Apple raises iTunes Match/Apple Music upload limits above 25,000 songs [u]Some users are again claiming that Apple has raised the song upload/matching limit for iTunes Match and Apple Music libraries over 25,000, as promised in June by SVP for Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue.

Libraries that were previously held at 25,000 are now having additional songs matched and/or uploaded, according to various accounts recorded by MacRumors and Macworld's Kirk McElhearn.
It's not clear what the new practical limit is, and official iTunes Match documentation still refers to a 25,000-song cap. Apple could conceivably be doing a slow rollout.
In September, though, similar accounts of users topping 25,000 emerged, without the change reaching the general public.
Cue initially stated that Apple was "working to get to 100k for iOS 9," which arrived mid-September. In October, he maintained that Apple was still working on the project, promising the improvement "before the end of the year."
Update: The expansion of services has been confirmed and is rolling out to users now.
