Apple introduces new versions and updates to iTunes several times every year, and you can stay up to date with these new versions by using the program's internal options. Although downloading external updates or new versions from the Internet may erase your music and video library, downloading from within the system itself will keep your catalogue intact. Set up takes just minutes.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Launch your iTunes player on your desktop and select the "Help" tab from the upper iTunes menu bar.

  2. 2

    Select "Check for Updates" in the "Help" menu and allow a few seconds for the program to load the new version.

  3. 3

    Click "Download iTunes" in the pop-up window.

  4. 4

    Click "Install" in the next pop-up menu and accept the conditions of the download. Your download may take as long as 30 minutes, depending on the speed of your computer.
