Q: “I’m an enthusiastic rock music fan, and I like to purchase music from iTunes. Everything is perfect until I update my iPhone 6 to iOS 9 yesterday, there are some errors during the updating, and I lost everything on my phone as well as my music! Is there any way to get them back without purchase again, please help!”

Backing up your iTunes Store purchases is extremely important. That’s because there are kinds of accidents that may cause the loss of your music and other files. Thanks to Apple iCloud service, there is still the possibility to get your lost music back.

Now, with iCloud, virtually every song, app, TV show, movie, or book you’ve purchased at iTunes is stored in your iTunes account and is available to redownload onto any compatible device. Let’s check this tutorial and get some quick methods.
