CHAPTER 5 Multimedia Sync, Load, and Stream Before you can enjoy your music, photos, videos, and books, you must first get them onto your device. There are two ways to do this: You can download content directly onto your device, or sync it with iTunes. Once you’ve gotten your music, movies, and apps onto your iPhone, you can then stream them to your Apple TV, AirPort Express, or wireless speaker system. Purchase and Download Content on the Go Whether your media library is primarily comprised of items you’ve purchased from the iTunes Store in the past or you’re starting fresh, it’s easy to access your content on your iPhone 5. Your device has three separate apps for purchasing new items and redownloading old content: the App Store, iTunes, and iBooks. APP STORE This app is designed to let you browse, view screenshots and ratings, download updates, and purchase apps—all on the fly. Due to cellular carrier restrictions, you have to connect your iPhone to a Wi-Fi network to download apps bigger than 50MB. (For more on the App Store, see “Download More Apps” in the “Get Started” chapter.)

CHAPTER 5 Multimedia iTUNES To find more music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks, head to this app. Tap it to access an iPhone-size version of the iTunes Store, replete with its full catalog. Along the bottom of the screen are buttons for each major section: Music, Movies, TV Shows, Search, and More. MUSICALLY INCLINED Listen to 90-second previews of any song from the iTunes Store, and purchase albums on the go. The Music tab features the latest albums, songs, and featured artists in the store, along with options to redeem iTunes Store codes and change your login information. A Genres button in the top left lets you browse by types of music, while two tabs at the top divide the store into Featured and Charts. The Movies and TV Shows tabs similarly sport Genres, Featured, and Charts options. The Search tab offers a simple search bar at the top for finding content. The More tab holds a list of everything you can’t fit on that bottom toolbar: Purchased allows you to view and download any purchases you’ve made with your Apple ID; Audiobooks and Tones let you browse and purchase those types of content; Genius—when enabled—offers intelligent suggestions about content you might like based on what you’ve purchased in the past; and Downloads allows you to see what you’re downloading right now. iBOOKS You can download and read ebooks on your iPhone from Apple’s iBookstore, which you can get to by downloading the iBooks app from the App Store. 239 Click here to buy the full 323-page “MacworldiPhone 5 Superguide” for only $12.99!
