For those who haven't bothered looking into the new iTunes features and were wondering how to activate this particular feature...
Open iTunes, open Preferences, click on the "Store" tab and you will see checkboxes for Music, Apps, and Books.
I tried this out by "purchasing" a Free song of the week on my iPhone 4 and I saw it instantly start to download in iTunes too. Seamless, simple, fast. I also checked my iPad and the song was not there. So, this only puts new purchases into your iTunes library on your computer. It is not the syncing feature to all iOS devices. I think that is coming with iOS 5.64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

Yep, there is also no "Previously Purchased" on the iDevices yet except the playlist named Purchased which will only have in it, what you currently have on that device.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Interesting Last night I updated some stuff to the higher quality versions. Shortly after the downloads started I got notice on both the iPhone and iPad asking if I wanted to download the new stuff. Am I missing something?Sylvester Roque Former Contributing Editor About This Particular Macintosh
