Rating songs in iTunes Radio can help it serve up music that's better suited to your tastes. So instead of just skipping through songs next time you don't like a specific track, be sure to tell iTunes Radio. The same goes for music you do like. Here's how:
iTunes Match, Apple's streaming service for music, matches your entire music library and allows you to stream music directly to your iPhone or iPad wherever you have a data connection. There may come times where you don't have a data connection and would like to download certain music to your iPhone or iPad for use when you don't have service. As of iOS 6.1, you can now download and delete individual songs, instead of whole albums, right on your iPhone and iPad.
If you haven't hopped on the iCloud and iTunes Match bandwagons just yet, you can still sync content to your iPhone and iPad with iTunes. The newly released iTunes 11 switches things up a little so if you aren't quite sure how to continue using iTunes to manage all your media and apps, follow along and we'll show you how.
Siri can help you access your music more easily than ever. With Siri you can play tracks, albums, and entires genres without ever having to open your Music app. If you're in the car, Siri also makes for a safe way to keep your tunes going while keeping your hands on the wheel.
If you are a user of iTunes in the Cloud and only keep part of your music collection on your iOS device and all of your collection in iCloud, you may want to retrieve some extra music from iCloud or even delete some music on your device. It is all very simple to do, keep on reading and we will show you how.
If you are like me and spent hours ensuring your album and track artwork is all in order in iTunes only to find that when you subscribed to iTunes Match it all went haywire, you are not alone. I signed up for iTunes Match last week when the international launch went live. I uploaded all of my music only to find that the album artwork showed up fine in album view but only the first track of each album showed any artwork, all of the other tracks had missing artwork.
Apple just recently launched their iTunes Match service for users in the United States. Subscribing to the service is just about as easy as making an App Store or iTunes music purchase. Once you're all set up you'll be able to access your iTunes library via iCloud from devices such as your AppleTV without physically having a computer to stream from.
Heard about Apple's iCloud beta and wondering how you can use it to download all your previously purchased apps, songs, and books in iTunes? Well you're in luck, because with iTunes 10.3, it's easy (although music is currently limited to US users only. Sigh.) Read on to find out how, after the break.
Dancing while holding your iPhone and wondering how to stop it from switching tracks every time you shake your groove thing? It might sound silly, but we've been asked about this several times so we figured we better write it up once and for all. Luckily, it's easy to prevent your popping from locking up, just follow on after the break!
