Access All iTunes Store Content Purchases via iCloud

As soon as you create an iCloud account using your Apple ID and password, all previous, current, and future content purchases from the iTunes Store, iBookstore, App Store, and Newsstand are automatically saved within your iCloud account. This includes your music, TV show episodes, movies, audiobooks, ringtones, eBooks, apps, and digital publications.

Using the iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks, or Newsstand apps, you can then access previous purchases that were acquired using the same Apple ID, regardless of which of your Macs or iOS mobile devices originally accessed the content. The storage of your iTunes Store and related content purchases within your iCloud account happens automatically, and this does not utilize any of the 5GB of free online storage space that’s provided to you by Apple.

From within Settings, it’s possible to turn on the Automatic Downloads option, which allows your iPad to automatically download music, apps, and app updates, regardless of which Mac or iOS mobile device (that’s also linked to your iCloud account) that the content was purchased on. To turn on this feature, launch Settings; tap on the iTunes & App Store option; and then from the iTunes & App Store submenu turn on the virtual switches associated with Music, Apps, and/or Updates that are displayed under the Automatic Downloads heading.
