    Hope I'm posting in the right category.

    I just read the website on Apple Music and understand the music will be stored in iCloud. It will gather all your current music datas in iTunes and combined with whatever new music you intend to download and store it in iCloud. I went thru all the FAQ but never did it state that we must pay for storage. Perhaps Apple has intentionally circumvert this obvious question. Currently my music file amt to 115 GB and counting.

    How much would I have to pay? Storage can't be free right?

    It doesn't use your iCloud storage so you only need to pay the monthly fee once the trial has ended.

    It doesn't use up any of your personal iCloud space.

    It's free because any matched songs are already stored on Apple's servers.

    There is a limit for unmatched songs that iCloud Music Library uploads (currently 25,000; will be upped to 100,000).

    I see. So it means I will certainly save up hard disc space as all the current music stored in iTunes will be transported to iCloud taping on Apple music. Is that correct? And of course there's no free lunch from AM after 3 mths.

    The music currently stored on your hard drive will still be there unless you choose to delete it.
