iTunes is a proprietary digital media player application, used for playing and organizing digital music and video files. The application is also an interface to manage the contents on Apple's popular iPod and other digital media players such as the iPhone and iPad. Additionally, iTunes can connect to the iTunes Store via the Internet to purchase and download music, music videos, television shows, iPod games, audiobooks, podcasts, feature length films and movie rentals (not available in all countries), and ringtones (only used for iPhone). It is also used to download applications for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad running iOS 2.0 or later.

iTunes was introduced by Apple Inc. on January 9, 2001, at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco. At Apple's September 2009 "Rock and Roll" keynote, iTunes 9 was announced. iTunes's latest version is 12.3.3, which adds support for the iPhone SE and iPad Pro.

iTunes is available as a free download for Mac OS X v10.8.5 or later and Windows 7 or later from Apple's website.
