Updating my itunes library
Furthermore, i Pod owners can access Apple's i Tunes Music Store via the software, making purchasing media and adding it immediately to your media library, a one-click process.This may have put the nail in the coffin with itunes..IMHO the worse piece of sh.t software developed ever..they added cloud services but totally messed up everything else, and no album view..gone. The new interface is so far from intuitive that its a joke. The Search function tries to search as you type in each letter rather than waiting for you to type the name/album/artist and then pressing return. Also, we have lost the ability to set an album/playlist as "gapless".If you’ve used i Tunes on your new computer already, close i Tunes and move your media to a new folder.This will keep anything you added to your new computer separate from your old library.You can use IPSW files on Mac or Windows, both require i Tunes to work properly.To use the latest version of IPSW firmware files to update or restore an i OS device, you’ll want to be sure you have the latest version of i Tunes installed as well.
On i Phone and i Pad, the i Tunes Store and App Store apps are updated automatically with system updates.Going the IPSW route can take longer to update than using the newer OTA (over the air) method, the reason being that OTA uses smaller delta updates than the larger IPSW files, which are the full sized downloads and are often literally 10x the download size.You can also click on “Restore” and select an IPSW instead but you will lose the existing files and settings on your i OS device.IPSW stands rather simply for i OS Software, and IPSW files are basically just individual firmware downloads for specific i OS devices.These files can be used to update i OS devices manually with the help of i Tunes.
