- If you use an AOL screen name to sign in to the iTunes Store, editing your information on the Apple Account Information page won't carry over to your AOL account. If you need to update your AOL account information, contact AOL.
- If your account information doesn't match your credit card, you may get a message stating "The credit card was declined."
- When you update your credit card number or billing address through the iTunes Store, any equivalent information you might use with iCloud, Apple Store online, iPhoto, or Aperture is also updated.
- The iTunes Store will place a minimal authorization hold on your credit card each time that you update your account information (equal to around 1 USD or your local currency equivalent). The authorization hold isn't a charge. The authorization hold is placed on your credit card to make sure that the information provided matches the information on file with your financial institution. The authorization hold won't appear in your iTunes Store purchase history.
