This has since moved from iTunes to within the iBooks app, but the procedure is exactly the same: Open iBooks Click iBooks Store in top-left corner Click Purchased Click the x in the top-left corner of the book you want to hide And to unhide: Open iBooks Click iBooks Store in top-left corner Click Account Click Manage next to Hidden Purchases Click Unhide ...

You can remove the country code from the URL, so it reads http://itunes.apple.com/artist/nash-the-slash/id160526527. That gives you a valid iTunes URL, that if opened in a browser (that doesn't auto-open iTunes), appears to be the same as if the link were a US link. However when any iTunes link is opened in iTunes itself, it will attempt to redirect to the ...

Ultimately, I was able to stop iTunes from automatically downloading TV shows with the following steps: With iTunes open select iTunes > Preferences... and click the Store tab If checked, uncheck checkbox Always check for available downloads If checked, uncheck checkbox Download pre-orders when available Click the OK button, and close iTunes Remove the ...

This is by design. Apple requires you to set up an account even for free purchases (except podcasts). In the past, you could set up a free account in iCloud and get away with not entering information, but now the security is getting beefed up. You may be asked for three security questions and to re-verify your account periodically. The passwords are now ...

It's a known bug since the release of macOS 10.14.5. The blank window that shows up when you try to add an item to your library is actually supposed to contain new terms of service that you have to agree to, but it's bugged on macOS and just displays an empty page instead. The only solution right now seems to be to go to Apple Music on any of your iOS ...

You can use redeemed value from an iTunes gift card to buy from the following stores: iTunes music, movie and TV stores for iOS, Windows and Mac iBookstore on iOS App Store on iOS App Store on Mac OS The only gift cards that are accepted at an Apple Retail Store are Apple gift cards. The Apple Retail Stores and the Apple Store online do not accept iTunes ...

You need to select that you don't want a payment option on your account. Open the Settings app → scroll down to and tap on iTunes & App Stores. Tap View Apple ID → Payment Information. Select None as the payment type.

The TL;DR is your gift card can't be used this way. Your account is charged before the purchase is complete. If there is store credit available on your account, your credit card will not be charged. With no available credit on your account, your credit card will be charged.

I talked to Apple Support on the phone. They directed me to visit the url: https://www.apple.com/shop/browse/account/home Under "Account Settings", click "Shipping and billing". This brings you to a much older Apple website, still styled with aqua controls! https://secure1.store.apple.com/shop/account/setup_default I was able to add a new credit ...

Updated 17 Dec 2013. As reported by Macworld, the iBookstore now allows you to gift books: Gifting in the iBookstore works identically to Apple’s iTunes and App Store counterparts: Just choose the book you’d like to gift, then tap either the dropdown arrow next to the price (on a Mac) or the Share button (on an iOS device). More details are in their ...

If this was bought through the iBooks store, then things will stay in your purchase history for as long as they are available to download. You can try to contact Apple and explain that it was your brother that made the purchase on your account and you want it removed. Also, have your brother pay you back too. If this was just a web download then if you ...

Yes. Gift balances are preserved. In fact, I use a gift balance to avoid charging the family organizer for my primary Apple ID. I want to pay for my apps and be part of the family to share apps and calendars and reminders easily. This lets me use my Credit Card to buy gift cards (usually at a substantial discount from Costco) and/or use Apple Pay and ...

They are referring to the "Purchased" under the "Quick Links" section on the right of the iTunes Store Home Page. Once you do this "Songs of Innocence" will be added to your "Purchased" playlist on the left.

Quote from Apple's Support page about Gifting... "When you purchase an iTunes Gift, you must have a valid credit card on file; you can't purchase an iTunes Gift with store credit..." - http://support.apple.com/en-us/ht2736 So to simplify.. Apple charges the gifted item straight to your credit/debit card. NOT the credit on your account.

If you choose to do so, your friend will not be able to update apps without knowing your password. If you give your friend your password, they will then be able to shop for apps using your account. The other problem is that your friend may not be able to sync with his/her computer without erasing the apps. The last problem is Apple restricts each Apple ID ...

This is by design. A developer lists an app for one or more markets and when you lose past purchases, that indicates that that app was available in the old market and no longer is available in the new market. Have a look on the site, there are several threads on people deciding to switch countries or keep an old account. One is simpler and potentially ...

It's there for me both in iTunes and the iOS App Store (on an iPhone, don't have my iPad handy to test). That's in the Canadian store, FWIW. Things can and do vary by country, and for that matter by what CDN node you're connected to, so it may be different for others. Best advice is to wait it out and try again in a little while, in case there was a glitch ...

I think there is a better way to this, as it is described here: https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#qa/qa1633 You can use something like: http://appstore.com/<appname> for example, http://appstore.com/keynote

If I recall correctly, what you are planning to do may violate the ToC set but if you still insist, Apple's website highlights the following restrictions: Your Apple ID can have up to 10 devices and computers (combined) associated with it. Each computer must also be authorized using the same Apple ID. Once a device or computer is associated with your Apple ...

Most of the time, this means there is something wrong with you creditcard information. So do as told and contact iTunes to get rid of the message. With no screenshot or further information, it's hard for us to provide a solution.

No - an Apple ID is a unique string, so you can't enter the same letters for two as the first reserves that "email" and prevents a second account. You can have alases in one email account so that mails to more than one address get delivered to the same account. Google allows this with punctuation and arbitrary letters after a + in the email name. You can ...

Once she decides to sync the device once, the contents will still be removed. Your sister won't be able to back up the videos and music or sync it to her iCloud, but it should keep playing all the media for months to come. If she erases it or syncs it with a new computer - she can return it to you for a reload or just start fresh with her songs at that point....

It worked for me using iBooks on the Mac. Go to the iBooks store. Top left. Scroll all the way down and select "purchased" From here you should see the books. Hover over and click the X in the left side. Works in Sierra.

It sounds very much like the phone wasn't wiped & set up as your own new device. This means that you will need the old login data for everything you need to do on the phone - this is not good. You will need to get your cousin to make sure the phone is removed from his iCloud account, then you need to wipe it & start afresh. You will lose all ...

I traced the problem down to a TLS handshake (thanks to jonnydigitol below for the idea!) and a total of 63 packets between the host and 23.211.148.217, which is init.iTunes.apple.com - that is executed when iTunes is started. Once this handshake completes, all is fine and you can use iTunes. But you must tunnel traffic to this host on startup, otherwise you ...

Short answer No, purchases can not be transferred between Apple IDs. Alternative 1: Return/buy again If you intended to use your mother's account to buy the album you may try to return the item using iTunes on your computer (Store > My Account...). In case that you get a refund you can buy the album using the other Apple ID. Alternative 2: iCloud Family ...

Speaking from some experience -- Apple is pretty strict about this requirement, and will not look kindly on attempts to circumvent it. Do I just put a login screen on the app and then text below it that says "An account is required to use the app. Visit our website to register” Apple will probably object to the language "visit our website to register", ...

The App Store requires you to have a valid Apple ID (normally an e-mail address) in order to download any content from there. However, you do not need to add payment methods when following this guide: Create an iTunes Store, App Store, or iBooks Store account without a credit card or other payment method
