Apple quietly increases iTunes Match and iCloud Music Library limits above 25,000 tracks

“Apple has increased the 25,000-track limit to iTunes Match and iCloud Music Library,” Kirk McElhearn writes for Kirkville.

“The company has not made any announcements yet, but I have heard from several people who have finally been able to add more than 25,000 tracks to their iTunes Match and iCloud Music Library libraries,” McElhearn writes. “I’ve heard from others, on Twitter and by email, that they, too, have been able to add more than 25,000 tracks.”
