  • derrida04 monk (@derrida04) reported

    @1691UK None of the above . I don’t stream. I buy my albums and save it on my server. Now I will stop buying from iTunes. It keeps trying to connect back to iTunes after I have already downloaded it so annoying ...

  • KindyDreaming Ashley 💜💫 (@KindyDreaming) reported from Edogawa Ku, Tokyo Prefecture

    Found the issue, partly the fact that iTunes settings didn’t transfer over to the new phone, partly my external drive wouldn’t wake up.

  • JayDanielsAU Jay Daniels (@JayDanielsAU) reported

    The whole point of being subscribed to a music service is days like today so I’m very annoyed. Also, iTunes and App Store has been having problems for months. Apple services are really struggling lately. Makes me wonder why I dropped all that money on an iPhone when nothing works

  • zippaty Zach (@zippaty) reported


  • mixesntapes Mixes 'n' Tapes (@mixesntapes) reported

    Premiering the truest of them all, Rap Game Tiny Tim, layin' down some bars on his new track, Don't Even Try Bruh. Get it now on iTunes.

  • mnasadoo mnasadoo (@mnasadoo) reported

    @jbdd1293 @fangirlJeanne I check at least once a month to see if this is steaming somewhere. It is not. Will break down and buy it on iTunes eventually.

  • CortTube Cort (@CortTube) reported

    @jourdayen I think it's an exclusive to Apple TV/iTunes but the additional scenes do not fix the problems it had if you want to save time and money

  • wsrphoto Scott Knowles (@wsrphoto) reported

    Just the Mac App Store. Everything else works, including IOS and iPad OS and both iTunes. It seems to be connection issue to download. It worked last week. I'm open to suggestions to test.

  • DhabitahPunk Dhabitah Kamarudin (@DhabitahPunk) reported

    @wehavehalflives I used to buy physical CDs when I had a Discman and there were CD shops here. And I do listen to the CDs. But now, I only buy music from iTunes cuz all the CD stores have closed down. 😭

  • DanielS80958647 Daniel Schröder (@DanielS80958647) reported

    e.g all the movies which exist stored in a database on on that big satellite, and a service like e.g. Itunes. and then loading down the customer.

  • e_kamsy ‘𝕐𝕆ℕℕ𝔸’ ❤️ (@e_kamsy) reported

    FBI/CIA probably took down that album from itunes. ****** was spitting hard bard.

  • 22Mustangpride MustangPride_22 (@22Mustangpride) reported

    @DavidBrody @TheBrooklynBoys @SkeeryJones @AllieGoldfish @diamondsincere_ @deannamoo22 @jessie_brand @iTunes @GooglePlay @iHeartRadio Just double checking never had this issue before

  • ProfessorXXMS Professor XXMS (@ProfessorXXMS) reported

    After what feels like forever Routenote finally got back to me about the issues with pandora and #Splitpart2... it should be on there soon... as for #Splitpart3 not being on ITunes that should get resolved here soon to...

  • tooprettykay___ 🏁TMC (@tooprettykay___) reported

    “He wanna bust it down then eat that shit up, he ain’t playing with this ***** he gonna beat that shit up🤪” @1dessdior I need this on iTunes

  • Farahahhhh Faraway (@Farahahhhh) reported

    @kaiky10435718 @LeoManrique7 Problem solved, just restore thru itunes

  • lBernardo__ venezuelan doll (@lBernardo__) reported

    Screaming cause everything I had was a hand me down from my siblings and when I got his ipod nano it was full of glee songs and I didnt know how to make itunes work so I would just sit there and listened to the glee songs😭

  • katibughouser KatiBug (@katibughouser) reported

    Epic fail removing #itunes capability from the @Sonos app. What a terrible decision.

  • MomosMnet Carl G. (@MomosMnet) reported

    @witchernetflix @SonyaBelousova I might get that iTunes version soon-ish, but I'd love either a CD or a vinyl release down the line.

  • ImJustCruisin Pedro | CEO of ADE, Inc. (@ImJustCruisin) reported

    @Tevin2Js @6Gaawd Illegal websites and stuff was getting shut down every day son. During that time they still wanted you to buy cds. When he popped on the scene, it wasn’t until that time where you started seeing iTunes start making the transition to start charging for music

  • NeilFazel Neil Fazel (@NeilFazel) reported

    @AppleSupport Of the 343 tracks in “J.S. Bach: Complete Edition, Vol. 2/10”, only 246 track were actually purchased. I spent an hour on the phone yesterday and was told there was an issue with iTunes Store even though Apple System Status didn’t indicate a problem.

  • JonSolberg3 Jon Solberg (@JonSolberg3) reported

    @GunthorTM There’s in issue within iTunes. It’s on their side. Unsubscribe and resubscribe and it should be there. I think Greg is going to talk about this issue in this weeks show. @BBQCentralShow

  • justasom1 Sema Şentürk (@justasom1) reported

    @musicislife2207 @bangban51911935 @spillaristea 7R is already slowing down while havana enter itunes every week and still has good streams also senorita came out 6 months after 7R still sold almost as much and got way more streams than 7R

  • wsrphoto Scott Knowles (@wsrphoto) reported

    ITunes store works fine. No Internet problems except one, HP ftp site for printers drivers (obsoleted one of 3 printers) quits at same point (unsure it's file or time). App store problem started last week with update for extension. Four waiting for update won't download. -->

  • TheAmazingRyGuy Ryan Huelsman / DC’s New 52 Apologist (@TheAmazingRyGuy) reported

    @roundsuperman It truly is a joke. I’ve had library/iTunes issues before last night but the worst would be when I’d download an album and it would be split in two. I’d have to go in and down their job by labeling files correctly. Now it’s like I have ghost music on my phone... a joke

  • Trcv_ebooks Trebooks (@Trcv_ebooks) reported

    Classic iTunes 9 error 11m but holding Shift then turned back off due to low battery .:(

  • ChristianSelig Christian Selig (@ChristianSelig) reported

    @ultratiem Given that iTunes itself was down too I don’t think it was someone editing an HTML file haha. Plus I hold a billion dollar storefront to higher standards than my own code

  • SonsofUCF Sons of UCF (@SonsofUCF) reported

    @knightbengal @UCFMike1 @AP_Knightline I listened to it on iTunes and didn’t have any issues. Not sure what happened.

  • PhillipGoik Phillip Goik DL2PG (@PhillipGoik) reported

    @matteyeux It would be nice to have an option to format the internal storage to fix iTunes Restore errors because of bad Partitioning 🤔

  • pedrocs Pedro Couto e Santos (@pedrocs) reported

    @nifan @Spotify @AppleMusic I found no advantage to Spotify's suggestions over Apple's, to be honest, and since I mostly use Apple products, iTunes isn't that much of a problem. But I am on Windows right now, actually, and I can't complain either.

  • Fr0gFath3r 击 lara 击 (@Fr0gFath3r) reported

    i had to call apple support (on my own😔) cus me and my dad couldn’t buy songs on itunes and they could help my dad and there was no problem and they told me they couldn’t help because THEY DIDN’T WORK ON SATURDAYS

  • SammyInPyjamas Ellen⁷ (@SammyInPyjamas) reported

    @xoJoyBelleox @holmes_suriya Uh, no - J-hopes chicken noodle soup homage - he paid the ogs $3million before AND got their blessings and then released the song for free ahead of iTunes releasing. Stop projecting yourself onto BTS - they aren't corrupt, they are good genuine people and this is a you problem

  • mixesntapes Mixes 'n' Tapes (@mixesntapes) reported

    Introducing ya boy, Hipster Hopster, layin' down some bars on his new album, Don't Even Try Bruh. Get it now on iTunes.

  • UKMarkLeeds Mark-A (@UKMarkLeeds) reported

    Sat down to watch #DeathInParasise ep3 on #iTunes to find they have replaced it with Call the Midwife. Thanks @Apple @AppleTV @AppleSupport @iTunes but no thanks. I want to watch DIP please., you know, the thing I paid for, not some other random program.

  • Quisemo98 Marquise Norris (@Quisemo98) reported

    @AppleTV @iTunes @TwitterMusic @Disney @TwitterMovies I have a problem message me ASAP pls

  • welles Shaun Bender (@welles) reported

    @j23evan You bet. I had to buy the box set from a device that still has iTunes, as the TV app does not show box sets— another #Apple issue.

  • omgbenjones ⚜️omgbenjones⚜️ (@omgbenjones) reported

    “Get the gat” isn’t playable on iTunes in California is anyone else having this issue

  • BoStaffer Steak Plissken (@BoStaffer) reported

    @ClintSmithIII I (sadly) ignored Downton Abbey as a show until a long overseas flight in which the in-flight screens were down. I’d gotten ep. 1 free on iTunes previously and watched it on my iPad and they had me from then on. They really tried it with my man Bates!

  • itzxcx chuy (@itzxcx) reported

    stream i disagree by @poppy if you disagree with this post out now on itunes or any streaming service! xxx

  • jonnabeer 𝙹𝚘𝚗𝚗𝚊 𝙱𝚎𝚎𝚛 (@jonnabeer) reported

    @Xo_jac_ First it was my pictures that never properly transferred over. Now it’s an issue in iTunes. I know I purchased songs in the past, but when I go to play them and click on them a cloud icon pops up telling me to download on this device.

  • StarsideCanine エリヤ (@StarsideCanine) reported

    Me: *opens twitter on my iphone* "Sign in to iTunes Store. Enter the password for your Apple ID."

  • Midona_ Midona Porter Bridges (@Midona_) reported

    @teejaye84 Big problem with Itunes and my PC (but finally resolved 💪).

  • donniedarkonw Sherlock Holmes (@donniedarkonw) reported

    @lawseyitfc @AppleSupport iTunes is having issues mate. Lots of people with same issue.

  • DexTheDragon Dex (@DexTheDragon) reported

    tech problem: home NAS should arrive within next few days how do i move music over without itunes getting very confused that it's not where it was because right now if i move anything it just duplicates it


    @AppleSupport damn I wanted to spend some money to day but I guess iTunes Store is down.

  • Monsters_Multi Monsters & Multiclass (@Monsters_Multi) reported

    Looks like iTurnes was missing our latest episode. This issue has been resolved and if iTunes/Apple Podcasts is your main way to listen, be sure to check that it downloaded properly. Sorry for any inconvenience!

  • mmoore5948 Madison Moore (@mmoore5948) reported

    It would be the one day that I have money to spend on the app store that iTunes would be down.

  • IanFuchs Ian Fuchs 🦊 (@IanFuchs) reported

    Every morning for the past week, I’ve had a notification on my iPhone to enter my iTunes Password. The notification provides no info as to WHY or what app/service is prompting, so I hit cancel. The next morning around 4, I get promoted again.

  • OkayWhateverB Tom Maloka (@OkayWhateverB) reported

    @TeamAKAForever @SirFigo_SA @akaworldwide Because it's been shoved down our throats by the radio stations. That's why it's only charting radio charts and nowhere to be seen of Music sales services charts like iTunes and streaming services charts like Apple Music.

  • notaxation Colin Moriarty (@notaxation) reported

    FYI: Sacred Symbols #82 isn't syndicating to iTunes for some reason. This appears to be an Apple Podcasts-wide problem. Our reps know (their other podcasts are also not syndicating), and they're looking into it. The episode is on Spotify, YouTube, etc. Hopefully fixed soon! <3

  • AndyIbanezK Andy Ibanez (@AndyIbanezK) reported

    Just sending a big F for the bigger developers who are dealing with the iTunes Store problems right now.

  • yoowillie willieB🌥 (@yoowillie) reported

    @V_C203 nah. For starters, I’ve spun all the other albums 2000x more than GKMC tbh so I have no problem not hearing that ever again. plus I’d never take Cole album out I saved up 30$ to buy it on iTunes and the physical 😂

  • PandoraSupport Pandora Support (@PandoraSupport) reported

    Heads 🆙 We're looking into some issues with purchasing subscriptions via the iTunes app store using iOS devices. We'll provide an update once we've learned more.

  • PandoraSupport Pandora Support (@PandoraSupport) reported

    @Icedcoffeeiswin Ack -- apologies! We've actually just started looking into an issue with subscriptions purchased via the iTunes app store. Still investigating, but we'll hit you up once we've got more info.

  • kakigorii kakigorii 💥 (@kakigorii) reported

    @AppleSupport I’ve been trying to activate my subscription through hbo and it keeps saying that iTunes can’t be reached it still down or

  • gaandalagirl28 Laina Freeman (@gaandalagirl28) reported

    @PlayChoices I have had an issue on my iPad for not having open heart 2 but I don't know if I have an issue on purchasing anything bc I don't have the money right now to get an Itunes card to purchase anything I hope y'all can give us more keys to open chapters

  • JohnnyRayGable Johnny Ray Gable (@JohnnyRayGable) reported

    My website will be down for some time, not too sure about when it will be up and running again. In the meantime, Check me out on @Bandcamp @iTunes @amazonmusic @Spotify and other retailers

  • msgreenjeans Jen S (@msgreenjeans) reported

    @wowziesnwowzers @AppleSupport Issues in the US too!!! No access from iPhone or @AppleTV to @iTunes!

  • chellyramirez13 michelle🌸 (@chellyramirez13) reported

    Of course iTunes is down when I need to download a certain app.

  • EdwardAthelstan Tad Marshall (@EdwardAthelstan) reported

    The iTunes Store is down, though the Apple Status page says it is up. There does not seem to be a way to report the outage to Apple without opening a support case. Since my currently open support case is being ignored, I don’t see myself making the effort to help them out.
