Therefore, you should follow this guide if you want to install iTunes on your computer in the only right, safe and fast way available on the web.
Don’t download iTunes from untrusted websites.
As we covered in our introduction it is evident that you shouldn’t just start searching for the first website that pops up to download iTunes. There are a lot of websites around on the web that offer a lot of different type of downloads. Think about, regular computer software, tools, games and many more. Even though the downloads offered on these “Download hubs” as we call them, are usually functioning well. You should check the files before you actually install them to your hard drive. Since many people don’t know how to check the files and the people who have bad intentions get smarter day by day. We provide the following rules of thumb: “Don’t download from any regular website, unless you have advanced knowledge check the inside files.”
Download from the official Apple website!
Now that you know the sources you shouldn’t download your iTunes software from. You might be wondering where you can download the right software installation package. There is only one trusted source and this is the Official Apple website. Since Apple is the developer of the iTunes platform it is evident that they are the only trusted source for the download. And remember this lesson for in the future. If you are looking to download a specific software program. Find out the name of developers and search for the official website of the developers.
Should I consider my Windows version?
The simple answer is, no! You don’t have to consider your windows version because Apple has been so friendly to do this for you. Once you enter download page on the official Apple website, it tracks the version of windows you are using. This way it will always serve you the correct files. You can check it though. For example, when you work with the 64 bits version, you download will be named iTunes64Setup.exe. The 32 bits version is named iTunes32Setup.exe. If your download matches the name. You are certain that you acquired the right file.
