Apple Music is not the same as iTunes. If you have an Apple Music subscription, you can use the Apple Music App to listen to your purchased iTunes music.
However, you don't need the Apple Music App to listen to iTunes music on your Delphin. To download your iTunes songs, you can plug your Delphin into a computer and Drag and Drop files into the Music folder on the Delphin. You can then use one of these MP3 Apps (Pi, BlackPlayer, VLC) to listen to your AAC files from iTunes. Files purchased before 2009 will be protected and therefore not usable on the Delphin.
There is a workaround for older files, however, it requires you to delete your purchased files and then redownload them from Apple. This process can be tricky. Feel free to contact Apple for more information for how to do this properly.
This guide is for Delphin users.
Things you will need to follow this guide:
- A strong WiFi connection
- A Delphin Micro Tablet
- A paid subscription to an Apple Music account that allows offline listening: Either the $9.99/mo Individual, or one of the Family or Student accounts will work. A free membership will not be able to play offline while swimming. This link will take you to Apple Music’s website for learning more about the different subscription tiers.
Big hint! If you are already past the initial Delphin set-up process: To make setting up and installing anything on your Delphin easier, from the front screen, swipe up for more options. Go to Settings > Display > Sleep and choose a longer time, like 10 minutes, to keep the screen from going dark too quickly. Just remember after you have finished setting up to go back and turn the screen down to a lower time. The two fastest ways to drain the battery on your Delphin are keeping the display screen on and being connected to WiFi. Keep the screen off whenever it is not in use and turn off the WiFi any time you are not actively using it to keep your battery running for the longest time.
