    Latest Tech News - Apple gives devs early access to iTunes Match

    Ahead of releasing its upcoming iTunes Match service to consumers, Apple is offering it up to developers to kick the tires on.

    As noted by 9to5mac this afternoon, Apple is giving developers a chance to try out iTunes Match on their own music libraries ahead of the release this fall.

    iTunes Match is the service that scans a user's library to find music that they may have ripped from a CD, but did not purchase from Apple, and cross references it with Apple's own library. If it finds a match, it provides a user with a license of the full-quality track, as long as they're a paid subscriber.

    As part of the test plan, Apple's giving developers access to the iTunes Match service free of charge ahead of the release, along with three months free. The plan itself runs 12 months, costs $24.99 a year, and covers 25,000 songs in a user's library.

    In order to use the service, Apple notes developers need to be running the latest beta of iOS 5, and a new beta version of iTunes 10.5.

    As with previous software-driven initiatives, Apple has given developers early access to iCloud features ahead of its launch this fall. Developers have already gotten access to iCloud iOS device backup through the iOS 5 beta program, as well as early versions of its iWork apps, and the iCloud.com Web site.
