No matter which Apple device you use, iTunes has always been the core of it. iTunes may appear like a complicated suite for managing Apple devices but it’s super simple to use if you learn about the interface. iTunes does not just act as a music player, but it is used to control your Apple device where you can create and restore backups, organize your playlists, monitor device storage and do a lot more stuff.
With each new version of iTunes, the interface and features keep getting better and better. And if you’re an Apple maniac, mastering iTunes will always act as a plus. Here are a few iTunes tips and tricks that will allow you to make the most of this service.
So, without wasting any further minute let’s see how we can master iTunes within no time.
Most of us use iTunes for creating and organizing our playlists. So, in this case, iTunes Up Next feature can be a great option. If you’re not in a mood to create a whole new playlist or don’t feel like listening to every song in the list, the Up Next feature on iTunes is a useful alternative. You can hover over your music library and tap the three dots icon next to the song name. Now select the “Add to Up Next” option. Repeat the same process and pick all the songs you like to add to “Up Next” queue so that you can listen to your favorite songs according to your mood.
Make Use of Comments
Remember Gmail labels? Adding labels is a great way of searching effectively within your inbox. Well, you can so the same on iTunes as well. In the song info section, you may have completely ignored the comments section, but it may prove out to be super useful while you’re searching for anything particular. You can add some creative comments in the song info window, so that iTunes can display faster results when you’re searching through your music, movies, and TV shows.
If you don’t want your iTunes library to be clogged with some random artworks, you can upload your own artwork to the song or album. All you have to do is, go to song info and then select “Artwork” tab. Here tap the “Add Artwork” button and upload an artwork of your own to represent your favorite song or album.
Rather than organizing your apps on iPhone or iPad, you can use iTunes instead. Whether you want to add or remove apps, arrange their screen placement or drag the apps, it’s all super easy on iTunes. Select your iPhone name and then head on to “Apps” section where you can easily organize the apps on your device and reposition them just the way you like it.
Look for Duplicates
Finding and removing duplicate files is an overhead for sure! Well, not on iTunes. Tap on the File menu, select “library” and then tap on “Show Duplicate Items” so that you can easily detect all the duplicate songs without having to manually scroll the entire song list.
Copy Songs to Non-iOS devices
Android and iOS are not compatible enough, right? But yes, if you wish to copy songs from your iTunes library to an Android device, it’s a piece of cake. First, plug the Android device to your system. Now open the iTunes music library, press Control + A to select all songs and then Control + C to copy all songs and them paste these song tracks to your Android device by pressing Control + V key combination. This is one of the fastest ways of copying songs to a non-iOS device via iTunes.
