iTunes Match iCloud Music Library limit raised from 25,000 to 100,000 songs

Apple has raised the limit on iTunes Match songs in the iCloud Music Library from 25,000 to 100,000 tracks, reflecting an increase promised by Eddy Cue back in October.

It means that users with a large local music library will now be able to listen to them on all their devices via iCloud.

iTunes Match is a service that allows users with local music files that weren’t purchased through iTunes to access them via their devices by uploading and matching them on iCloud. It means users don’t have to use up precious device storage by storing their files in the Cloud and streaming them over Wi-Fi or cellular data.

The iTunes Match service costs $24.99 (£21.99) per year. However, the recently launched Apple Music also provides the same Match service. It costs $9.99 (£9.99) per month, but also gives users access to its full music library of over 35 million tracks.
