    So my response to stress is that I forget to eat. And all these site problems have stressed me right the hell out because I’ve been afraid iTunes will delist me or you will get annoyed and unsubscribe. What I’m trying to say is that I’ve found a really effective diet, you guys.

    I've been trying for 30 min to give @apple money and the entire process is stupid. iTunes on a mac and iphone require me to contact support for no apparent reason with generic, unhelpful error messages. The support site says "we'll email you within 48 hours. Android is so easy.

    @Marsluvsu1001 @zerinarmy @SyubDGloss @hersingularity_ @bIuesidebabe Honey the charting issue here, just like 2!3! is an iTunes buying project that was spearhead by Mr. Chartdata. Charting and streaming doesn't mean the same thing. That's what I'm saying. We already stream songs everyday, anyway

    @samriegel For all using an iPhone: don’t click the link as it will default to Apple Music. Instead, go into the iTunes Store app, search Critical Role, click the songs tab, and it should be a little ways down the list (11th song down for me).

    @xANGx92 @Ta5tyy If it overheats. Leave it to cool down my turning it off. If the battery is bad, it might be because of aging. If you can’t download anything it might not be compatible. If you forgot the passcode, you can get it factory reseted by using a computer and the iTunes app for Windows.

    @Jakeashacks @artikus_hg @iKilledAppl3 @albyvar25 @Nalu_Tech They would have to change the TSS server altogether to require Apple ID/PWD authentication breaking iTunes older than the latest though - as otherwise idevicerestore would be able to work around that.

    @ChrisClarkNFL @WillieBmen13 hi Wilie. I checked the feed and it looks like itunes is downloading/streaming the episodes correctly. I just re-downloaded both without any problems. Depending o the podcast app you're using, you may have to uninstall and re-install the feed or the app

    @TheHornGuy I had the same problem a few years ago and found them in the iTunes Music folder. They weren’t all filed by title so I had to go through each one and rename it. It should have backed them up somewhere in those ITunes files on the computer so don’t give up!

    First I can't figure out why my MacBook is slowing down. Next I get a low hard drive space warning. Then I find out it's iTunes having downloaded hundreds of podcast episodes (100+ GB worth!). Spend 20 minutes trying to delete the files. [1/2]

    Hey Pat, thanks for the heads up. There seemed to be a technical issue on my end. Sorry about that. I just made a tweak and I think it's working now. Please try streaming it again or re-downloading the episode on iTunes/SoundCloud/Google Play. It should be fixed!

    @harsh2990 @AppleSupport @JioCare @reliancejio Same happened to me. Jio mobile data was not working for some reason after updating to 12.1.1. I did a phone reset and restored it using iTunes and now everything working perfectly fine. IOS 12.1.1 enabled esim so probably that could be the culprit.

    @brianjbellz @SRuhle But saying “no” when you mean “yes” is HUGE issue. I personally like the song and not sure it should be pulled from the radio but I also wouldn’t mind if it were pulled. I’m sure it’s available on iTunes for the people who really want to listen to it.

    If #iOS1211 is getting you down, just wait a few hours after updating devices then restart your computer about 17 times and iTunes will see your devices again and stop freezing. Not the smoothest of updates this time 🙄#PatienceIsKey @Apple @AppleNews @AppleSupport
