To be able to put music on iPhone via iTunes the first thing you need to do is make sure that the famous player is installed on your computer. In case the computer you use is a Mac, I have good news to tell you: iTunes is installed "as standard" and therefore for the moment you do not have to do anything. If, on the other hand, the computer in your possession is based on Windows you can check if iTunes is already installed by pressing the button Home and typing itunes in the search field. If iTunes appears among the avaelable programs… well, you don't have to do anything at all! The program is already installed and you can jump directly to the next step. If, on the other hand, iTunes does not appear among the avaelable programs, I invite you to read and follow the instructions contained in my guide on how to download iTunes to deal with it.

After making sure of the presence of iTunes on your computer, start the player by clicking on its icon, wait for the software window to be visible, then press the menu located in the upper left part of the software window and select the item Music, then click on the item iTunes Store present at the top right.



At this point you should see the iTunes Store home page with the list of the most interested albums of the moment. To browse the sales charts or the list of albums based on the genres of music, use the buttons and the items found in the upper part of the window, instead, to search for artists and songs directly, use the field ifarch which is located at the top right.

To download a song or album of interest, just click on the button next to the title and indicating the purchase price. After clicking on the button, enter any password referring to your Apple account, then wait for the procedure by which to load music from iTunes is first started and then completed.
