iTunes Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • CraigGrannell Craig Grannell (@CraigGrannell) reported

    @egorka So iTunes would match, say, track one of a Björk album. But that was it. The service would then laboriously upload the rest of the album, which was nuts.

  • Fusion_Sid Siddhesh Zantye (@Fusion_Sid) reported

    Like when I download a youtube video, it downloads it then says error after. Or when i download a song for iTunes, iTunes spits it out but when I go to some random other YT converter the iTunes accepts it. I thought it was just me but i've tried on 4 devices now.

  • BigDoggFlexx 7-4 til tha world blow (@BigDoggFlexx) reported

    @SeanyMac_32 @meet_cleo Same! Yall have charged fraudulently charged me $30. When I go to download the app isn't on Google Play Store nor iTunes. I go online and it's saying there's no account under my ONLY email. So how was I charged then? So yall take my money and shut down?! I'm definitely disputing

    i can bring my ipod classic to work which is slightly cumbersome bc of my bluetooth adapter but still this is incredibly annoying idk why they left pc itunes in such a broken state before they pawned it off to microsoft which is a joke in and of itself

  • PerfectStormo Tim Norman's Sky (@PerfectStormo) reported

    Is it just me or is the "classic visualiser" in the Apple Music app for Mac completely broken now? It looks nothing like what the classic iTunes visualiser looks like and seems like it might be really glitchy?

  • hungryjoe8 Clegg (@hungryjoe8) reported

    Question: a while ago itunes did this weird thing where the stuff I added on my laptop (vinyl uploads, purchases, CD uploads) all duplicated, but other stuff hadn’t. Duplicates go away when I sign out, come back when sign in. Any clues how to fix this?

  • LoriJoanneQ Lori 🌻 Quick (she/her) (@LoriJoanneQ) reported

    @GraceBaldridge yep i'm an old person now, going back into iTunes to buy this because I love it. (have to download the store app I guess?) {i stopped using it because of digital storage capacity issues. womp womp. has anyone solved those? 😜 }

  • ItzBritneyWhore Blayde (Lou Taylor Minion) 🎃 (@ItzBritneyWhore) reported

    @kneestanorsmt I love how #that person looked up mood ring, like wasn’t he in that discord server where they literally did iTunes cards for it 😭

  • alenkafiga Upright Garfield (@alenkafiga) reported

  • _justinshaw Justin Shaw (@_justinshaw) reported

    @ednmnl @RealBrysonGray Apple Music is a different service than iTunes.. Music is a monthly streaming service and has its own rankings based on songs played not purchased.. iTunes ranks are based on individual purchases of songs

  • chloeanessa muñoz 🦋 (@chloeanessa) reported

    @ArmadilloShells MGM, ran down to the lobby to get service so i could buy it off itunes and listen to it in my room

  • shambambino Shamier Little (@shambambino) reported

    I’m glad I illegally downloaded music and was able to get it transferred to my iTunes when I did. The re released music is so watered down

  • kristenwayne kristen roberson (@kristenwayne) reported

    I have $100 on my iTunes from a gift card and it won’t let me purchase anything, saying my card got declined I’ve never had this problem before @Apple @AppleSupport

  • OTBRN1 Ahead Of The Curve (@OTBRN1) reported

    (2/8) It all started about 8 years ago when Amir Haleem (Co-founder of Napster, the single reason Apple created iTunes) wanted to make WIFI cheaper, and more efficient/secure. The only problem with that was that they didn’t have the funds to do so.

  • calexico65 JimC (@calexico65) reported

    I added the Simple Minds album, that has the unavailable songs, to my desktop iTunes which is linked to the Apple Music app on my phone. After the two synced I was able to download the album to the phone. Not a feature that any other streaming service provides I don't think.

  • lolswift1313 TM | Loving him was RED ❤️ | (@lolswift1313) reported

    @0zge13 Itunes sales dont really indicate cd sales.. I guess it really depends on how hard they are pushing now. CD sales are terrible nowadays tho without top tier artwork or variants it's hard to even sell 200k copies for big artists like her

  • ELRobinson8 EL Robinson (@ELRobinson8) reported

    @iTunes must really think we're stupid. BBB rap song cannot top Adele on the charts - that's rigged hands-down. Ain't no way.

  • mmmtraks Awrek mmmtraks (@mmmtraks) reported

    Lol so this iPhone 12 I have does not let me share my beats or music I put in my iTunes only the songs I buy will let me share android has no problem with that 😒is there a app I can use to do that on this new iPhone lol

  • FuckFaceKat **** Face Kat (@FuckFaceKat) reported

    @davidscottjaffe It's absolutely terrible... I've never used it and I never would or will. It's horrible when people make this **** roll down hill. It's like everyone gets these buzzwords and phrases downloaded into them like that U2 album for itunes -- if they wanted it or not.

    There’s really people out here getting scammed by an account with 3 followers speaking broken English saying they are me. Do you really think I spend my spare time making a second account of myself asking for iTunes gift cards? Are you kidding me.

  • PrerunnerPilot PrerunnerPilot (@PrerunnerPilot) reported

    America obviously hates Biden since 2 songs titled "Let’s Go Brandon" are No. 1 & No. 3 on iTunes on Monday. The two separate songs are both currently more popular than anything else Apple music service has to offer with the exception of No. 2, Adele’s "Easy On Me." #Truth

  • pirateherojones Ms.Couldn't Give A **** | Pip 🏴‍☠️🎸 (@pirateherojones) reported

    @ajewishpirate1 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Who knows! And this could be a completely wrong guess!! The other thought is it’s coming to a streaming service, since it’s no longer available on iTunes.
