How to Install iTunes on Chromebook
Do you have a Chromebook and was wondering if you can install iTunes on it? Here we are going to tell you how to install iTunes on your Chromebook.

Chromebooks are becoming very popular especially owing to the Covid-19 outbreak where students are more into distant or online learning. And for those who have an iPhone, they might want to connect it to their Chromebook.

As to whether you can use your iPhone with your Chromebook for file sharing, for example, it is very possible but you will need to have iTunes installed. Here, we have described in details how to install iTunes on your Chromebook and use it with your iDevice.

Install iTunes on a Chromebook - Steps to follow

Now that you are eager to know how you can install iTunes on a Chromebook, we won't waste your time telling stories but dive directly into the process.

In order to install iTunes on a Chromebook, we will have to install a Linux container to install the Windows version of iTunes. For this purpose, we’ll use the Wine app to get the iTunes app running. In the end, we’ll also guide you with the process of creating a shortcut on your home screen.

  • First things first, you will need to enable Linux on your Chromebook. To do this, head to Settings > Linux(beta) on your Chromebook and turn it on.

  • After turning on Linux on your Chromebook, it will install all the necessary files and a Terminal window will pop open.

  • From the Terminal window, use the code below to update the packages.
sudo apt-get update
  • Once all the updates are completed, install Wine using the command below.
sudo apt-get install Wine
install wine on Chromebook
  • Once you've suceeded in installing wine on your Chromebook, the next thing to do will be to enable support for 32bit applications. To do this, execute the following command in the Terminal;

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

sudo apt update

sudo apt-get install wine32

enable 32bit app support chromebook
  • Now Wine will be installed on your Chromebook and with support for 32 bit application. And since Wine is a Linux emulator that allows you run Windows applications, we will now download the 32bit version of iTunes for Windows.
  • After downloading the iTunes for Windows, move it to the Linux files directory. Rename it to  'iTunesSetup.exe.'

  • Now, the main objective is installing iTunes. From the Terminal, execute the command below replacing 'your-user-name' with the actual username of your Chromebook. Here, we are referring to the username that you entered while enabling the Linux (beta) feature on Chromebook.

sudo apt update

Then this
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/home/your-user-name/.wine32/ wine iTunesSetup.exe
  • The iTunes setup window will now open. All you have to do is follow the installation guide.

  • Once the iTunes is installed, you will be able to access it from the Linux application menu.

The last thing you may want to do is create a shortcut for the iTunes you just installed. To do this, proceed thus;
  • Open the file manager and navigate to the Linux directory. 
  • Next, click on the "Three dots" at the top-right corner and check the option to show hidden files.

  • From the Linux files directory, navigate to the following path: .local -> share -> applications -> wine -> Program Files ->iTunes.  

  • You will see the "iTunes.desktop" file. Right-click on it and open with a text editor. Add the following statement after the "Exec" line. Remember to replace ‘your-user-name’ with your actual username, as described above.
env WINEPREFIX="/home/your-user-name/.wine32" wine "/home/your-user-name/.wine32/drive_c/Program Files/iTunes/iTunes.exe"
  • Finally, use  Ctrl + S to save the file and close it. Now go back to your Linux apps and launch iTunes. It should start correctly.
