How to Pause an iTunes Music Download


After purchasing a song, movie, TV show or music video from the iTunes Store, you can pause the download. This iTunes feature is helpful if your Internet connection is running slow due to the download and you need to momentarily free up bandwidth. Downloads can be resumed after you pause them.

  • Open the iTunes software on your computer.

  • Purchase a song from the iTunes Store. Otherwise, if you already purchased music and it didn't finish downloading, it will automatically resume when you open iTunes.

  • Select "Downloads" from the left sidebar.

  • Find the song you want to pause and click the small "Pause" icon next to the item. To resume a download, click the "Resume" icon.
