Apple Quadruples iTunes Match Cloud Space to 100,000 Songs

Apple has confirmed it is rolling out previously teased plans to increase the amount of cloud music storage it offers on iTunes Match and Apple Music.

Apple has confirmed it is rolling out previously teased plans to quadruple the amount of cloud music storage it offers on iTunes Match and Apple Music. In late June, Apple svp Eddy Cue revealed on Twitter that users of the storage service would see the cap bumped from 25,000 to 100,000 tracks. 

Though the increase did not materialize as expected when iOS 9 was released in September, Cue has now told MacRumors that the company has “started rolling out support” for the expanded libraries.

Match works by scanning a user’s local music library and making the tracks available across all devices, for $24.99/year. Subscribers of Apple Music ($9.99/month) get access as well.

The move doubles the amount of cloud storage that Google Play Music offers — though that service is free of charge.
