Apple appears to have increased the 25,000-track limit of iTunes Match and iCloud Music Library online services. While the company hasn't made any announcement, multiple reports claim that a user can now scan, match, and add a maximum of 100,000 songs to their iTunes Match and iCloud Music Library libraries.
The apparent rollout comes months after Eddy Cue, Apple's Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services, said that the company was "definitely working on" increasing the limit. At the time, he had noted that Apple would increase the limit to 100,000 tracks.
The change isn't reflecting for all users just yet, and it is also not clear exactly how many tracks can now be added to the aforementioned libraries. Considering the executive's comment, we expect the change to be live for all users by the end of 2015.
This is a welcome move from the company, as many users have in the past requested Apple to increase the limit. Tracks ripped from CDs, or downloaded from the Web are counted against the limit on iTunes Match and iCloud Music Library.
Users with a 16GB variant iPhone or iPad will also appreciate the increase, as they can now upload more of their tracks to the cloud. For a refresh, iCloud Music Library is available for access through iTunes Match and Apple Music.
The company's decision to extend the tracks limit also makes Apple Music enticing for many. Apple has been aggressively improving and expanding its newly launched music streaming service. The company recently released Apple Music for Android.
