What are the hours and when should I call?

iTunes operates the call center for this 800-676-2775 phone number 24 hours, 7 dayss. The short answer is that you should call on a Friday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 194 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this iTunes phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like iTunes staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call iTunes is Friday. The most busy day to call is Thursday, which averages 167% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 194 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

Calling this iTunes Customer Number

Calling Apple was a fairly easy task, so I would definitely call them again. I had issues with my iTunes synching on my new iPad, but I was able to figure it out with the help of a customer service agent from Apple. It took me about 15 minutes in all to get the task taken care of, and only a few of those minutes were spent talking to the agent or on the directory tree. The other ten were in the queue to talk to someone, but I can understand why. 

This phone line is not a direct line to iTunes support, but instead, a general Apple helpline. There are literally hundreds of reasons why people could be calling Apple. Some people may need technical support with their phones, tablets or laptops, while others may need help with digital products. Apple offers support for Safari, its app store, and dozens of other digital things such as ebooks, music, etc. Therefore, its support services are probably almost always in high demand. With that in mind, 15 minutes isn't too bad for adequate customer support. 

When I first called, an automated voice stated, "Welcome to Apple; calls are recorded." It then went on to say, "I'm an automated system that can handle complete sentences, so tell me how I can help you." I then told it I needed help synching my iTunes account to my new tablet. It told me, "Support for iTunes and digital stores are available online. Please visit getsupport.apple.com. Would you like me to send that link to you?"

I told the automated voice no, and it asked, "How else can I help you?" I then said, "Talk to a customer support agent." It promptly repeated back, "Okay, I'll get you right over to our technical support to help with your iTunes question. Do I have your permission to send a confirmation message to your Apple devices?" 

I said yes, and then it asked what service I was calling about. I told it I needed help with iTunes again, and it said, "Let me get you someone to help you. Please hold for an Apple support advisor." It also offered me my choice of hold music, with choices that included classical, jazz, popular music or silence. 

I chose popular and listened to the theme song from Elemental. A second song started by Justin Beiber I think, and by the end of that one, someone picked up. It wasn't a bad experience at all.

Why Customers Call iTunes

If you have time to do a bit of reading before you call iTunes, we recommend you read over some of our problem-specific articles.

How Do I Deauthorize a Computer in iTunes?

You can authorize up to five computers at a time to play your iTunes purchases. If you want to add a new computer to the list, you will first have to deauthorize one of those already on the list. You can easily do so if you have access to the computer. If you do not have access anymore, you need to deauthorize all of your computers and then reauthorize only the ones you want on the list.

How Do I Deauthorize a Computer on iTunes?

iTunes is a young service of Apple that boasts more than 800 million users since its inception in 2001. It provides music streaming as well as digital purchases for its many users. Unfortunately, iTunes allows for a maximum of five authorized computers; however, these changes are easy to make. Open Apple Music or iTunes and go to your account, then select Authorizations.

More iTunes Customer Service Contacts

There are of course other ways to contact iTunes customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.

iTunes Customer Email Addresses

Corresponding with a customer service department by email may not be your first choice, especially if your issue is urgent or time-sensitive. But email is a nearly ubiquitous form of communication, and iTunes will reply our your email.

iTunes Customer Help Desk / Web Support

Customer service web support
As a last, sometimes only, resort- iTunes customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
