How to Use iTunes Match

Last year, Apple announced iCloud for storing all your iTunes music purchases “in the cloud,” making them available to all your devices wherever you have an Internet connection. Now Apple has taken this concept one step further with iTunes Match. iTunes Match is a paid service ($24.99 per year) that will store your entire music collection in iCloud. The neat trick is that for music you already own that matches a track that iTunes sells, you do not need to upload it. iTunes Match will simply see that your track matches one that they sell, and make it available to you on any cloud-ready device you use, such as your iPhone, iTouch, iPad, Macbook, etc. The benefit here is the time-savings from not having to upload gigabytes upon gigabytes of music.
