  • _Blind_Elephant BKRandy (@_Blind_Elephant) reported

    accept my fingerprint anymore and now the iphone says " Phone disabled please login in to itunes." So I get home and I have the worst news. my option is to reset the phone so here I am to tell you how you should always have backups... THE ******* WORST

  • sarahhbickerton Sarah Hendrica Bickerton (@sarahhbickerton) reported

    @AJFitzwater @mellopuffy Might see it on iTunes when it comes out. Or my BIL’s Plex server

  • tack129 tack129 (@tack129) reported

    Looking at it as a service. It's like iTunes in 2005 with an optional PS+ like subscription. It's not Netflix or Spotify. Looking at it as a traditional platform. Concept is interesting but I've seen it before with OnLive and PS Now and they were poorly executed.

  • Nightveil Knightveil (@Nightveil) reported

    @Lilulicious Also, a decent episode of @filmsack. It's in the archive feed, though, so it may not be accessible because Scott hasn't fixed the itunes:new-feed-url problem yet.

  • hsp_dr مردى تنها آشفته مويم (@hsp_dr) reported

    @_betoche_ Error -1 itunes

  • GentlemanRascal Andrew Lynch (@GentlemanRascal) reported

    @ScarilyCheerful @cgogolin Same here, for that reason. I know what transactions to expect via PayPal so if anything ever pops up that’s not good I can shut that down. I learned to do that after someone got into my iTunes account and charged me for an app that cost $995 and it hit my debit card.

  • Maigen Maigen Thomas (@Maigen) reported

    Dude, no. This is clearly a hardware issue. It won't let me wipe the OS and reinstall because it refuses to get out of recovery mode. When it's not plugged in and trying to connect to itunes, it's in an ... wait for it ... ENDLESS REBOOT CYCLE. I NEED A NEW ******* PHONE. 5/5

  • Maigen Maigen Thomas (@Maigen) reported

    I'm wildly frustrated with @Apple My iphone has decided to brick itself after an endless reboot cycle and two weeks of random and increasing restarts. I am trying to log into itunes on my work computer so I can attempt to spoof an app for an urgent issue. 1/

  • angelin1080p melody (@angelin1080p) reported

    my itunes is saying its a software or update issue which could possibly mean it isnt my fault this time and that mercury retrograde just wanted my ass bc im a mf merc gemini

  • esseastri M3G-4N (@esseastri) reported

    me: *sits down to finish rewrites on part one* me: *presses play on the soundtracks playlist on itunes* itunes: SACRIFICE by TREVOR MORRIS from DRAGON AGE INQUISITION me: UH HUH SURE OKAY THIS IS FINE

  • Thuncher Jennifer Thuncher (@Thuncher) reported

    @Eaglevista_Jeff Well, just got my sixth phone in two years so maybe for my next one. Apple is just so seamless with iTunes and iMovie and my Apple laptop. But with my BB I made way fewer errors while texting.

  • TheLocalYidiot JA-THFC (@TheLocalYidiot) reported

    @stevehotspurs It’s down to yous youngsters that ruined the music industry. Imagine if the youngsters of today started burning CD’s off of Spotify and iTunes, you wouldn’t hear the last of it

  • btifulnitemare 🧚🏽‍♀️Drea🧜🏽‍♀️ (@btifulnitemare) reported

    When you in the gym and knuck if you buck and wipe me down play back to back on ya iTunes and you way to damn turnt n forgot where tf you at n shit...couldn’t tell me shit

  • leemick73 Lee Micklewright (@leemick73) reported

    @McLarenF1 hi guys, the app is not working since the recent update on iOS iPhone. When you attempt to verify your email and device it opens ITunes!

  • mudzzzy hands you a rat (@mudzzzy) reported

    im srsly about to have a breakdown over this internet shit this LITERALLY wouldnt be an issue if i could tether transfer images onto my goddamn phone without stupid ******* itunes compressing them so much that theyre goddamn unusable

  • wileywiggins Wiley Wiggins (@wileywiggins) reported

    @jasperbyrne I had an incident when they first premiered the service that made me dump iTunes and Apple Music and run everything from Plex from then-on and I never looked back.

  • zoopodcast Zoo Podcast (@zoopodcast) reported

    @AvocaTotoroTV Hey, so you aren't missing episodes, that's an issue with the way itunes lists things. THanks for point it out, i'll get it fixed. Nessie's Girl comes right after Campfire Stories.

  • daviswarren Davis Warren (@daviswarren) reported

    I'm amazed at how terrible @iTunes is on desktop

  • simplestill Rachel (@simplestill) reported

    @TheRuocchio No need for You to apologize! If I were wholly desperate I'd turn to iTunes or Google play but audible is my drug of choice 😂 I am confident that this is entirely Their problem, and it will get fixed when it's fixed! <3

  • jasperbyrne jasper aka sonic (@jasperbyrne) reported

    things that don't work: audio (totally broken), USB-C (drives randomly eject), itunes (lost all music), spotlight (fails 90% of the time), mail (loses accounts), keyboard / tb / trackpad (awful), macOS (freezes / resets), notes (corrupted), quick look (takes 30s), notifications.

  • chancehensley6 chance (@chancehensley6) reported

    @ian_morgan13 @ispoofercom Worked 1st time for me ... always.. update iTunes. Impactor was last updated 2018 so that's not the problem..

  • sunlinds Lindsey Parke (@sunlinds) reported from Tamarac, Florida

    @linkedin has the absolute worst customer service, not to mention they are literally taking my money. I keep telling them I cancelled premium a long time ago and they KEEP CHARGING ME and blaming apple. It shows up on my statement as LinkedIn, NOT ITUNES.

  • jasperbyrne jasper aka sonic (@jasperbyrne) reported

    @TrialByFun i have a backup of the library. i copy it over, run itunes again, see the songs for half a second and it immediately deletes everthing, file goes down from 6mb to 59k, all songs disappear

  • sunlinds Lindsey Parke (@sunlinds) reported from North Lauderdale, Florida

    @LinkedInHelp last time I called about this problem I was told it was Apple’s fault but then Apple said no it was LinkedIn’s fault. On my bank statement it shows LinkedIn, NOT ITUNES! For crying out loud STOP charging me!

  • naazuraa skwnfk (@naazuraa) reported

    Ugh this iTunes problem is killing me istg 😭😭

  • HippyHawking Hippy Hawking (@HippyHawking) reported

    Face App’s laughing at us like ALWAYS READ THE TERMS OF SERVICE, this ain’t iTunes!!! Can’t just accept and think everything’s peachy! 😂😂😂

  • sofierimler Sofie Rimler (@sofierimler) reported

    could be productive on the subway if I had service, but instead I listen to my downloaded songs from 2006 on iTunes

    @RieksMikael How do I down load from iTunes on my phone Where can I look it up on phone to watch it

  • Chideriffic Mina (@Chideriffic) reported

    @CollinMeSask I have 16 GB I didnt want to go down to 8 on updates alone Also had to connect to iTunes on my computer which I didnt want to do because I had to download it

  • sdpate Stephen Pate (@sdpate) reported from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

    @apple service has an Achilles Heel since the products don’t meet marketing expectations eg. Apple has silently abandoned loyal customers who rely on MFI hearing aids, iTunes app and iTunes iCloud Match. Stuff just doesn’t work and @AppleSupport can’t help

  • woodall_ethan Ethan Woodall (@woodall_ethan) reported

    @MOJO_jo1017 Apple Music and iTunes are separate. Probably contract and agreement issues between both parties for compensation.

  • Stephguerrero1 Stephanie Guerrero (@Stephguerrero1) reported

    I’m upset because @iTunes charged me for an app that I didn’t purchase and when I tried calling to dispute the charge the customer service rep was being so rude and unprofessional and didn’t help me with my problem at all

  • Vonteiku Kevo @ Con Recovery (@Vonteiku) reported

    @WesHilliard my iphone randomly restarted and it is currently stuck on the apple logo. I tried connecting to itunes but I have a lock on my account that sends a code to my phone to access my info...you see the issue here

  • RamiMasri84 Rami Masri (@RamiMasri84) reported

    @cz_binance honestly mate, can binance app be stable and work for longer than a few days without having to uninstall it and reinstalling due to trust issues on an iOS device. Just make a proper app and stick it in the iTunes Store.

  • sunnyright Orange Muppet Energy (@sunnyright) reported

    They should release it on iTunes. It’s actually not terrible

  • blakereid Blake Reid🤦🏻‍♂️ (@blakereid) reported

    I've experienced similar+related problems—e.g., sound dropping out on iTunes streams. Finally tracked it to a glitch in Comcast's efforts to inject data use notifications, which causes problems with encrypted / non-web traffic that in turn cause another glitch on Comcast's end.

  • PostMark Mister (@PostMark) reported

    @scrawfish @audonamission I’ve definitely started opting to buy more physical media as a result of this. I wonder what will happen if one of the big boys like Disney pulls their titles from say iTunes in an effort to get subscribers for their streaming service.

  • canadianfrost Brenda (@canadianfrost) reported

    @iTunes Rented a movie from iTunes and it said the download would take 14 hours. I went to YouTube and rented same movie and it was available right away. Finished watching the YouTube and the iTunes is STILL downloading. Terrible. Won’t be renting from iTunes again anytime soon.

  • Boltzmann_ibile Governor (@Boltzmann_ibile) reported

    @Epdulltukur @_xhaka_25 I swear, dis issue is rampant unless you want to use itunes card. I joined a Apple Music family created by a friend for music streaming tho. So we pay for d subscription in turns

  • Adevilla23 ɑɞɞʏ dɛ ѵıʟʟɑ 🥀 (@Adevilla23) reported

    Kinda sad that there will be a possibility that I won’t be able to get Leroy song because of my paypal/iTunes card not working 😩

  • Epdulltukur Tukur Abdallah (@Epdulltukur) reported

    @Boltzmann_ibile @_xhaka_25 I myself I have the same issue,I still can’t register my access bank card on my iTunes don’t know why! Thank God I am not the only one facing this trouble

  • agcntpoindexter Emily | Dexray Enthusiast 🎯 (@agcntpoindexter) reported

    @marianlthorpe I feel I got a new iPad in March after having an Ipad 2 for 8 years...took some getting used to using the new IOS. Feel free to Dm me if you are having problems I may be able to help although my phone is android I do use iTunes.

  • WriteOnMyHeart Chrissy, no Teigen. (@WriteOnMyHeart) reported

    @AppleSupport im trying to add music from my computer to my iTunes library and for some reason it’s not working

  • RODC_100 Shine | Dream | Smile - Dawn🐰🐥🎶 (@RODC_100) reported

    @loves_busan I would say Support them when you can but Stan BTS. I honestly have no time to Stan another group either so my support comes down to buying some of their music on iTunes. It’s the best I can do.

  • Nicole1515 Nicole Lauren, Esq. (@Nicole1515) reported

    Talk about screwing w/what wasn't broken. All that happened is what's happened to us endless times over w/music: We had vinyl albums, then we repurchased same music over & over again on cassette, CD, MP3s, iPods. iTunes, Amazon Music, & now we buy vinyl again - you get the point.

  • Natasha25552704 Natasha Thompson (@Natasha25552704) reported

    @PoetCalloway @captain_january @Eddie_Drood @EntertainMeLTD @amazon @iTunes @GooglePlay @Xbox Looks terrible doesn't it lol Utterly cringeworthy!

  • wywort wyatt (@wywort) reported

    @BitLifeApp Don’t know if anyone’s had this problem but I bought the full version of the app on itunes like a month ago and for some reason, it’s now showing the game as if I hadn’t— including the option to purchase again.

  • nikkidraps Nikki D (@nikkidraps) reported

    Uh oh! It looks like I’m still in big trouble, but it seems that in my time of peril I forgot that I took my website down. Oopsie! You can still check out my music on iTunes and Spotify. Anyway it seems as if my doom draws near. Perhaps I can still escape. Support local artists!

  • AmethystWeiss 𝑨𝒎𝒚 𝑾𝒆𝒊𝒔𝒔 🦇Vancouver (@AmethystWeiss) reported

    For the doubters of the effects of #Mercury Retrograde: So far in the past wk... - Issues w/ phone apps - Issues w/ iTunes - Was very late to an important appointment yesterday.Assumed I knew where it was,but turned out got lost & confused! + other things too personal to post

  • ___MIZANI Ginger McKenna (@___MIZANI) reported

    😭yo I remember I bought that album on iTunes too a couple of years ago... then when they took it down it disappeared so basically Apple owe me $10

  • TheKanehB Mimi J (@TheKanehB) reported

    @BankScrewedUs @BankofAmerica @iTunes @PayPal No and @PayPal gives me error when I try to disconnect the checking act. Bc its an act debit it’s the worst to try to cancel
