    For some reason the iTunes Historyteller feed isn't updating automatically. You can fix the problem by unsubscribing from the feed, deleting and subscribing to it again. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Okay. I update my iOS on both my phone and my laptop and iTunes still isn’t recognising my phone when I plug it into my laptop. I know this is first world problems but damn this annoying.

    @iTunes I’m not buying from iTunes anymore for one simple reason: @Apple doesn’t allow you to stream your movie/TV show purchase to a friend’s AppleTV. If it was a DVD this would not be an issue. Your practice is encouraging people to buy less and seek alternative or free options.

    @jvournal you gotta scroll down on itunes where it says your email for your account and you click there and it should give you the subscriptions tab with apple music and u can cancel there or change ur plan

    @ONYAD4 @BODAKGOMEZ @adriansucccs @LGMonster95 @simmnfierzig @bhadmichael Cardi has been making history and breaking records left and right. Sit down Garb. Going #1 on iTunes in 80+ third world Countries and 100 Hot 100 entries that are mostly flops is not making history.

    @braunshizzle She couldn’t get the new iTunes because she hadn’t updated to the new macOS yet. It also broke my Windows version (fully up-to-date) with a cryptic error message that included a number in hex. I didn’t bother screen-shotting it 😐.

    @guccigraceb V true!!! I wish you could rent it on iTunes 😭 I always rent things but this one you can only buy as of now. Didn’t know if there was a cheaper streaming rental option through another service 🌟 but good to know it’s good enough to own!

    iTunes is a music store where you can purchase songs and download them. Apple Music is a subscription-based streaming service. With iTunes, you pay to own a license of a song. WithApple Music, you pay for access to a catalog of songs through a monthly subscription fee. #DMUMT

    Sales were terrible cause it was illegally downloaded. Over the weekend, before they made iTunes link available, almost everyone had access to it. The only reason I bought it is cause of Beyoncé cause I already got it before the iTunes link dropped tbh.

    @simplymisgenius @HommeFattale @ReloadedFridays @keeelg @NickiPromotions Don't get brave when your faves numbers are bought. Nobody sells the same amount of singles for 6 months straight on iTunes. Not even Adele or Drake. Numbers progressively go down. She doesn't even half half Drake's fun base, Just paid bots and radio personality hyping her up.

    @aerulesath Yes, same issue. I've used iTunes to handle it this time, but I'd prefer a command line solution I can integrate into scripted workflow. LAME wasn't behaving like this before Mojave.

    @drussellpsu @hbarw Weirdly, I have an iPod Touch second generation, running an old version of iOS, and it no longer connects to iTunes since I upgraded to Mojave. This happened in two different computers, so I guess this is an issue related to the upgrade.

    @kylehebert Declutters, yes, but you also run the risk of losing that collection if that service suddenly stops. Personally I do both: buy the physical copy with the digital code and stream the ultraviolet/itunes/whatever when I want to watch.

    @beau_jpg @dramafever I've been having issues with their billing system all year, and had issues signing up through itunes when it wouldn't let me pay any other way. They stopped responding to my emails as a whole and gave me attitude when they finally did respond. This is a whole mess.
