Hello. I am curious on why gifting a song requires an iTunes update. I sent my mother a gifted song by The Beach Boys called "That's Why God Made The Radio" and my mother said that she put the code into her iTunes, and that it then told her that she needed to update iTunes and that she could not download the song until it was updated. So in the end she said that she was going to update iTunes at a later date and she figures that she is going to get the song then.


I however am concearened that she may not get the song once she updates her iTunes, and that the code may not work for her now that she enetered it once too. Am I wrong though and that since she has the code and was gifted the song, is it going to be availiable in her purchase cloud? Also, I am conceared that she made an error, because it seems odd that a specific version of iTunes is required. I am not actually able to see my mom at this time, so I don't know if she did anything else wrong.


Basically I am trying to find out wether or not gifting music requires that the version of iTunes be the most current? Thanks for any answers!
