iTunes is a computer-based “jukebox” that enables you to do several things:

  • Play MP3 and AAC format audio files.

  • Record music from audio CDs on your Macintosh as AAC and MP3 files.

  • Buy music from the iTunes Music Store.

  • Create custom CDs of your favorite music.

  • Save AAC and MP3 files to an iPod and save MP3 files to other MP3 players.

  • Listen to Internet-based radio stations.

The next few pages explain how you can use iTunes to record and play MP3 music, copy MP3 files to an iPod, and burn audio CDs.
