The world of music is constantly changing. Vinyl, cassettes, CDs, and now MP3s – and that means that we’ve gone from analog to digital. The best thing about digital music, in my opinion, is that you can purchase it in full online without ever leaving the seat of your desk. But the latest question in online music purchases is – where?
Thanks to the outcome of a class-action lawsuit over Apple’s old rules for in-app purchases, Apple customers can now submit refund claims for iTunes credit. The credit is offered as compensation for Apple’s previous iOS system for in-app purchases, where a system security flaw allowed children to rack up thousands of dollars in iTunes purchases, much to the surprise of parents.
Apple announced updates to its iTunes Store recently, which now includes the option to download movies, movie bundles, music box sets, TV episodes, and Season Passes at a later time, rather than immediately at the time of purchase. The new “download later” options apply to items purchased on iTunes 11 (Mac or Windows PC versions), or on iOS devices running iOS 6 or later. When you purchase an item it will be added to your iTunes account, followed by a “Download Now?” button giving you the option to download immediately or later.
This time the rumours are true. Many of the lost Dr Who episodes have been found, remastered, and are on Apple iTunes right now, ready for you to buy.
