Why icloud and itunes are separated?

It's confusing to me and seems that their products would be more user-friendly if everything was in one place. Come on apple, after all, 2016...

Because they are different things for different purposes.

Why exactly do you think they should be together?  and how should be together?

In addition, he is a user to user forum, Apple isn't here.

    Welcome to the Apple community.

    I'm afraid that is what happens when you share an Apple ID.

    Ideally you should each have your own ID and use family share for share purchases, but at least you would be better to have your own ID's for everything except iTunes.

    I suspect that your problem is that you share an ID for FaceTime, you must either stop this or make sure that you have only and that your caller ID is only your phone number.

  • Icloud and itunes on Win10 installation error

    I can't install iCloud or iTunes on my Windows 10. I have read all the troubleshooting and tried all of the suggestions that I have chosen, but have had no success. The error message is:

    There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the Setup did not finish as expected. Contact your provider to support personal or package.

    It's just my home/personal computer, so I don't have any support staff or the packaging of the contact seller. I am at a loss of what to do next (and am also new to using an iPhone, so maybe I'm just confused) and I would sincerely appreciate any guidance anyone can give me.

    Thank you!

  • SE ICloud and Itunes-Iphone

    My Iphone SE does not allow me to accept the new terms of iCloud does not give me an option. It appers a windows that give me the options to see the conditions, but as I select take me to ICloud settings and there is nothing about the conditions.

    iOS9 on a mobile device requires iTunes 12.3 or higher, which in turn requires a computer running OSX 10.8.5 or higher.  Update of the system only checks the updates for the current version of the system you run, but that itself can be updated.  It may or may not be possible to upgrade your computer to the system requirements. Find your computer on the web site of http://www.everymac.com model and near the bottom of the specification of the system section, he will tell what versions of the operating system, it is able to run. If you can not run a newer system, you will not be able to sync this phone to your current computer. If she can run 10.8.5 or higher, you can either buy a download for Apple OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion code online, or you can try to install the free El Capitan OSX 10.11.  El Capitan can run slower on older machines and require the additional purchase of RAM.  Making a big jump in versions of system is also more likely to affect the old software.

  • iCloud and iTunes does not work, help me

    Hello world!

    Since yesterday, I have a lot of problems on my macbook pro:

    I found this malware with Avast: MacOS: AMC - X [PUP] and I removed it.

    Then I upgraded the operating system for this version: OS X El Capitan 10.11.3.

    Restarted the computer, iTunes and iCloud began to crash, and the only thing I could do was to force their closure.

    I thought that the problem was the software update, so I connected to Apple's site and downloaded and installed again.

    I also noticed that iTunes works properly when my internet connection is disabled.

    I don't really know how to handle this situation.

    Can someone help me please?

    Try to uninstall Avast.

  • Backup both iCloud and Mac iOS devices?

    I went to a Genius Bar appointment today where the genius told me I can't back up my devices iOS by connected directly to my Mac. He said that the backup to iCloud over wifi is the same thing and I need to do both. He said if I've changed devices, I could do the restoration completely to iCloud, I don't have to restore from a Mac or time Machine.

    Can it be true? What applications I, who hold their own data? Can I count on iTunes store up to iCloud?

    Secondly, whenever I plug in my device iOS directly on my mac, iTunes/Photos wonder if I want to import a large number of photos, and then I end up with duplicates in my library of Photos.

    Of course, it is true. Since the launch of iCloud, Apple gives you the ability to save your iCloud or your like before Mac iOS devices. The advantage to backup your iPhone to iCloud, is that a backup is performed automatically when you load your iPhone and it is connected to a Wi - Fi network. See-> about backups in iCloud and iTunes - Apple Support

    Note that you can do iCloud backups backups and iTunes at the same time if you wish. When you plug your iPhone to your Mac, iTunes will keep the possibility to make a local backup if you want to.

    Regarding your second question, I suggest to create a second thread with it, so that you don't mess this thread with different themes. This will allow people with the same issue find the answer quickly.

  • ITunes is separating the artists and albums! ID3 are correct...

    I updated my Itunes to this week on my Windows 10. A week before I organized my music library so I know perfectly how to treat the ID3 tags and how to fix it when Itunes is separating an album or artist. But since I updated the version that I have a lot of bugs, Itunes separates almost everything! When I add a new song (not on Itunes store but outside source) of an artist that I have in my library, it is not added to the artist was, but create a new section of aritst, with exactly the same artist name / sometimes it says "unknown aritst" instead, even if the the aritst ID3 tag is correct. I tried to play with the tags, but nothing helped. Another bug is when you edit the tags of some songs by the artist and manually write the tag Album name to get the songs separated by albums - in this case, Itunes is separating each song a new section of the artist, and all have the same aritst name & album!

    I'm crazy and I really need help to fix it somehow, I want my library will organize
