In the last several years, the music consuming trends have shifted from buying to subscribing music. When you buy music, you pay once for the tracks or albums that you like, and you own them forever. On the other hand, subscribing to music requires you to pay the monthly fee, but you have access to all the music that the subscription service providers have in their collection as long as you keep paying the fee.

What is iTunes Match?

But there’s also something else. Apple’s iTunes Match is a music consumption model that sits between owning your music and subscribing to music. By paying a smaller monthly fee than the regular subscription model, you’ll get a service that promises to match all the music in your collection with the ones in Apple’s library and store them in the cloud. Then you’ll be able to access your music from virtually anywhere, and Apple will also bump the quality to the highest bitrate available in their library. The service is perfect for those who are already subscribing to other music services like Spotify and would still like to access their owned music everywhere.

But if you are not using any of those services, Apple Music might be the better choice for you. In addition to access to everything in Apple’s library - which currently the most complete music collection in the world, you will also get iTunes Match with your subscription. For these people, the better scenario is to unsubscribe from iTunes Match and subscribing to Apple Music instead while saving yourself the yearly $25 fee. But how do you unsubscribe from iTunes Match?
