Apple Ends iTunes Match, iCloud Music 25,000 Track Limit

| News

There wasn't any fanfare over the weekend when Apple quietly increased the online storage limit for iTunes Match and iCloud Music Library above 25,000 tracks, but big music library users noticed. There isn't any official word on how many songs you can add to Apple's online music storage services, but earlier this year Apple senior vice president of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue said the company was planning on raising the limit to 100,000 songs.

The Mac Observer's tests show you can, in fact, upload more than 25,000 tracks to iTunes Match now.

The 25,000 track cap was an annoyance for iTunes users trying to store large libraries online. Instead of having access to their entire music collection from any device, they were forced to upload a subset of their songs.

With that cap out of the way, iTunes Match and iCloud Musc Library users can upload more than 25,000 songs—presumably up to 100,000. How many tracks have you been able to upload? We'd love to know if anyone has been able to hit the 100,000 mark.
