Apple’s latest addition to its iCloud/iTunes ecosystem iTunes Match now looks to be alive and kicking. After the US market received iTunes Match in November expectations of a 2011 Australian launch seemed unlikely. But here we are and at $34.99 a year you can become one of the first to test the new Apple service.
iTunes Match stores your entire music library in iCloud, including music from CDs, and lets you enjoy it anywhere, anytime, on your iOS devices, computers or Apple TV. That’s in addition to the free features you already get with iTunes in the Cloud.
Millions of Songs to Match
Any of your songs already in the iTunes Store are automatically available in iCloud. iTunes only uploads songs without a match.
Listen at 356 Kbps DRM-Free
Play matched songs in iTunes Store quality. Even if your original was of lower quality.
You library information and unmatched songs will be uploaded to Apple and associated with your Apple ID. iTunes Match requires iOS 5 and Internet access on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. 10 device limit. 25,000 song limit; your iTunes purchases are unlimited if available in the iTunes Store. Match, upload times and eligibility will vary.
