Music Tracker’s latest iOS update improves large music library scans on older devices

Music Tracker, an app that tracks your music library’s changes, received an update today that will make it process larger music libraries more efficiently. Ben Dodson outlines in his latest blog post that instead of needing to scan through an entire music library, it could handle the library in batches. Music Tracker keeps users aware of when music that had been added to their music library may have been removed by accident or because of music licensing deals expiring.

iTunes Match Subscribers Report Upload Limit Raised Over 25,000 Songs

iTunes Match Thumb

Although Apple’s official iTunes Match page still shows a hard limit of 25,000 song uploads for the music storage service, some users are reporting they are seeing additional songs matched and/or uploaded.

iTunes Match Subscribers Report Upload Limit Raised Over 25,000 Songs

Various account reported by MacRumors and Macworld‘s Kirk McElhearn indicate that users are able to match and upload music libraries greater than the usual 25,000 song hard cap.

There isn’t any firm word on what the new limit is, and as we mentioned before, the official iTunes Match documentation still shows 25,000 as the limit. It should be noted that similar reports began circulating back in September, and the change never became official.

Apple’s Eddy Cue has been quoted as saying Apple was “working to get to 100k for iOS 9,” which didn’t happen at iOS 9’s debut in September. In October, Cue told reporters Apple was still working on the increase, and promised improvement “before the end of the year.”

Apple Raises iTunes Match and Apple Music Library Matching Limits

Over the past couple of days, MacRumors has received several reports from users who have been able to upload music libraries of greater than 25,000 tracks to iTunes Match or Apple Music's similar scan-and-match feature, and Macworld's iTunes expert Kirk McElhearn has also noted a number of reports on his personal blog.

Just ahead of the launch of Apple Music in late June, Eddy Cue revealed on Twitter that Apple was working to raise the matching limit from 25,000 tracks to 100,000 for iOS 9, but the increase did not occur in September when iOS 9 debuted.

MacRumors checked with Cue back in October for an update, and he indicated Apple was "definitely working on it" with the expectation the increase would go live "before the end of the year."

Apple has yet to update its support page on uploading music Apple Music to document the new limit.
