Apple has just rolled out iTunes 10.5.1 Beta 3 to developers, where this particular update is said to deliver a bunch of improvements (as with any other self-respecting update would, I presume), especially to Apple’s soon-to-happen iCloud-based subscription service known as iTunes Match. Bear in mind that this will be a required update for all subscribers to iTunes Match beta. Apple advises users to perform regular backups, in addition to not deleting any music that is added to iCloud from your computer. Apple might from time to time, delete entire iCloud libraries during the beta period – hence the ‘warning’ to make backups.
iTunes Match was meant to be released last month, but as with many new projects, it did run into a bunch of teething issues which have resulted in a delay. Considering how fast and furious the more recent beta releases happen, we can more or less expect to see iTunes Match being made available to customers in a matter of weeks. Would you be willing to fork out $24.99 each year for iTunes Match so that you can have the convenience of accessing your music from all iOS-powered devices?
