MacDailyNews Note: With iCloud, you can have iTunes automatically download new music purchases to all your devices the moment you tap Buy. You can also access past music, movie, and TV show purchases from any of your devices — wirelessly and without syncing. And whenever you play a movie, TV episode, podcast, iTunes U lesson, or audiobook on one device, all your other devices will automatically remember where you left off. Just sign in to the iTunes Store with your Apple ID. Learn more here.
