Access All Of Your iTunes, App Store, iBookstore and Newsstand Purchases Through iCloud
Yet another way your new iPad can utilize your free iCloud account is to give you ongoing access to all of your iTunes, App Store, iBookstore, and Newsstand content purchases. Above and beyond the 5GB of free online storage space Apple includes with every iCloud account for your personal data, as much additional online storage space that’s needed to store all of your past, present, and future content purchases from any of Apple’s online businesses is provided for free.
Regardless of which iOS device or computer a song, album, TV show episode, movie, eBook, or audiobook, for example, was purchased on, you can access it via your iCloud account and enjoy it on your new iPad (again, as long as an Internet connection is available).
For content with a large file size, such as a TV show episode or movie, you’ll need to use a Wi-Fi Internet connection to download or access this iTunes purchased content from your iCloud account. However, a 3G or 4G connection can be used to access your iTunes digital music library, eBooks, digital publications, or most purchased apps, for example.
For an additional fee of $24.99 per year, in addition to your iTunes music purchases being made available to you via your iCloud account, your entire digital music library, regardless of how that music was acquired, can be accessed from iCloud on all of your iOS devices, Macs, and Apple TV devices that are linked to the same iCloud account.
