iTunes is a piece of software that plays and stores media, and lets you sync your media collection to a portable device, like an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. It most compares to Windows Media Player, and was developed by Apple Inc.
Many people assume that, because you can’t use the iTunes app on an Android phone, you can’t download the program on a non-Apple computer. This is actually wrong – you can download and install the latest version of iTunes for Windows 10 and use it just as you would on a Mac. This guide will teach you exactly how to do this.
On your address bar, type in https://support.apple.com/downloads/itunes. You can also visit Google or your search engine of choice and type in “iTunes”, then click on the top result, which will take you onto Apple’s iTunes download page. Here, you can choose from a number of downloads depending on your operating system. In this review, we will be downloading iTunes for Windows 10, but just click on your operating system to download the right version for you.
You’ll be taken onto Microsoft’s website after selecting Windows as your option. Click “Get”, and the Microsoft Store app will open. Click “Get” again to download iTunes from the Microsoft Store, and wait for the program to finish downloading. This will take several minutes from start to finish.
To complete the install of iTunes, search for the app by searching “iTunes” into your Windows Start bar. Click the app to open. This will bring you onto a software license agreement for iTunes on Windows. Click “Agree” to complete the install. A “Welcome” page will appear, and you can either click “Go to the iTunes Store” or “Sign in” – you can also click to create an account if you’ve never used the app before. If you’re a complete newbie to this software, you can use Apple Support to find answers to the questions you may have, but it’s fairly self-explanatory to use. Click “Library” to view your library, “Browse” to browse options, “For You” for suggestions based on your library, and so on.
If you have an Android phone, you won’t be able to get the iTunes app, but you can still view your stored media on the Apple Music app. You’ll be able to stream your whole iTunes library from your PC by simply logging into your Apple Account.
