Hey iOS devs, you can now test out iTunes Match Beta. iTunes Match is a $24.99 per year service, integrated with iCloud, that stores your entire music library in iCloud, allowing you to access that content from an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or computer. It plays the tracks at 256 Kbps (iTunes Plus quality,) even if the original version is of lower quality. One big advantage that iTunes and Apple have here over services like Google Music is that you don't need to upload your entire library. Any songs that Apple has available in iTunes are automatically added to your iCloud account without the need for uploading. iTunes Match should be available publicly this fall.
Apple has been busy updating their Dev Center with another iOS 5 beta update, and today developers can go and grab iOS 5 beta 6. If you are already running beta 5, then you can perform an over-the-air (OTA) update directly from your device, with no need to use iTunes. You can now grab iOS 5 beta 6 for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Apple TV, alongside iTunes 10.5 beta 6 and Xcode 4.2 Developer Preview 6 for both Snow Leopard (4C5163c) and Lion (4D163b.)
