Show notes

Since iTunes Match’s Monday debut as part of the iTunes 10.5.1 update, we’ve been all over the new service. Dan Moren has provided a hands-on look at iTunes Match, while Serenity Caldwell fields frequently asked questions about the new service.

You’ll also find a number of iTunes Match tips and how-tos, starting with how to deal with the service’s 25,000-track limit. We also run down how to check the iCloud status of your music, how to upgrade your tracks to higher-quality iTunes Match versions, and what having multiple Apple IDs means for your iTunes Match use. We’ve even got a workaround for toggling between iTunes Match and local syncing.
