With an active Apple Music subscription, it's very easy to add new music to your iTunes library.
When you subscribe to Apple Music, you can add to your own iTunes music library the many millions of tracks available through the service. It's important to note, however, that you don't own these tracks. Really, you're renting them.

Rich's Apple Watch was oriented so the Digital Crown was in the lower left hand corner instead — an orientation practitioners call "reverse crown."
Intel's newest sixth-generation Core processor technology touts performance and efficiency improvements, but the biggest beneficiaries will be those replacing older Mac hardware — once new systems are available.
A rumor surfaced this week that Apple's excising its One to One program at its retail store in favor of expanding the free group workshops program. One to One allows owners of new Macs and other devices to purchase a year's worth of weekly, personalized training with Apple specialists in Apple retail stores at a steal of a price: $99.
