This is kind of neat.

A number of users have reported that Apple has raised the song upload/matching limit for iTunes Match and Apple Music libraries over 25,000, as promised in June by SVP for Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue.

It’s presently unknown what the new practical limit is, and official iTunes Match documentation still refers to a 25,000-song cap. Apple could conceivably be doing a slow rollout.

In September, though, similar accounts of users topping 25,000 emerged, without the change reaching the general public.

Cue initially stated that Apple was “working to get to 100k for iOS 9,” which arrived mid-September. In October, he maintained that Apple was still working on the project, promising the improvement “before the end of the year.”

If you’ve seen this limit increase on your end, please let us know what you make of it in the comments.
