    I cannot seem to find the answer to this at Apple.com or through a search here. If anyone knows the answer to this, I'd really appreciate it.

    Let's say you have 100GB of music in your iTunes collection that's eligible to be store in iCloud. If you have the free 5GB storage, and you select to sync music to iCloud, does it just grab the first 5GB you have and then stop or are you permitted to select certain songs, artists or albums or even playlists?

    Thanks!

    It only stores music you've purchased. I doubt anyone has purchased 100 GB of music.

    With iCloud, the music you purchase in iTunes appears automatically on all your devices. You can also download your past iTunes purchases. Where you want, when you want.



    I copy/pasted that from the banner right on Apple's website...

    Exactly. The music you purchase. I have no option for Music in the iCloud section of my Settings.app so I'm not sure.

    I'm assuming your question is referencing iTunes Match, which is what sends your library music to the cloud; Music is NOT counted towards your space allotment - PERIOD, whether it's matched or not.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking.

    It was just an example.

    Using it now and that's how it works. It's completely separate from iCloud.

    Your music is not backed up in the cloud unless purchased from apple.

    You're right. But with iTunes Match, you always have access to it and it's not taking up your allotted cloud space.

    edit: wait, no, you're just wrong.
