Download previous iTunes purchases on PC
If you previously purchased items from the iTunes Store, you can download them to your authorised computers and devices (up to 10 in total). Downloading previous purchases is a great way to add items to your devices without having to sync or copy files, and you can use this method to replace iTunes Store files you accidentally lost or deleted.
You can also check for purchases that haven’t been downloaded to your computer, or have iTunes check for them automatically. This is useful, for example, if a download is interrupted.
Note: Some types of previously purchased content might not be available in some countries or regions. Previous purchases may be unavailable if they’re no longer in the iTunes Store.
Download previous purchases to an authorised computer
In the iTunes app on your PC, choose Music from the pop-up menu in the top left, then click Store.
Click Purchased (below Quick Links) near the top right of the iTunes Store window.
Click Music, Movies, TV Shows or Audiobooks near the top right of the Purchased page.
Purchases available for download are displayed. You can view all your past purchases, or just the ones not currently in your iTunes library. Items already in your library aren’t available for download.
If you select Music, you can view your purchases by song, artist or album. If you view by album, click an album to see which songs are available to download.
To search for an item, type its name or a keyword in the search field, then press Enter.
To download an item, click its iCloud Download button .
To find out how to download previous purchases to your device, see the user guide for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. For a device that doesn’t use the latest version of iOS or iPadOS, get the user guide from the Apple Support Manuals website.
