Apple wants you to store more music.

Apple has raised the limit on its iTunes Match and Apple Music libraries, from 25,000 songs to a whopping 100,000 songs, fulfilling a promise made by Eddy Cue, the company's senior vice president of Internet software and Services. Earlier this year, Cue said that Apple will soon allow users to have bigger libraries of music.

In a statement to MacRumors, Cue confirmed that Apple is “beginning to roll out support for 100k libraries.” There are several reports of users who were able to upload more than 25,000 tracks, igniting speculations that Apple is raising the limit on its Apple Music and iTunes Match libraries.

Apple Music, which launched this year, is the iPhone maker's own music streaming service. iTunes Match, however, has been around for a long time. The latter allows subscribers to store songs--even those imported from CDs and DVDs--to iCloud. The service “matches” these songs, making them playable across Apple devices.

By increasing the limit to 100,000 songs, Apple is undercutting its rivals. Google Play Music, for instance, allows 50,000 tracks, although Google doesn't charge a dime. iTunes Match costs $29.99 a year, while Apple Music starts at $9.99 a month. Nevertheless, Apple fans are happy to store more music into their libraries.
