iTunes in the Cloud music comes to Japan

updated 04:15 pm EST, Tue February 21, 2012

Changes hit desktop, mobile iTunes apps

The Japanese version of iTunes in the Cloud now supports music, says Macotakara. Users of the desktop and mobile versions of the iTunes Store can now visit a "Purchased" tab to redownload previously-bought music. Prior to this week, only apps and books could be redownloaded in Japan, likely because of rights issues.

If Apple has managed to clear extra music rights in Japan, it could signify that the country will soon get iTunes Match. The music upload/streaming service is otherwise available in every country that has iTunes in the Cloud. Because people can upload music not already on the iTunes Store, though, Apple may need more comprehensive rights from record labels.
