I don't think it does. Download is to load something and install is to actually apply it. *downloading is just putting something on your computer while installing it means to have the program actually work and be set up to your liking*

How do you change your iPhone app store address?

First of all, you have to realize that your iPhone app store password is the same as your iTunes store password. In order to change your app store password, you have to log into iTunes, and an effective way I've found is to activate your account by actually downloading something. The easist thing is for you to do this in iTunes on your computer while the iPhone is hooked up to your computer. Good luck. Hope this makes sense.

How do you fix iPhone error 1611?

1- Change the USB port the phone is plugged in to. Do not plug the phone back in yet. 2- Reboot the computer then plug the phone in and immediately restart the phone in DFU WHILE CONNECTED to the computer. Open up iTunes. 3- Hit restore DFU can be set on mac by pressing and holding both the home button (Square button) and the Sleep/wake button for 10 sec. Then release ONLY thee sleep/wake button. Keep holding it until iTunes notifies you that you are in restoration mode What will happen, is that your phone will be updated and iTunes will download the next update. Your screen should be black, meaning that it is in DFU mode. After the update finishes the downloading, it will start to extract the software. The downloading time takes a while, since it needs to verify restoration, etc. etc. The apple logo should be visible with a progress bar when downloading. It will take a long time. When it is done, iTunes may ask you if you want to download your backup back into the phone or just use it as a "new" phone. It is advised to press on the "backup", since you get all your contacts, mail, messages, etc. back.

When your finished buying songs on i tunes what do you do next?

Go back to your itunes library. It may take a while for the song to download, but it will eventually come up in your itunes library. To check if it is done downloading, go to the downloads page on the left side of your screen on your library. Hope this helped! Happy listening!
