My kids have downloaded tons of free games apps from iTunes.  I need to free some iCloud space without having to upgrade my account.  How do I delete those apps in the cloud?

Apps can't be deleted from iCloud as they only reside in the App store.  Also, the apps themselves aren't taking up space in your iCloud account.  They only thing in your iCloud account would be the app data that is backed up as part of their iCloud backup, but this generally doesn't use much space.  You can check how much is being used, and eliminate specific apps from being included in the backup, by going to Settings>iCloud>Storage & Backup>Manage Storage on their device, tapping the name of their device under Backups, then checking the apps listed under Backup Options (tap Show All Apps to see them all).  Turn an app to Off to exclude its app data from being backed up.

  • I bought a Sandisk Connect Media Drive, downloaded the app from iTunes.  Before iOS 8, movies played fine.  After iOS upgrade I can no longer play movies downloaded from iTunes to the media drive.  Anyone else have a similar issue?

    I bought a Sandisk Connect Media Drive, downloaded the app from iTunes.  Before iOS 8, movies played fine.  After iOS upgrade I can no longer play movies downloaded from iTunes to the media drive.  Anyone else have a similar issue?

    I checked with SanDisk's own online support and they indicate that they have notified Apple of the issue.
    According to SanDisk, the problem lies with Apple not having the iOS 8 version of the Safari browser having DRM decoding enabled that the Media Drive relies upon to decode and play iTunes DRM titles. Non DRM encoded videos will play in the browser.
    DRM audio is not effected as this is handled by the native iOS music app.
    As of the date of this post SanDisk have not been given a timeframe by Apple for this issue to be resolved.
    I hope that Apple resolves this issue quickly as I have a large collection of DRM video titles on a 128Mb memory card installed in the Media Drive that I am unable to view.

  • How can I delete songs stored in the Cloud but without deleting them from my mac?

    How can I delete songs stored in the Cloud but without deleting them from my mac?

    You can do it, but you need another library signed in to iTunes match. That second library shouldn't have any local files stored.
    Delete the entry from that second library and it will ask you to confirm that you want to remove the file from the cloud. Confirm that you do.
    Now, as long as you don't delete the file from your main library it will have an iCloud status of "removed" and won't be in the cloud or try add it again.
    However, if you sign out of match on that computer and then sign in again it will then re-add it to the cloud, so this isn't a method to use if you tend to turn match on and off much.
    I have had the Beatles Mono albums in my main library, but not in the cloud, for a while now without any problems.

  • I have downloaded a movie which I brought from itunes. It appears in my ipod class movie menu but it won't playic

    I have downloaded a movie which I brought from itunes. It appears in my ipod classic movie menu but it won't play. I try to update and or restore my ipod but I just keep getting a message saying that I need to connect to the internet which I am and am contected to the itunes store. I try to use the itunes self help support thing but keep getting the message that my ipod serial number is incorrect when it is the serial number which is on my ipod. Any ideas?

    Hey mlf141,
    I see that you have rented a movie on your iOS device and now would like to watch it on your computer. I have an article with information for you dealing with this scenario, and it can be found below:
    About renting movies from the iTunes Store - Apple Support
    http://support.apple.com/en-is/HT201611
    If you rented the movie on your computer, but want to watch it on an iOS device, connect the devices and sync using USB. When you move a rented movie from your computer, it will disappear from your computer’s iTunes library. You can move the movie between devices as often as you want, but you can only have it on one device at a time.
    If you rented the movie on your iOS device or Apple TV, you can’t move it to any other device.
    Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities!

  • Too many apps - how do I delete those not on the 11 pages?

    I have way too many apps & my space is almost all used up. I know how to delete apps from the 11 pages of 20 apps each. I know how to access my extra apps from the search iPad page but how do I delete some of those apps where I have to type them in to find them? Many thanks.

    Probably easier to delete them in bulk in iTunes and then resync your iPad?

    Ipod touch will sync with one computer at a time.  If you sync to another then it will erase the current content and replace with content from the new computer.

    Try Deauthorize your account and then Authorize the account to see if any changes occur. Also there may a resolution in the second article that can be helpful as well.

  • I'm trying to get itunes up and running on new computer. I have lots of music I've purchased from Itunes...and they show in my account.  But only some of them have the cloud next to them.  The rest say "downloaded" and it won't let me download them again.

    I believe that all audiobooks are supplied to Apple by audible.com, so I assume that it's them requiring the one-time only download. This is the link for contacting iTunes Support : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page, then Purchases, Billing & Redemption

  • HT4943 I just tried to download a free sample of a newsstand- supported magazine I have not used before--the app is downloaded already. I get a message saying I need to free up space. I have two other mag apps with a total of 3 issues. What am I doing wro

    I just tried to download a free sample of a magazine and received a message saying I need to free up space. The app is newsstand supported and I subscribe to 2 other magazines with a sum total of 3 issues. What am I doing wrong here. Do I need to add more memory space allotted to newsstand, and if so, how? Many thanks.

    The GB size of the download file is the compressed size (like .zip or .dmg). When the file is installed/uncompressed it can be 2-3 times larger.
    How much space is Other using? You may be able to reduce.
    How Do I Get Rid Of The “Other” Data Stored On My iPad Or iPhone?
    http://tinyurl.com/85w6xwn
    With an iOS device, the “Other” space in iTunes is used to store things like documents, settings, caches, and a few other important items. If you sync lots of documents to apps like GoodReader, DropCopy, or anything else that reads external files, your storage use can skyrocket. With iOS 5/6, you can see exactly which applications are taking up the most space. Just head to Settings > General > Usage, and tap the button labeled Show All Apps. The storage section will show you the app and how much storage space it is taking up. Tap on the app name to get a description of the additional storage space being used by the app’s documents and data. You can remove the storage-hogging application and all of its data directly from this screen, or manually remove the data by opening the app. Some applications, especially those designed by Apple, will allow you to remove stored data by swiping from left to right on the item to reveal a Delete button.

    Upgrading to Snow Leopard, Lion, or Mountain Lion
    You can upgrade to Mountain Lion from Lion or directly from Snow Leopard. Mountain Lion can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $19.99. To access the App Store you must have Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later installed.
    You can purchase Snow Leopard by contacting Customer Service: Contacting Apple for support and service - this includes international calling numbers. The price is $19.99 plus tax. You will receive physical media - DVD - by mail.
    Third-party sources for Snow Leopard are:
    Snow Leopard from Amazon.com

    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store.
    You can purchase Lion by contacting Customer Service: Contacting Apple for support and service - this includes international calling numbers. The cost is $19.99 (as it was before) plus tax.  It's a download. You will get an email containing a redemption code that you then use at the Mac App Store to download Lion. Save a copy of that installer to your Downloads folder because the installer deletes itself at the end of the installation.
    Be sure your computer meets the minimum requirements:
    Apple - OS X Mountain Lion - Read the technical specifications.
    Macs that can be upgraded to OS X Mountain Lion
      1. iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)

  • HT1349 How do I permanently delete crap that my kids have downloaded onto my itunes?

    How do I permanently delete crap that my kids have downloaded onto my itunes? It's synced with my phone now too. I just want to listen to the albums I've purchased and the cds I've downloaded. Help. Please.

    When you delete one or more of your purchases from your library you should get an option to Hide purchases from iTunes in the Cloud. Selecting this option should prevent the items from appearing as cloud links or in the purchased section of the iTunes Store, however should you later change your mind you can visit your account and use the Manage hidden purchases link to restore them.
