> As­so­ci­ated de­vices

Mac|Life - - FEATURE -

For iTunes to play con­tent from the iTunes Store, your Mac must be as­so­ci­ated with your Ap­ple ID. You can have up to 10 de­vices as­so­ci­ated with your Ap­ple ID and iTunes Store ac­count at any time, though no more than five Macs or PCs.

This can be prob­lem­atic, as over time you might as­so­ciate dif­fer­ent de­vices with your Ap­ple ID. To check how many you have, make sure you’re con­nected to the in­ter­net, then open iTunes and choose Ac­count > View My Ac­count.

When your ac­count info ap­pears, find the “iTunes in the Cloud” head­ing and click Man­age De­vices there. This will re­veal a list of any iOS de­vices, Macs, and PCs that are linked to your Ap­ple ID, which grants those de­vices the abil­ity to au­to­mat­i­cally down­load iTunes and App Store pur­chases, or to re­down­load past pur­chases. Click Remove next to any de­vice you no longer use. You should also do this if you’re sell­ing or giv­ing away your Mac.

To add a new Mac or PC, in iTunes choose Ac­count > Autho­riza­tions > Autho­rize This Com­puter. En­ter your Ap­ple ID’s pass­word; af­ter a few mo­ments you’ll see a con­fir­ma­tion.
