While some people like this convenience, others may not appreciate it, especially if storage space is an issue on certain devices. Luckily you can disable it in just a few taps.

How to hide the free U2 album on iPhone, iPad, and iTunes

After Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus announcement, U2 took the stage. After that iTunes customers in over 100 countries were told they'd have access to their new album, Songs of Innocence, for free.

How to change the iTunes account on your iPhone or iPad

For some people, their iTunes account, iCloud, even Apple Online Store accounts are one and the same. The email address and password combo they use to log into the iTunes Store, iBooks Store, and App Store is identical to the one they use to log in iCloud email and Find my iPhone, is the same one they use to checkout from store.apple.com. It's a beautiful, unified dream. Others, however, have separate iTunes accounts. Whether that's because they're so old they predate iCloud, or because they're shared with a partner or family, or simply because they want them that way, the email address and password they use to log into iTunes is different than iCloud, and has to be set up separately. If you're one of those people with a separate iTunes account, or you ever need to change which iTunes account you're logged in on, you're in luck — Apple makes it easy to do!
