The Apple way is to pick a folder on your PC for sync. You do this through iTunes, by connecting your phone and picking the photos tab. Full information here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4236 However, if it's just 1 or 2 photos, the easiest way is to use Dropbox (you have Dropbox right?). Put the photo in your Dropbox, go to the same folder using the ...

I noticed that, in iBooks, I have a book (Inheritance) which iBooks highlights as a member of a series (in my case called 'Eragon' instead of 'The Farseer Trilogy'). In order to investigate this, I downloaded Inheritance and stripped the DRM using Requiem (on an old virtual machine) so I could poke about in the source code of the book. Unfortunately, I have ...

I don't think they have anything to do with one another. iTunes match gives you the high-quality version of any song in your library. You can then have access to these songs from any of your devices. iTunes radio is just listening to music, online, like a radio.

Open iBooks, go to File and select 'Move Books from iTunes…'. This should fix the problem.

Doing it manually: You can also place your genre image in /Applications/iTunes.app/Contents/Resources (shift+cmd+G and paste this path to open it directly) and add your genre in genres.plist file. Use TextEdit or your favourite Editor of that kind (I use TextWrangler). Copy and paste an existing list object like this one: <dict> ...

I would do this by using Automator. Use the 'do shell script' action in Automator and input the ln command you detail above, and create a .app file. Then send that file to your friend and have them execute it, thus creating the symlink for them without having to have them load Terminal.

I had the same issue when iBooks got updated. The way I access Calibre when on my iPad is to put my Calibre library in Dropbox. Then, I can just access ebooks in Dropbox and 'Open With…' iBooks, read them, and delete them again. I used to do the same thing but using the CrashPlan app; either would work (it basically depends on what cloud storage system you ...

iTunes can handle just about any file format that works with QuickTime and will play any file purchased or downloaded from the iTunes Store. If you've got video files that end with a .mov, .m4v, or .mp4 file extension, you can import them to iTunes with ease. However, the video especially the MP4 video must meet the following specifications: it must be ...

You can manually turn it on and off in the Notifications System preferences. Update to this Answer: This works on my Mac quite well.

Handoff is not supported in Music.app, however your use case (control media playback on your iPhone from a Mac) would be more along the lines of what the Apple Remote app does, just in reverse. Tunes Remote allows you to control one device from another device or a Mac. I have not used the software, so YMMV.

it appears not. I've always thought being able to continue playing a playlist or album on another device is well over due. I'd use it much more that safari or mail as that was kind of available anyway with the iCloud tab in safari or the drafts folder in mail.

Are you using POP3 or IMAP for your email? If your service is POP3, then each machine will download emails unread by that machine, up to the retention limit of the mail server. This means that you will always have to manually delete each email from each machine. There is the possibility that you can adjust the retention limit, to reduce the amount of ...

The verification is for your Apple ID for purchases. You can either set the payment option to none if you're from the US or add a credit card to it. This eases the payment option if you plan to buy apps from the store later. But in the case of downloading Yosemite, You will not be charged for anything.

Looks like that feature has been taken off. While not exactly the answer, CMD-I shows information about the selected song or disk. A workaround could be sort by Artist or Genre

In the end I figured out what the issue is. The problem is that the App I was trying to redeem on iPhone was designed for iPad only. But this show a couple of issues on the App Store (IMHO bugs): 1) These is not check and no diagnostic at all. App Store just downloads the App and then gives a generic error message saying "there was an error.... try again ...

As far as I am concerned, you can resort to a third-party to automatically find and add the album artwork for your songs. Fortunately I know a good program to achieve this. It is called Music Cleanup. The full version costs $29.95, but there's a free trial as well.

Never mind. This answer used to say new iTunes fixed this issue. It did for one synch. Now music is missing again. I guess it's time for de-duplication

executive summary: check to see if it's full I've been having this problem a lot lately, with OSX 10.9 and iTunes 11 on a 4th gen iPod Touch with iOS 6. I think there are a few contributors in my case, that seem to combine to stall it, often at "importing photos" or "preparing items" in step 8 (will stall for hours until I kill it). One issue is that when ...

The only method is this: Be prepared to LOSE ALL DATA, so do the proper backup. Turn off the iPhone. Push the Home button until the iTunes icon on the iPhone appears red. Connect it to your computer and do the restore. iTunes will, at this point, download the last official release of iOS. And, keep in mind, you will LOSE ALL DATA.

In my opinion, you can use a third-party tool to find and remove the duplicate songs in your iTunes. I once tried with a program called MUSIC CLEANUP. It helped me quickly find and delete all my duplicate songs at once.

This is for iTunes 11.4, but I think it's the same in 11.3 and other versions around here, for anyone looking. I had this issue too, because there isn't enough space on my iDevices to update in place. Open iTunes, make sure you're in "Library" and not the Store. At the top left there's a drop down menu, it defaults to "Music". Use it to select "Apps". ...

There's also the option of Family Sharing that Apple introduced in iOS 8. This allows you to share apps, music, and other purchases while still being able to maintain separate Apple ID's for other purposes.

You can contact Apple's VPP support team and explain the issue. They should be able to trace the previous code and provide a new one. The contact form is available here: https://www.apple.com/support/itunes/vpp/ (and they'll generally respond within 24 hours in my experience).

If you use the menu "File" -> "Get Info" when viewing one of the tracks, you can see if it is "part of a compilation" or not in the "Info" tab. "Compilation" albums are usually albums that have songs from more than a single artist or group, and they get handled differently by iTunes in a way that I have never really figured out. I work around this by ...

In iTunes on your computer you will need to select what music you want to sync.

I have a Canadian iTunes account and a USA iTunes account that I switch back an forth with on my MacOS X system - mostly because some iOS software is only available in one country or the other. Purchases from each account seem to be syncing just fine to my iPhone, so I assume it will work for books too.

This problem is related to the microswitch located at the very bottom inside the speaker jack. Whenever you get this problem, make sure your speaker cable is fully inserted into the speaker jack.
