    A whole bigbong criminal stan shouldnt be concerned with how well BTS doing in US. How many radio spins they got or what rank is their album in itunes are not your problem cos last time I check,your faves dont sell any unit in US for years.

    @MrFusionMusic @thecastleberry Watch Chase the Truth instead. It's on Amazon, Google and iTunes. It's short. An hour long; a new documentary that breaks down a few of the lies in Leaving Neverland. Good luck. #LiesOfLeavingNeverland

  • Winner_Plenix YoureWinnerPlenix (@Winner_Plenix) reported

    @dessiixox @App_Valley_vip @ispoofercom @BobbyMovie I hear that signing out of iTunes in settings fixes that issue.

  • zachspinler Zach Spinler (@zachspinler) reported

    Never had so many problems since switching to Mac... mainly network connections, Xcode, ITunes, etc.. guess it’s time to have a handy separate pc due all the random problems.. Apple has gone down since Steve Jobs 😖 this is a fact. #100DaysOfCode

    Damn I have never connected my phone to iTunes and now that shit is disabled. Plus it’s not working.

  • R3P01012 Joe 🐐🐎 (@R3P01012) reported

    Changed the service to iTunes, so at least it removes all of the streaming exclusive trash

  • childbestrange cat (@childbestrange) reported

    @jessesingal That kind of happened to The Metro, a really fun group from the early 00s that has had their entire online presence reduced to iTunes listings and one single archived page of Napster ever since Myspace lost all that content in the server switch.

  • thrilllho 🌙 (@thrilllho) reported from Avondale, Texas

    I just found out my dad doesn’t have a streaming service. He is still buying songs off iTunes/ listening to pandora. 😭

  • LouiseHazeldine Louise Hazeldine (@LouiseHazeldine) reported

    @LauraLizBuckley @paul_grealish I have real issues downloading a few podcasts on iTunes and have hardly anything on my actual laptop ... I hope you can avoid the same issue!

  • adamearl Adam Earl (@adamearl) reported

    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do not click ‘report a problem’ on their iTunes invoices.

  • mitchpix Mitch Kloorfain (@mitchpix) reported from Port Saint Lucie, Florida

    @AppleSupport I did not and I also just realize that when I did re-open iTunes I did not have to login. My name and password were already part of it

  • OnBangerzTour #SlideAway (@OnBangerzTour) reported

    @SheIsComingEP itunes store will still exist, itunes app on mac will shut down.

  • DrDavidWarriner David Warriner (@DrDavidWarriner) reported

    About to watch “Pantani: The Accidental Death”. Here’s hoping it’s not terrible as there is literally NOTHING on the telly or else worth renting on iTunes.

  • slideawaymiley miley 🥃💊 (@slideawaymiley) reported

    It’s been 12h since we’re “close” to be #1 on iTunes I’m tired of y’all broken ******* 😫

  • JerryT0ThisTay Jerry FAN ACCOUNT (@JerryT0ThisTay) reported

    Motivation is sliding down the iTunes and streaming charts and gaining views slowly. It has made literally no noise besides the celebrities she paid to promote it 💀

  • Brightestchild Kirby2012 (@Brightestchild) reported

    I don’t have any WiFi nor do I have cell phone service in my building so I’m just watching the random music video of Kid Cudis behind the scenes of his 2009 tour that somehow downloaded to my iTunes to pass the time

  • gnu1970 graham nugent (@gnu1970) reported

    @AppleSupport Hi have a problem with connecting my iPhone iPad and iPod classic to my iTunes using Windows 10. Could you give me a link so I can download Apple mobile Device USB Driver. Already deleted iTunes and re-loaded it. Thanks Graham

  • MaikNog MaikNog (@MaikNog) reported

    @lt_francesco @ImmersedVR Tried @ImmersedVR on Quest & MBP (no Wifi-Direct). Setup & placement of desktops works okay & intuitive; found some bugs in #usability. Had PPT, iTunes, IDE and browser running. Fonts might be an issue for glasses. I prefer other keyboard than MBP (~blind typing).

  • DrLavaYT Dr. Lava's Lost Pokemon (@DrLavaYT) reported

    @tubasenpai @GamingReinvent Yeesh, yeah I don't know honestly. Maybe buy the games, play them on your TV, and record it with a VHS tape. Then convert that VHS to a DVD, then burn it into your iTunes. Problem solved.

  • BetCato BetCato (@BetCato) reported

    @la_bonj go Android!!! Heard today a rumor about them shutting down iTunes. And the iPhone has been lagging behind Android phones in a variety of areas for 5 years now. They went from coming up with new ideas to being behind and fighting lawsuits over patent infringement. I had (1/3)

  • danniebear87 Tori Gwathney (@danniebear87) reported

    Finally got my iTunes to read my iPhone. Turns out it was just the cord. So picky. It has to be ajnApple charger. Whatever just put my music on my phone so I can go lay down.

  • Skramerwrites Sean Kramer (@Skramerwrites) reported

    iTunes has existed for almost 15 years now and it's incredible how terrible the program still is. It gets less user friendly every year.

  • ColleenMaryErin Colleen Mary Erin (@ColleenMaryErin) reported

    @ItsMeDeaner Check the App Store...sometimes developers releases a new app rather than updating old. If not, delete the app and redownload unless it’s going to cause you problems to delete all content. If problem, do an iTunes back up first so it saves all that and then delete and redownload

  • ranchbronc Captain Ron (@ranchbronc) reported

    @itsJayRodstupid @CorbLund Yeah I still buy singles and albums on iTunes because service isn’t always good enough for streaming

    @SassyCanadianCk Exciting. I remember how excited I was when Paul McCartney followed me. I was amazed he had money problems and needed me to send him some iTunes gift cards. Poor guy.

    @GioAbelix Modern War there’s constantly a problem, looking for someone to take on a class action against them since they change their device requirements after many have spent so much money on the game Modern War #apple #itunes #classaction #funzio #GREE #deca_games @modernwar

  • ericleamen Eric Leamen (@ericleamen) reported

    PSA: I haven’t been able to make iTunes purchases with my @scotiabank Scene VISA via Apple Pay for a few weeks now. Spoke to Scotiabank and apparently it’s an issue between @AppleSupport and @VisaCA that won’t be fixed until October. So you know, in case this happens to you…

  • The_LadyPatriot The Lady Patriot (@The_LadyPatriot) reported

    @beckeral7 @MSaippa @viallnicholas28 @amandastantonnn @chrisbharrison @TylerJCameron3 i’m done arguing with someone who was born in 1945 and understands nothing about modern media. get the f uck over it and listen to the podcast on iTunes instead of watching the YouTube video & your absurd problem is solved.

I say this as someone putting in hours a week representing @astro and others in field's attempt to keep @CMSGov from burning house down with RO-APM.

  • Reyrrjo rey-rey (@Reyrrjo) reported

    @iTunes maybe if your employee would listen to my problem and actually try to help i would’t be missing a lot of songs. Smh customer service not good

  • JonMcL Jon McLaughlin 🍄 (@JonMcL) reported from Brooklyn, New York

    @AmazonHelp No frustration. I watched in in iTunes. :) If it’s working in your QA facilities, and if it works for other customers, then it’s not worth spending any more time on. I just thought I would mention Incase it was a widespread issue for that movie.

  • AndyJenck Andy Jenck (@AndyJenck) reported

    @DanMorrison1962 @jcastlemanmc Well it's not like iTunes will be shut down by Apple in the near future...

  • Andy_Lara Andy Lara (@Andy_Lara) reported

    @notyourpastors @anchor I did the transition. Didn’t run into any major issues. The Q’s I had to resolve with support was what to do about an existing account with iTunes and Google. Ultimately, they manually attached the accounts after my inquiry and everything went fine. I followed the instructions.

  • gabbott1212 Greg Abbott (@gabbott1212) reported

    @FandangoNOW You need an Apple TV app so I can use your service. Until then I’ll be sticking to iTunes and Vudu.

  • tahoegirl63 Marie (@tahoegirl63) reported
