Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores

If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.

Send Article to a Friend

Two quick ExtraBITS for you this week — Jeff Carlson is giving a live online presentation about his “The iPad for Photographers” book and Glenn Fleishman explains LTE over at the TechHive site.

Join Jeff Carlson for a Peachpit Photo Club Presentation on 18 September 2012 -- On 18 September 2012, Jeff Carlson is giving a free online presentation about the concepts and techniques in his book “The iPad for Photographers” at 5:00 PM Pacific (8:00 PM Eastern). Over the course of the hour, he’ll demonstrate how to import photos wirelessly from a camera to the iPad, rate and tag images while still on location, edit the photos directly on the iPad, and more. This will be a live demonstration (not just a set of Keynote slides), and there will be plenty of time for questions. Register at Peachpit’s site and tune in Tuesday!
