iTunes Match ups track limit to 100,000

When it comes to iTunes Match, the sky is the limit—where “the sky” now equals “100,000 tracks.” Following through on another before-the-end-of-the-year promise, Apple has quietly jacked its cloud-matching service up from its previous 25,000 limit; Apple senior vice president Eddy Cue confirmed the increase to MacRumors.

At $25 a year, iTunes Match is still a pretty darn good deal if you don’t want all the music-streaming features of Apple Music. I’ve been a subscriber since the service was announced, and though I don’t have anywhere near 100,000 songs, it’s reassuring knowing I’m not going to hit the limit anytime soon.
