You can redownload your purchased songs, albums, movies, TV shows, apps, books, or audiobooks.

1. Open iTunes and go to the “iTunes Store” section.
2. Click on the “Purchased” link in the store’s sidebar.

How to sync your music
iTunes can be used to sync music to your iPhone, iPod, or iPad. You can also use it to transfer music from your iOS device back to your Mac. If you want to download purchased music from iTunes on Mac, follow the steps below.
Before we get started, make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes on your Mac. You can update it by opening the App Store and clicking on the Updates tab. Once iTunes is up-to-date, launch the app and connect your iOS device to your Mac using a Lightning cable.
Click on the device icon in the upper-left corner of iTunes and select Music from the left sidebar. Make sure that the Sync Music option is enabled and then click on the Sync button. This will sync all of the music from your iTunes library to your iOS device. If you only want to sync specific songs or playlists, you can do so by selecting them from the list and clicking on the Sync button.
Once the sync is complete, you should see all of your purchased music in the Music app on your iOS device. To download purchased music from iTunes on Mac, open the Music app and find the song or album that you want to download. Tap on the More options button (three dots) and select Download from the drop-down menu.
How to manage your music
iTunes is a powerful media manager but it has a few organisation features hidden away. Here’s how to use them
When you first open iTunes, you’re asked whether you want to use it as a music library, as a means of syncing with an iOS device, or both. You can change this behaviour in iTunes’ preferences, but most of us probably stuck with the default. That’s fine if you’re just listening to your music on your computer or iPhone, but if you also have an iPad, it quickly gets confusing which devices have which tracks.
If you have purchased music from iTunes and would like to share it with others, you can do so easily on your Mac. Here’s how:
Open iTunes and go to the Songs section.
Click on the song or album that you want to share.
Click the Share button at the top of the window.
Select how you want to share your music. You can choose to share via AirDrop, Mail, Messages, or Notes.
If you choose AirDrop, select the person you want to share your music with from the list of available devices.
If you choose Mail or Messages, enter the recipient’s email address or phone number.
If you choose Notes, type a message to accompany your music.
Click Share when finished.
How to troubleshoot your music
If you’re having trouble downloading purchased music from iTunes on your Mac, there are a few steps you can take to solve the problem.
First, make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes installed. To do this, open the App Store on your Mac, click “Updates” in the left sidebar, and then install any available updates for iTunes.
If you’re still having trouble, try restarting your computer and then opening iTunes. If that doesn’t work, try signing out of your account and then signing back in.
Still no luck? There could be an issue with the payment method associated with your Apple ID. To check this, open iTunes on your Mac, click “Account” in the menu bar at the top of the screen, and then click “View My Account.” From here, scroll down to the “Payment Method” section and make sure that everything is up to date.
