Click on the links above to get to the section most likely to be relevant to your problem: Keeping your i Tunes software up-to-date on your Mac (or PC) can avoid many of the questions we address below. First we will look at what to do if your i Tunes won’t update.

From time to time Apple updates i Tunes, and when it does you can guarantee that some people will encounter difficulties updating the software.

Especially if you have signed up for any of the services that run alongside it, such as Apple Music and i Tunes Match.

Of course, there is still more to i Tunes than music - you can also store movies and TV series there, used to keep a back up of your Apps too.

If you were reacting to an error message on your i Phone that told you to Connect to i Tunes, read: How to fix 'i Phone is disabled. If you have an extensive collection of music on your Mac that you want to appear on your i Phone (and you don’t pay for i Tunes Match,) you will need to sync your i Phone and i Tunes on your Mac in order to copy the music to the i Phone (or i Pad).

There are a few reasons why music might not play in i Tunes.

Sometimes it will be due to copy-right issues, whereby you need to prove you own the track in question, other times it might be that the track is no longer correctly linked to your i Tunes library.

i Tunes has been around since January 2001, before even the i Pod launched.

The software used to be fundamental when it came to syncing music with that device, and later on, syncing and updating the i Phone, but now-a-days i Tunes is of less importance as many i Phone and i Pad users choose to sync their music via the cloud.Unfortunately this is an other area where sometimes you may encounter issues.
