What is iTunes?

iTunes makes it easy to play and organize music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and more.

Import your CD music collection into iTunes

Put an audio CD into your computer’s disc drive and click Import CD. iTunes automatically retrieves each song’s title, artist, and other information (you must be connected to the Internet to get this information).

Download music, video, and more

In iTunes, click iTunes Store and you can download songs, albums, movies, audiobooks, TV shows, podcasts, music videos, games, and more. The iTunes Store is always open and your selections download to your computer immediately.

Organize your media collection using playlists

Create your own music and video compilations. For example, create a playlist of your favorite songs or of songs perfect for an occasion, such as a birthday party.

Smart Playlists update automatically as your library changes. For example, if you create a Smart Playlist of songs by a particular artist, when you add new music by that artist, the songs are automatically added to the Smart Playlist.

Take your media library with you

Sync your iTunes library with your iPod or iPhone to take your collection with you wherever you go. If you have an iPod that supports video, you can watch movies and TV shows on your iPod.
