessly restore everything over the Internet

  • ncutlgx59 CutAnnisa☆チュタニサ (@ncutlgx59) reported

    @GabyLafara @Hendy_VandeWoes oh yea, it might be like that sorry.. i bought my iphone in akihabara 7 years ago, created japanese itunes and using it in my country until now, a bit risky tho.. but so far no problem also for another app (which is region locked and annoying 🥲)

  • Malefiquinn Ana ⎊ Ms. Marvel spoilers! (@Malefiquinn) reported

    @ChilluminatiPod @Audioboom Heeey guys, fyi the iTunes store link is broken or missing or something. I managed to download it on Podcast Adict but my pc feed (that is MusicBee, not iTunes, but somehow gets its pods from there???) can't subscribe!
