iTunes Match is live in the US

Apple’s cloud storage-based music solution gets the green light across the pond. But what about us Brits?

Apple’s iTunes Match service is officially live in the US – but those of us in the UK are still left in the dark as to when the cloud-streaming service will arrive on this side of the pond.

For the sum of US$25 a year, iTunes Match subscribers can store their music in the cloud, enabling them to listen to their tunes on any iOS device or computer in the world.

The service was originally scheduled to be released in the US by the end of October, hinting that our 2011 release date will get pushed back to 2012 – we’ll bring you more information as and when we get it.
