    Fucking crApple. Will you ever just kill iTunes? To cancel my storage subscription I have to download the iTunes client, which no longer works on Windows (wobbly login screen of death - look it up). I don't have any Apple hardware so what do ya do. Ever heard of the web, Apple?

    @Wayno119 Who nigga? I think it's wack to say Lil Kim doesn't write her shit when she's BEEN doing if for years. Her Album is trending on ITunes right now still after 20yrs. U are entitled to your opinion but when u say Nicki going down as the best Fem Mc, you might want think twice.

    Matt (@BraveNewMatt) reported

    @rich1espears Hmm. I'm not 100% sure off the top of my head. I ended up changing the cover art through iTunes before I added them to my Spotify and I didn't have that issue so maybe that has something to do with it. I can do a thread on changing the cover art if you want me to

    Willi Kampmann (@willikampmann) reported

    To even find your active subscriptions, you have to go on a long scavenger hunt: Settings -> iTunes & App Store -> tap on your Apple ID which isn’t even indicated to be a button -> Show Apple ID -> wait -> scroll way down to subscriptions and tap that. #UX #appsubscriptions

    @ManaByte But it’s not 4K on iTunes. What’s the issue on that?

  • gravley_austin
    Austin Gravley (@gravley_austin) reported

    I love @Apple , but its remarkable that iTunes Connect has been broken 1) multiple times this year and 2) for the past week. I can't help but feel this is deliberate, as any "contact us" link loops you back to a login that never works. @AppleSupport doesn't want to deal with it.

    @xphelipex @iTunes Nope. Been going back and forth with support over phone and email for a few days and still getting the same error.

    @zwgarth @iTunes Same troubles here. Broken pages. Loops. Contact/support pages leading nowhere. Trillion dollars doesn't go very far when it comes to fixing basic services. Apparently.

    @TeamYouTube I will try what you suggested but while I was waiting for a fix I reseted my iPhone using iTunes and even after that it still happens. The problem mostly appears when leaving full screen mode.

    @PayMayaOfficial 1. thank you for your prompt attention.. my friend called your customer service and they did not know this process and was advised to call Itunes... Merchants will not believe a customer telling them its not authorised transactions because they dont have a way to verify me.

    @marcusmeurer95 @OvercastFM Did you get an answer to this, Marcus? Will soon be facing the same problem. Question is: if we simply change the RSS feed in iTunes, will the @OvercastFM podcast remain in its place and just draw on the new feed? Or do we need to do anything in addition? Thanks for your help.

  • PollutionRadio
    Noise Pollution Podcast (@PollutionRadio) reported

    On some platforms, episodes 44 and 45 got messed up with audio and titles. The issue should be resolved on almost all platforms now. I would recommend iTunes, Podbean, Stitcher, Spotify, Google Podcasts or Google Play Music for now! I apologize, and thank you for your patience!

    @homay @AppleSupport @AppStore @Sony Since we have the complaint department on the line, I’m streaming Infinity War on iTunes for PC(not a potato). Movie must be restarted every seven minutes because it freezes. This movie cost $22 and the experience would’ve been better if I pirated it. How’s that for service?

    Look at us! We're iTunes! You can totally buy and rent movies on our service, but god fucking help you if you try to use our services on devices that we didn't sell you, asshole.

    @AppleSupport, encrypted backup to my iTunes and a restore shouldn’t require me to re-login to anything/app or reconfigure my 2FA application.

    @mnarmintor He said at a Q&A I attended that they did the rough tracks, including scratch vocals, for most of a sequel, & as you may know, we're still waiting for the full "Blackstar" – the original is 12-13 minutes, chopped down so iTunes would release it as a single

  • TheDanaAddams
    🦋 Dana Addams 🦋 (@TheDanaAddams) reported

    Alas, they seem content to let their legacy content exist in this used-market limbo, and so we have no other options beyond unofficial archival copies and emulators. We would happily pay a small fee for legit ROM downloads - an iTunes-style service for old games would be great!

    For those waiting for the show to land on iTunes: Heard back from Apple support. There's a fundamental problem with the system that brings podcasts to the service. A fix is coming, but "there currently is no turn around time as far as when we can expect this to be resolved."

    @AppleSupport And, in anticipation of your next question, I just checked to see if I had any pending updates. There was one, and it had to do with Apple devices using a USB port. I installed the update, and my iPhone and iPad immediately appeared in iTunes. iPod caused an error, though.

    @Aarlyn27 Hm, its working on the desktop version of iTunes so it seems to be an apple podcasts specific issue. Could you go to settings > podcasts, turn off "sync podcasts," then try deleting the episode and redownloading? Supposedly that works.
