Apple bumps Apple Music upload limit to 100,000 tracks

Apple has vastly increased the number of music tracks users can upload through Apple Music and iTunes Match.

For just over four years now Apple has enabled paying customers to upload up to 25,000 digitally stored music tracks to the cloud. That service was initially labeled iTunes Match, but Apple Music subscribers have also been able to make use of such a feature.

Back in June, Apple’s iTunes chief Eddy Cue announced that this track limit would be raised to 100,000 as part of the Apple Music launch. However, September’s launch came and went with no further news on the increase.

Now a number of users have reported that the upload limit has been increased beyond 25,000. What’s more, Eddy Cue has apparently confirmed to MacRumours that Apple has indeed “started rolling out support for 100k libraries.”

Despite this confirmation, Apple has yet to update the Apple Music support page with the new figure.

This means that Apple has gone from offering half the number of music track uploads of the rival Google Play Music service to double. Signing up for Google’s music streaming service also provides you with the ability to upload up to 50,000 music tracks.
