Apple Music Fixed, Now More Accurate

Apple Music has proved to be more of a success than many people thought it could be. Now that people are actually using it, they are starting to realize that all of the features aren't that great. Some users complained that when Apple Music suggested music to them, it wasn't necessarily things that they would like. That, along with the sound quality, will all change soon.

In the past, if you were to delete an album or a track accidentally, you could find solace in the fact that it was still on your iCloud. However, the track is then copyright protected. Now, you will get more respect for the personal library rights of the tracks.

The matching technology itself has been improved as well. One of the best features about Apple Music is that it allowed you to stream your music from your own library as well as music that is part of the subscription. However, it hasn't always been great at matching the personal tracks to the right song.

This improvement comes because before, Apple was using metadata which could lead to incorrect matches, according to TechCrunch.

But all along, Apple has had a better technology that they haven't publicized as much, which is its iTunes Match service. This service is available as a $25 per year alternative allows you to rip your entire music library, including songs from CDs, and put them on the cloud. They then use audio fingerprinting to match it up, making it far more accurate.

They look at the song and try to find it in their collection. If they can't find the exact match, they upload it directly to the cloud.

Apple Music subscribers are getting access to this technology slowly but surely.
