Part 10. Getting an iLife > Buying New Songs Through iTunes

Buying New Songs Through iTunes

In iTunes, click Music Store in the Source column.

Click Sign In.

Type your Apple ID and password and click Sign In.

If you haven't bought songs before, a dialog box tells you that this ID hasn't been used with the Music Store; click Review.

INTRODUCTION

The iTunes Music Store offers thousands of tunes in all genres at very reasonable prices. You can download entire albums or one song at a time. Your purchases are charged to your credit card, and the songs are downloaded directly into iTunes, where you can play them on your computer, transfer to them to an iPod, or burn them to a CD.


TIP

Getting an iTunes Account

If you already have an Apple ID, you're all set—just enter that username and password to sign in to the iTunes Music Store. If you have a paid subscription to .Mac, use that username and password for the Music Store. If you don't have either, follow the Music Store's prompts to create a new ID and supply your credit card information for purchases.


Read the Terms and Conditions and click Agree; then click Done.

Click a song or album title to see more information about it.

Click Buy Song or Buy Album to purchase music.

Click Buy. The song downloads into iTunes and appears in a new playlist called Purchased Music.
