Apple hosts a directory, Apple does not host the files of podcasts.
If you update the file of a podcast on your server, but do not indicate that you've updated it in your RSS feed, then only new downloaders will get the new file (obviously). If you update your RSS feed to indicate that there is a new file, then many podcast catchers will figure out they ...
I’m not sure how long it has been there, but the last three or more versions of Music/iTunes have lyrics display built in. When a song is playing, if it has lyrics installed, the lyric icon will be highlighted. Tap it, and the lyrics appear. When the next song starts, the lyrics will automatically change, too. Unfortunately, they don’t automatically ...
Oddly enough it is both more complicated and easier than it seems. Why? Because Apple wants you to do it their way, work-arounds sometimes fail and this is one of those times.
So, don't remove the iTunes library just reset it to default (inside Preferences > Music) mount your drive and then select the new location.
That should do it.
This approach requires only a macOS device, the iOS device and the device's power cord.
If you have the iOS paired to the macOS device through wi-fi, you don't need a power cord and can skip steps 1 and 2.
This approach was based on macOS Catalina v10.15.5 and may not apply for other versions of the OS.
Connect the iOS device to an USB port of your ...
I ended up option-opening Music and creating a new library in a directory on the same drive as the existing iTunes library. Then I unchecked “Organise music” in prefs and “Add[ed] to library...” all the files in the old library. Took a while, but worked.
It ends up that you need to use the Mac Finder UI to set the permissions of the whole user home directory and not just the Music directory. I was able to fix the issue using the following steps:
Opening Finder, navigate to my user/home directory (/Mac/Users/MYUSER) and show the "Get Info" pane
Open the "Sharing and Permissions" drop down
I believe the xml was for 3rd party support. The library file you want may not have an extension if you can't find an iTunes Library.itl file.
However, if your your goal is to just move the music and some of the meta-data about the tracks, then try drag and drop:
Open Music in one half of the screen (for reasons that will be obvious later, it makes it a ...
Assuming that you’re using parental controls on your child’s iPad, you can disable access to video content with the ratings of your choice. See here for Apple’s instructions on how to do so.
The current instructions (which may change, so following the link is preferable) are:
To restrict explicit content and content ratings:
Go to Settings and tap Screen ...
In most cases, unloading the rcd launchd job is probably the best answer, see: https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/273341/150839
However, I did not want to unload rcd completely, as I need it to control other applications such as QuickTime. I just wanted it to stop activating iTunes. So, I did an ugly hack:
Make a backup copy of /System/Library/CoreServices/...
At the end, I found I could transfer all my data by iCloud. By default, it shows transfer data of "last 30 days" only, but there's a small gray arrow at right, by clicking this you could choose "all data", and which works perfectly.
I'm answering this because it's the first result in Google and this is a more complete answer to the question title than exists in other Q&As I see.
To reliably remove "Comment" data, macOS file metadata "Where from" URLs, and all regular audio metadata for an audio file like mp3/m4a/m4b including embedded artwork:
