iOS 5 beta 7 ends iTunes Match download !

iTunes Match, Apple’s upcoming new service that takes your iTunes library and mirrors it in Apple’s cloud so it can be streamed has just dropped in Beta form.But after the release of the iTunes Match Beta to developers, there has been a lot of confusion about whether or not the service was “streaming” or not.InsanelyGreatMac made this video which show that iTunes Match was a streaming service for both the Mac and iOS devices.


Now with the just released iOS 5 beta 7 it downloads, plays while downloading, but stays on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch after it has downloaded for repeat local playback.

And yes, that may mean you now have to manually manage storage on your device by deleting older downloads to make room for new ones, then deleting the new ones to make room for re-downloading the old ones again, as you so wish. Just like App Store apps work today.
