Apple acknowledges Apple Music now includes 'all the benefits of iTunes Match'

Interesting. I haven’t heard from anybody specifically on this, but I’ll ask around among our team as I think some of us weren’t iTunes Match subscribers to begin with.
Technically, uploading was always supported in Apple Music, but of course if your songs are being improperly matched, the originals won’t get uploaded as iTunes thinks it’s already dealt with them by matching them.
The suggestions in that Apple Discussions thread should work to force a rescan of your library. I wouldn’t worry too much about the Android side of things — that’s not relevant in this case as everything should be done from iTunes.
One thing you could try as a diagnostic would be to remove a few tracks that you know for certain have been improperly matched from your iTunes library entirely; when deleting a track, iTunes will offer to remove it only from the library database without erasing the underlying file (and that’s only if it’s in your “iTunes Media” folder — if the track was imported from somewhere else, iTunes won’t touch the underlying file at all under any circumstances).
After you’ve removed those tracks, they should also be removed from your iCloud Music Library, although I’d give it a few minutes to make sure everything has synced up. After that, try reimporting them, which should cause iTunes to reprocess them as if they were brand new tracks and take them through the standard matching-then-uploading algorithms so you can see what happens.

Apple acknowledges Apple Music now includes 'all the benefits of iTunes Match'

Do you know if people that are Apple Music subscribers but not Match users have seen this conversion from Apple Music to Uploaded or Matched? I heard they’d be through everyone by the end of August, but I’m still sitting on the incorrect Apple Music status for 50GB+ of live recordings that are incorrectly matched to the studio versions of these songs. There’s no way to execute a ‘rescan’ of the library for Apple to see that there are improperly matched songs. Here’s a discussion on my saga… https://discussions.apple.com/...

Apple makes its picks for best iPhone, iPad and Apple TV apps of 2016

I like Twitter and it’s kinda fun on Apple TV, but my choice would be Channels, the app that lets you watch live local OTA broadcast TV (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, PBS, etc)...negating one of the chief arguments of local cable providers against the likes of Apple TV.

Rumor: 2017 iPhones won't include glass chassis or wireless charging; will add red color

Sounds like that “supply source” might be named Samsung.

Apple acknowledges Apple Music now includes 'all the benefits of iTunes Match'

Of course, those covered by the last part about iTunes Match can still decide whether having full DRM-free, 256K quality copies of their songs, a unified library, cloud backup, streaming playback to mobile devices, plus the option of purchasing 6 new songs per month (@ $1.29 ea) for the same monthly price is the better deal.
I liked Apple Music, but the above probably takes care of 95% of my limited music needs. “New” music is less a desire than the constant access to my music no matter where I am.

Apple acknowledges Apple Music now includes 'all the benefits of iTunes Match'

The only thing I can say right now is that you should have access, but clearly Apple hasn’t updated all of its support documents yet — they’ve only changed the main Apple Music FAQ. However, uploaded have been part of Apple Music’s iCloud Music Library since the beginning, as per the original linked above:

In addition, iTunes will upload to your iCloud Music Library those songs that we can’t find in our catalog, to make them available to you on all of your other devices.

Also a bit confused - I have several live concerts in my library that didn’t match & had to be uploaded when I signed up for iTunes Match, is Apple keeping them so if I drop Match but sign up for Apple Music I would still have access to them?

Apple acknowledges Apple Music now includes 'all the benefits of iTunes Match'

While I haven’t been able to test it yet (my iTunes Match subscription expires on Dec 15th), that’s what all indications point to. The ability to download DRM-free versions of “matched” tracks was the key differentiator between Apple Music and iTunes Match, and our July report that indicated Apple was beginning to roll it out indicated that it was a key part of the plan:

...the upgrade to iTunes Match audio fingerprinting will also bring other iTunes Match features, including the ability to download all matched songs as DRM-free versions from the iTunes Store.

Sorry, a bit confused, does this mean that Apple Music subscribers (who do not have Apple Match) can now download DRM-free 256kbps AAC versions of any tracks matched from their own library and keep them after their Apple Music plan has ended?

Apple offering battery replacements for iPhone 6s models with 'unexpected shutdown issues' (Updated)

I have had this happen multiple times to my 6s plus, which I got at the beginning of November 2015. Only the 6s is included in the replacement program. Has anyone else with a 6s plus had this issue?.

Apple ends development of wireless routers

Hopefully third-party router support for Time Machine will come in some fashion or another — it’s possible Apple may partner with specific manufacturers to add support.
Of course, Time Machine backups to directly connected hard drives will continue to work, so Apple isn’t necessarily abandoning Time Machine itself as a backup system, and macOS Server still has a Time Machine server component as well, so that’s an option for anybody setting up a home network.

Apple ends development of wireless routers

So what happens with the Apple backup system, Time Machine if Time Capsules are no longer made? Will Apple let third party routers support Time Machine? Airplay was very cool it took no skills to use.

Apple ends development of wireless routers

Yup, I’ll definitely give you that one — as routers the Airport lineup was falling FAR behind, and really wasn’t up to par even when it came to things like QoS for properly handling/prioritizing VoIP/Wi-Fi Calling features. It was basically time for Apple to fish or cut bait on these things.
On the other hand, AirPlay capabilities in the Extreme line will be missed, and while I’ve been hoping Apple will release an inexpensive client-only AirPlay device — especially after the demise of the third-generation Apple TV — I’ve been getting the feeling that AirPlay as an audio solution is on the decline, and possibly something Apple isn’t all that interested in any more.
Third-party AirPlay speakers were always on the expensive side, and most had serious performance issues in the first couple of generations of products. For most users who only need to stream to a single speaker, Bluetooth has filled that requirement much more effectively, and I suspect Apple is willing to simply cede the market to Sonos for “whole home” audio, especially now that Apple Music is integrated. Sonos is much pricier, but there’s no doubt that Sonos has figured out how to make it work very well, although unfortunately with that you’re living in Sonos’ UI, not Apple’s.

Chicken & egg, perhaps, but the Airports of the last 2-3 iterations have been highly slower than competitive products…so no wonder sales were small. I still like the Airplay option of the Express line for easy device play-thru, but the Extreme/TC line certainly needs discontinuing.

Report: Apple's video strategy has Hollywood confused

And there are those who still say that Apple without Steve has not lost a step. As each year now goes by, it seems less & less like Apple knows where to go next or how to get there…becoming just another run-of-the-mill tech company.
I love the Apple TV but the lack of true consumer options in programming (not linked to cable subscriptions) and the almost legalese approach to searching for any type of content (what is and is not searchable), makes it feel no better than Roku, Chromecast, etc.

If the new TV App represents their best effort, an unnecessary and time consuming extra layer to select a TV show or movie… then Roku can rest easy ;-)

Apple begins sale of 'SIM-free' unlocked iPhone 7 models in the U.S.

You shouldn’t have any issues on most international GSM carriers — the SIM-free iPhone appears to be the same model that’s sold by Apple internationally as well. Apple actually maintains a list of compatible carriers and LTE frequencies at http://www.apple.com/iphone/LT…
