After announcing and delete accounts Match iTunes developers yesterday, Apple has released a new beta of iTunes 10.5.1 to test the new music service $ 24.99 per year.
The third beta of iTunes 10.5.1 is now available for members of the Apple Developer Program, update that includes a number of significant improvements in stability and performance related to Match iTunes. According to the company, all those who are testing the Match iTunes service, which also remain in beta, should upgrade to the latest version of iTunes 10.5.1 to continue using the subscription music service.
Recall that the last beta was released earlier this month, when he joined the Match iTunes to Apple TV. On the other hand, the first beta of iTunes 10.5.1 was delivered to developers in October, shortly after the public release of iTunes 10.5. The original promise was that Apple’s iTunes would be available publicly Match the end of October, but the service can not be accessed by consumers and the company has no comment.
Finally, it is worth clarifying what it is : supporting collections of up to 25 000 songs for $ 24.99 a year, iTunes Match will allow users to scan your music library, including those songs from music CDs or other locations, and associate them with those available in the Apple online store. Then, subscribers can re-download any of their songs to other Apple devices, including iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPhone. These downloads will be 256Kbps AAC files, even if the original files have a lower quality. As I said Dani months ago, it seems that Apple and its iTunes service will achieve Match put a price on piracy.
