The short answer is Apple iOS does not expose the data you are seeking in the filesystem. The album data is inside a sandboxed location and not exposed. Some of the metadata is embedded in the image files, and another answer shows how to begin scraping that just from the photo images located in the open portion of the filesystem. The sanctioned and also ...

In this article, I'll answer the question on how to examine photo metadata with the exiftool. There is the apple supplied sips command. man sips $ sips -g format /Users/mac/Desktop/rockSlab.JPG /Users/mac/Desktop/rockSlab.jpg format: jpeg I give an example of exiftool for use on a mac. The use of exiftool on Windows command line will be the same. ...

To solve your problem, just simply go into iTunes with your device connected, and click the little icon of a phone below the play/pause button. (The icon at the bottom right corner of picture) Once in that page, scroll down to the "Options" and uncheck "Automatically sync when this device is connected. If the "Sync with this device over Wi-Fi" is on, you ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_iTunes#Devices This is not an official apple document but it works. Also, since you don't have any query about any other iOS or iTunes version, answer is link-only.

The track name is taken from the metadata (or, if there isn't any, from the filename) of the tracks during import. So if after the import you end up with the track number in the title this was already encoded in the file itself. To remove, either edit each title after the import or pick an appropriate script from Doug's AppleScripts for iTunes.

As a troubleshooting step I would start with booting into Safe Mode to see if the behaviour is replicated there, and also to see if the behaviour continues again afterwards when you've logged back in normally.

The errors you cite doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the problem you're encountering. 10.10 (Yosemite) is nearly five major OS revisions old now... I assume being run because your machines no longer support newer operating systems? All I can really suggest is that you make sure each of the machines are running 10.10.5 and all supplemental ...

The music available on the iPhone is not shown in the iTunes when you click on the iPhone icon in the iTunes toolbar. The music should be present in your iTunes library (if you originally synced it from iTunes to your iPhone). This is by design and how syncing music from iTunes to iPhone works. You need to connect your iPhone to the computer with iTunes ...

As of macOS Catalina, this is done directly in Finder. When your phone is connected to the computer, it shows up in the Finder sidebar under the "Locations" section. (If you don't see it, make sure it is checked under Finder settings, which you can get to with command-comma.) Under this tab, option-click the "Restore" button and choose the .ipsw file.

CDA files are not song files, it's just a shortcut. It doesn't contain any song information, so you can't convert it to other formats. You need to import cd into a usable format using iTunes on the computer that owns the disc drive. ======= Note that macOS sees them as "exec" files just because it does not recognize the file type and does not know what ...

Please check that the iTunes Store is not disabled in the Restrictions pane in iTunes preferences (see screenshot below). App Store functionality has been removed in iTunes 12.7 and later. Apple provides a version of iTunes which still contains the App section and App Store. Please see https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208079 for more info and download ...

Inspired by @Andrew Kozelski's approach, I created a UNIX shell script oneliner that achieves a similar result. This might be useful if like me you run iTunes and Windows inside a VM but do everything else in Linux. (Same as the above first two steps on Windows) Get your Voice Memos into a playlist and export it as a text file (say, "playlist.txt"). Drag ...

This solution didn't work for me at first. My iPhone is in German, and the German terms of service would not load. After trying a few times, the English terms loaded, which I accepted. Not sure why that happened, but you may have to temporarily change languages if this issue persists for you.

A Combination of AppleScript (or Shell Scripting if you are so inclined), along with a command line tool like id3v2 should do the trick. You can build id3v2 from source: http://id3v2.sourceforge.net Or use MacPorts or HomeBrew to do the building and installation for you. Once you have it installed you can view the help page by typing in "id3v2 ah" from the ...

You can items to iTunes then they will appear in your iTunes library. In the iTunes app on your Mac, choose File > Add to Library. Locate a file or folder, then click Open. If you add a folder, all the files it contains are added to your library.

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 could use another app (such as iMazing 2, AnyTrans, TunesGo... you can find a nice comparative here) to get files from your friend´s phone into your computer. And then, you just have to add them manually to iTunes.
