iTunes

iTunes looks and sounds better than ever.

iTunes Player. Where all your favourite stuff is just a click away.

The iTunes player keeps all your music, films and TV programmes all in one place. Instead of going through stacks and stacks of CDs, you can import them into iTunes and quickly browse your whole collection. Organise it any way you want. Move it onto any of your devices. Play it whenever — and wherever — the mood strikes. Even have Genius make mixes of songs that go great together.

Organise

With iTunes, it’s easy to get all your music organised. Any song or album you purchase from iTunes goes straight into your music library. And when you import your CDs, iTunes automatically adds the album, artist and song names, along with the album art. Then, with your whole collection to choose from, you can create the ultimate playlists for rocking out, working out or chilling out. You can also rate your songs with one to five stars, so it’s easy to find your favourites later.

Play

Just click to listen to your music, watch a film or TV programme, play a podcast or audiobook, or take in a lecture from iTunes U. With iTunes LP, you can also dive into lyrics and liner notes, watch videos and more. And selected films include iTunes Extras like behind-the-scenes footage, cast and crew interviews, and deleted scenes.

Not sure what you want to hear? Let shuffle decide. And when you need to make room on your screen for more than music, switch to the Mini Player. It’s big enough to let you see the songs that are coming up, search your entire collection and change the track order using Up Next. And small enough that it’s never in the way.

Genius

Genius can search your library to find songs that go great together, then organise them into genre-based mixes you’ll love. It can also put together Genius playlists. Just choose a song you like and select Start Genius. Genius finds songs with the same vibe and assembles a new playlist for you. When you expand an album in your library, you can also see In the Store recommendations for songs you don’t own yet — but should.

iTunes Store. Everything you want. And so much you didn’t even know you wanted.

The world’s No.1 music store is about much more than just music.1 Shop for films, TV programmes, apps, games and books. Load up on podcasts. And check out iTunes U, where you can download free lectures, videos and more from top universities, museums and other cultural institutions. The list goes on. And on.

Discover

iTunes has lots of ways to help you find content you’ll love. Top Charts. The free Single or App of the Week. The hand-picked Film and TV Programme of the Week. New music recommendations based on your past purchases. And so much more.

iTunes Everywhere. On your Mac or PC, iPad, iPhone, iPod and Apple TV.

iCloud makes iTunes even better, because your music, films, TV programmes, apps, books and more live not just on your computer, but on all your other devices too. Even music you haven’t purchased from iTunes can be stored in and played from iCloud, thanks to iTunes Match. So wherever you are, your favourite entertainment is always right there with you.
