Part of Apple's iCloud rollout
The iTunes in the Cloud service is now available in several more regions around the world, users say. Canada, France, Australia and the UK are among the main territories, but other countries are said to be getting the option as well. When available the option lets people re-download music, apps and books from iTunes, or else have the content automatically pushed to multiple devices.
iTunes in the Cloud a part of Apple's iCloud, which is in the process of rolling out today. In essence iCloud is an umbrella for all of Apple's new Internet-based services, which range from iTunes in the Cloud and Find My Friends to backup and sync of critical data such as email, contacts and calendars. Many of these functions will be inaccessible, however, until Apple releases iOS 5 later today.
