  • humannaturexox for all time❥V (@humannaturexox) reported

    lol so my apple id is in apple recovery and I wont be able to log into it for 26 days.. After the time is up I then CAN sign in and back it up to Itunes. After that is done, I get a new phone yay

  • ara_p Ara (@ara_p) reported

    Maybe he's never spent an hour trying to figure out why Apple Music won't sync on his new iPad because there were no error messages, only to find that it was using outdated iTunes credentials (stored in iCloud?) which just needed him to log out and back in again.

    @TheEmilyDBaker Anybody IT savvy in the jury will know you can get 100 experts and they can come up with 100 opninions. Rott cut off JD expert yesterday when he got to iTunes discussion. Still down to the fact AH is clearly dodgy character, witnesses suspect, so this argument wouldn’t sway me.

  • kimhyjs cement bread (@kimhyjs) reported

    @brgndyves apple music is lthe streaming subscription service. in itunes yoou just buy the songs. even tho itune songs show up on apple music it only counts for itunes and not apple music

  • slurryinahurry Keeping the fart in with a 😷 (@slurryinahurry) reported

    Anybody else UK having issues paying in iTunes/music. All cards are being declined since macOS 12.4 update & keeps removing expiration dates and 3 digit code. @AppleSupport @MacRumors

  • steveriggins Steve Riggins (@steveriggins) reported

    I have zero trust in Music app on the Mac. It lost all of my iTunes Match music. Luckily I had a backup of my old iTunes on my server! Apple, this is unacceptable.

  • Slampie2 Dr. Sara Lampert (@Slampie2) reported

    I am trying to give Apple money to watch their shows. But I keep getting this message when I try to log in. "Before you can sign in on the web, first sign in to the Apple TV app on your iPhone or iPad. On a computer, sign in to Apple TV or iTunes." What gives? Are they for real?

  • ShottiSev @.brim🅿️ (@ShottiSev) reported

    @Apple mannnn itunes as a required login??? Thats bullshit especially when the company doesn’t give a **** bro . A trusted number attached to your icloud should be enough

  • maxiewawa maxiewawa (@maxiewawa) reported

    @MTGGoldfish @SaffronOlive @Theasianavenger podcast isn’t working for me in iTunes, anyone else having trouble? RT guys?

  • Orzodea Dae, Orzodea (@Orzodea) reported

    If I owned the copy of #dannyphantom I’d have no problem ripping it and use it iTunes to get it on my phone. But it’s the Library’s copy of Danny Phantom so I’m not entirely comfortable with doing that. I guess I’ll just have to suffer “big” screen 2nd hand embarrassment

  • toby1kanobi Toby K (@toby1kanobi) reported

    @richardhyland @IanRunkle No it wasn't. He was only talking about backups RE iTunes. Heards team shut him down at that point as he was about to elude to how they were exported and where to

  • Neo_Fluff Woof with a million eyes #HavokWillReign (@Neo_Fluff) reported

    Nice, really nice! Wanted to watch #PrehistoricPlanet but I guess not! First I spent 30 minutes trying to make an Apple ID because the site just kept on having issues. And then? It says I need a ITunes account which I can only create on an apple device or PC. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

  • RachaeltheLord rachaelthelord (@RachaeltheLord) reported

    you are a real one if you remember how terrible itunes was on christmas day.

  • the3blindmices The 3 Blind Mice (@the3blindmices) reported

    @Iilmirrycle @MetaverseNINJA What female rapper to date has a larger fan base? Net worth? On Forbes most money made year to year? Having people like Lil Nas X & Doja turned down by Nicki for features? Headlined their own world tour? Nicki’s discography? Number one’s on iTunes?

  • joshcobbler_ Josh Cobb (@joshcobbler_) reported

    iTunes used to let us convert Lil Wayne’s mixtapes to mp3 & I think we should sit down and talk about it

    @Kitsune__Spirit Goblin Fall Down, hitting YouTube and iTunes this October.

  • lawyerinbeta Lawyer in Beta 0.9.9 (@lawyerinbeta) reported

    And I cannot update yet bc the Apple Support person said there’s a known issue with 15.5 and restoring backups from iTunes, which is a thing I need to do and have been putting off. Cool cool cool.

  • NathanWagonn Wagoner (@NathanWagonn) reported

    @daddydanefuller If you have a laptop or desktop at home, download iTunes and plug it in there and see what it pops up as while you’re there name it whatever you want to avoid it. After working at AT&T I’ve seen this issue happen a few times and the only thing we could to was connect new name.

    435billion collective wealth stolen but it’s Raheem the $100 itunes card boy that is the problem.

  • LVLYsan Rose "Lovely" Spinoza (@LVLYsan) reported

    US itunes store hasn't been posting new Idolish7 singles/albums for purchase lately. They have them on their streaming subscription service, just not available to buy separately :/ .

  • embilbie 🕊️ also on Mastodon as @embilbie (@embilbie) reported

    @caitlen @The_Ausmerican yeah I can't use iTunes, I'm already across Windows and Android, one more OS (and associated cloud service) will do my head in, especially because the service I want to use to access/stream/play my media is Android, and hooked into my Google Nest throughout my home

  • MetTiinA Mette Aumala has new meds 🐦🦖🦕 (@MetTiinA) reported

    @Northywastaken You can watch it for free on the Apple TV+ website with any browser, as long as you create an Apple account. I hear people have had to download iTunes to access the trial. I've already had that for ages so I could just use the login I already had.

  • DrHawken Emshay (@DrHawken) reported

    Peeps, I’m broke. Mega broke. But I need my musics. Been alive so long I’ve paid for my musics 4 times over. At least. What’s the best, least ***-******* in your banks, music streaming service? Not iTunes, get ******.

  • rareri1013 triple r (@rareri1013) reported

    Trying to log into my iCloud account… iTunes: Sign in required! Me: okay. *types in password* iTunes: There’s been a problem, we can’t log you in. Reset password? Me: fine. *resets password* iTunes: Choose a password you haven’t used in the past year! Imma throw some hands

  • p1hdata P1H Data (@p1hdata) reported

    WW iTunes sales include all locations where iTunes is available. Apple AND Android users can purchase on iTunes. → If you're on Android, you'll need to download the Desktop version of iTunes on a Laptop/Computer. From here, you'll be able to create an Apple ID, sign in, & buy.

    @sonic_shoegazer I’ve started with my iTunes play count / last fm scrobbles and am adjusting up & down. It’s still going to be fairly arbitrary.
