New computer? Here’s how to authorize it to play Apple purchases
Consumer technology, like everything in life, isn’t without its caveats. In the case of iTunes, these limitations restrict the number of computers you can authorize to five, meaning you can only play content on a total of five different computers at any one time. Authorization is vital, however, given it provides Mac and PC users permission to access any audiobooks, apps, books, movies, music, and other content tied to a specified Apple ID. Without proper authorization, you’ll likely be left banging your head on the keyboard as you wonder how you can access the digital copy of The Force Awakens you purchased on your iPhone SE.
