Apple Has Reopened iTunes Match Beta For US Developers


Apple sent out a notification email to developers this afternoon to let them know that the iTunes Match beta is up and running again:

iTunes Match beta testing has now been expanded to additional developers in the United States.
iTunes Match stores your music library in iCloud and allows you to enjoy your collection from anywhere, any time, on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or computer. Any of your songs, including music you’ve imported from CDs, that matches with the 18 million songs in the iTunes Store will become available in iCloud and will play back at iTunes Plus quality (256 Kbps DRM-free AAC) — even if your original was of a lower quality.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with iTunes Match, it’s one of Apple’s new services that allows users to store their music in iCloud so that they can access it “from anywhere, any time, on either an iPhone, an iPad, an iPod touch, or a computer”. Currently the services is restricted to Apple developers however, when it launches this Fall with iOS 5, users will be able to purchase a yearly subscription for the new service at the low rate of $24.99.

Here’s the email that Apple sent out to developers earlier this afternoon:

    What does that do?

      It makes it so you don’t have to download all of your songs on all of your devices to save on space and it automatically scales it up songs to high quality 256 Kbps!

        That way, do you need Internet to listen at your songs?

        • http://www.besttechinfo.com Tanner Marsh

          Yes, you would.

        • http://besttechinfo.com Tanner Marsh

          Yes, you will need to be connected to the internet.
