iTunes 10.5 Beta 6.1 is available to download For Windows, Mac With iTunes Match
Apple has just released a new iTunes 10.5 Beta 6.1 to its developers in the United States. The main feature for this update is the implementation of iTunes Match that allows users to upload tracks to Apple’s still-in-beta iCloud service.The useful service, which assures to boost the way you gather and listen to music, will ultimately allow you to store your whole music collection in iCloud for a just $25 a year, which sounds quite excellent. In addition, it will upload music from your collection which is not already contained in iCloud – saving much time and bandwidth. For example, if you have the Beatles discography, iCloud can match almost of it on Apple’s very own servers, if not every one of that collection, and will later allow you to access a 256kbps AAC version from within iCloud rather than uploading it.
It seems me as there is rather a potential for exploitation. One can download music, drag it into iTunes, and have Apple afterward store a reasonably high quality version ready and waiting for at any time.
There are only some bugs with this first beta of iTunes Match; you cannot include music to iCloud from more than one computer at an occasion, and there are playback snags with iOS as well. Apple has recommended that devs backup iTunes libraries before installing, like any iCloud uploads at this beta stage could be subject to deletion.
To get your hands hold on iTunes 10.5 beta 6.1, you need to register as an Apple developer, which will costs $99 per annum. if you have a real interest in the development of iTunes or iOS, purchase the subscription and download it legally. As we have stressed before, it is better to be safe than sorry.
