How To Use iTunes Radio On Your iPhone - iOS Tip

iTunes Radio is Apple's free music streaming service. iTunes Radio is currently available only in select countries at the moment. If you're in one of the lucky countries, here's how the service works:

How To Use iTunes Radio On iPhone

iTunes Radio is located in the iOS Music App.  So the first thing you'll want to do is, launch the Music App.

Then tap the Radio tab. If you've never used the service before, you'll see a Welcome screen. Press Start Listening to begin.

You be shown Featured Stations, and can set up your own Stations. Stations are the channels of music, of either a Band or Genre you like to listen too.

To add a new station press the "+" button. Then you can either search for particular band or choose a genre.

Once a song starts playing you can "Star" the song, saying you like it, or you can skip to the next song. If you really like a song, you can also buy it, buy pressing the dollar amount on the top of the screen.

If you pick a Band station, you will not only get songs from that band. iTunes will also play other songs that is similar and thinks you'll like.

Buy pressing the "i" button on top, you can access settings. From here you can "tune" the current station to either "Hits", "Variety", or "Discover".

Also you are limited to the amount of songs you can 'skip', for a time period, per station.

Also note that iTunes Radio is ad-supported, unless you have a current iTunes Match subscription.
