At the end of October Apple sent out a notice to developers about resetting iTunes Match beta developer accounts as we all expected the service to launch, as teased, by November. After being delayed for unknown reasons, the offering should launch any time now.
In a recent note to developers Cupertino warned about deleting “all current iCloud libraries on Saturday, November 12th at 10 AM PST”, in preparation for the launch of iTunes Match. With iTunes Match, Apple will enable users to replace low quality music files with iTunes copies of better quality for $25 per year. iTunes will scan your non iTunes music library and swap all these files for you.
