If you purchase movies, music, and TV shows from iTunes, it doesn't matter what device you purchased them on, in most cases they're available to you via iTunes in the Cloud, part of iCloud, from anywhere. Aside from your iPhone and iPad, that also includes iTunes on your Mac or PC.
If you frequently purchase apps and games on your iPhone or iPad, you may find yourself running out of space or cluttering up your Home screen with icons you barely launch anymore. Most people say they don't delete apps and games in fear of not being able to get them back. Luckily, thanks to iTunes in the Cloud, part of iCloud, you can easily re-download any apps or games you previously purchased whenever you'd like at no additional cost to you.
If you've purchased books from iBooks, you can download and enjoy them across all your devices. It doesn't matter what device you purchased them on, you can easily enjoy purchased books on any device.

Not only can you re-download apps that you've previously purchased, but thanks to iTunes in the Cloud, you can also re-download any music, movies, or tv shows that you've purchased. Whether you accidentally deleted something or want to download something to your iPad that you purchased on your iPhone, you can easily do so in just a few taps.
If you own both an iPhone and iPad, iTunes in the Cloud, which is part of iCloud, lets you easily sync your content from one to the other with no work on your part.

The same holds true for music and iBooks purchases. All you have to do is enable automatic downloads on all your iOS devices.

Instead of enabling automatic downloads in its own respective section of the Settings app, like other iTunes in the Cloud content is treated, Newsstand publications now have the option to take advantage of background app refresh.
iPhones and iPads don't come with an unlimited amount of storage space. One of the biggest culprits when it comes to eating space is music. Sure, the individual files aren't large, but many people have hundreds if not thousands of them in their collections and they can really add up. Deleting music can free up valuable storage space. Whether you're using iTunes in the Cloud to bring down your music or syncing it with iTunes, the process of deleting a song is the same.
I rent a lot of movies on the Apple TV. It's quick, it's easy, and new titles are available immediately upon release — if not sooner sometimes. Usually that's fine. I don't often watch a movie more than once. Sometimes, however, I like a movie so much I decide I want to buy it. That's when things get interesting...
