If you can’t play music on your iOS device, you need to authorize your device. If you purchased several items from the Apple App Store but it seems you cannot use them afterwards, you need to check your computer and verify that your machine is authorized to perform purchases with iTunes.

When you authorize your computer, you allow it to have permission to access your music, movies, and other content. You are allowed to authorize up to five (5) computers which means you can play your content on five different machines or devices. Though you are allowed to authorize up to five machines, you cannot authorize a computer from another computer or from a portable device like iPhone, iPad, and or iPod touch.

Before you authorize a computer, make sure to update it to the latest OS X or macOS and iTunes to the latest version. Download the latest iTunes for your platform and install to update. For Windows users, start iTunes then log in with your Apple ID. Next, go to “Account,” “Authorizations” then select “Authorize This Computer.”

If you run out of authorizations, you can deauthorize a computer that you are no longer using. To deauthorize, repeat the same steps then select “Deauthorize This Computer” in the last step. If you sold or gave away your computer, you need to deauthorize that computer.
