Apple ups iCloud Music Library limit

Apple ups iCloud Music Library limit

Apple has boosted the storage limit of its iCloud Music Library service, allowing users to stash 100,000 songs on its servers.

Until now, the limit had been set at 25,000, meaning those with 16GB iPhones and large music collections were not able to stream all of their songs.

The change will also be a boon for those with 64GB and 128GB iPhones, by freeing up space on their devices for larger apps and video.

iCloud Music Library scans music collections through iTunes and Apple Music, allowing iPhone users to listen to online and offline tracks as long as they have a Wi–Fi or data connection.

The move comes after Apple’s music chief Eddy Cue promised on Twitter that iCloud Music Library’s limit would be raised by the end of 2015.

The service has had a number of teething troubles, with users complaining about song duplication and album cover errors.

Whether this boost to storage limits will be the catalyst for fixes for these major niggles remains to be seen.
