    As the thread title says previous music purchases can be downloaded in the UK.

    Well done Apple.

    ----------

    Don't worry it just came up in iTunes! It wasn't there last night after I did the update?

    Nice, however some songs say currently currently unavailable if you try to download them.

    Got 133 songs available to download as iTunes decided a few months ago to delete them from my library!

    I can't see it in the iOS app, can you point me in the right direction please?

    Lets hope that iTunes match for the UK isn't too far behind.

    I'm still on iOS4 on an iPhone 4 (though will be upgrading to iOS 5 today I hope).
    In the iTunes app there's a "Purchased" icon at the bottom, which brings up all your previous iTunes purchases (you can view All or just those "Not on This iPhone")

    Choosing an artist lets you download songs by tapping the cloud icon.

    Wasn't earlier, recently came online in iTunes app.

    Right got it down to one that is temporarily unavailable - however it says 6 songs available under All Songs, click it - it shows 4! Two songs aren't showing!! I'll check that later to see if it comes available or via iPhone.
    Edit: iPhone also shows (1) for Kanye West going into it it says All Songs (0) grr.

    Thank you, wasn't there earlier for me. To get it to work I had to force quit the iTunes app then reopened was there.

    Thanks for your help :) time to do some downloading!

    Helps if you sign out of the store and then sign in again.

    I wonder, is "purchased" content going to show up in the iPod app so you can download it directly, rather than having to go into the iTunes app to download it?

    Yes it's in the iTunes app. It should appear as an option at the bottom of the screen.

    Try signing out of the store and then back in again.

    I know it's in the iTunes app. My point is, it's an extra process you have to go through to get there. It'd make more sense for the artist/album to be displayed in your iPod app, but when you click on it, it prompts you to download it from iCloud. Rather than having to go into iTunes, then have to go back to the iPod app to listen.

    Right gotcha.

    It's all handled through the iTunes app. To be fair it only takes a few seconds to switch between the two apps.

    You can also set an iOS device to automatically download new purchases made on all devices under Settings, Store.
