Back Up Your iDe­vice to Your Com­puter

If back­ing up your con­tent wire­lessly with iCloud doesn't make you feel se­cure enough, you can also store a lo­cal backup on your com­puter via iTunes. To do this, con­nect your de­vice to your com­puter via a USB port and boot up iTunes (if you're a PC user, you'll need to down­load the soft­ware first). An icon for your de­vice will ap­pear in the up­per left cor­ner. Click on the icon and then se­lect This Com­puter from the op­tions listed. Now your de­vice will au­to­mat­i­cally be backed up when plugged in. Even if you choose to con­tinue us­ing iCloud, you can man­u­ally back up to your com­puter via iTunes by se­lect­ing Back Up Now. Change the Card As­so­ci­ated with iTunes

If you use a credit or debit card to shop on­line—and most of us do—then you un­der­stand how te­dious it can be to up­date mul­ti­ple ac­counts when you get a new card. Luck­ily, you can change or up­date the credit card you use to make iTunes and App Store pur­chases all in one place. To change your credit card in­for­ma­tion, go to Set­tings > iTunes & App Store and then tap on your Ap­ple ID at the top. A popup screen will ask what you would like to do. Tap View Ap­ple ID and log in. You can then tap on Pay­ment In­for­ma­tion to up­date your credit card and billing in­for­ma­tion.

Maybe you're not ready to buy those songs you love in iTunes, but you do want to save them to pur­chase later. Well, in iTunes you can eas­ily do that by cre­at­ing a Wish List. To add a song to your Wish List, open iTunes on your com­puter and se­lect iTunes Store. Find the song, al­bum, or artist you want to add. Click the ar­row listed next to the price but­ton, and se­lect Add to Wish List. Now you can view your Wish List any time you want by click­ing My Wish List un­der your Mu­sic side­bar or on the iTunes store app on your iDe­vice by tap­ping the list icon in the up­per right cor­ner. Re­deem a Gift Card in the iTunes or App Store

Although re­deem­ing an iTunes Gift Card or us­ing an app code might not be the most in­tu­itive process, it's in­cred­i­bly easy once you know where to look. First, scroll to the bot­tom of iTunes and tap Re­deem. You'll be prompted to en­ter your Ap­ple ID pass­word. Choose to ei­ther scan your card or en­ter your code man­u­ally and then tap Re­deem. Like­wise, you can open the App Store and scroll to the bot­tom of the Fea­tured tab page. Tap Re­deem and en­ter your Ap­ple ID pass­word. Again, choose ei­ther to scan your card or en­ter your code man­u­ally and tap Re­deem. Your gift credit will then be avail­able to spend!
