International iTunes Match and a new wave of sales of iPhone 4S

Over the last couple of days there have been several interesting developments, which I just did not have time to write. I hasten to correct, because on Thursday, Apple released outside the United States of its new music service that is part of iCloud, and on Friday started selling iPhone 4S in 20 countries in all corners of the globe.

International iTunes Match

Within a month after launch, iTunes Match was only available to U. S. residents. Most likely, this was due to the presence (or absence) of agreements between Apple and the music content owners. However, on Thursday, Match has finally become officially appear in the international iTunes Store. At the moment it is available to customers of Canadian, Mexican, British, Irish, French and Spanish accounts. It should be noted that the possibility of Apple’s signature all necessary licensing agreements for the international launch Match for such a short time is impressive.

To register and access to new service users will need to install the latest version of iTunes for Mac or Windows, open the sidebar multimedia Apple store and found in the section «Quick Links» the link marked «New» (if the item does not, then your Match country is not yet available).

After clicking on the link you will have a small registration process and give the computer some time to scan and recognize your music library. Keep in mind that working with a large number of tracks will take a long time.

ITunes Match provides access to the media library user iDevaysah and Mac computers and Windows (not more than 10 devices that are linked to one account). Service tries to match your music collection with iTunes Store catalog and in the case of finding correspondences provides access to the free download tracks in the format of iTunes Plus (DRM-free and c bitrate 256 kbit / s). But if the media player can not find anything like it loads the music file from an unidentified iCloud.

Running iPhone 4S in 20 countries

Official sales of iPhone 4S launched on October 14. After a while the lucky ones in the U. S., Canada, UK, France, Germany, Japan and Australia joined 22 other countries, people, and then – still 15.

And finally, Apple begins sales of its fourth wave of brand new smartphone in Bahrain, Vietnam, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Qatar, Kuwait, Malaysia, Morocco, United Arab Emirates, Peru, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Philippines Chile and South Africa. What is surprising in the list of countries still do not have China, a very important market for Apple, as repeatedly stated company executives.  It is expected that all issues will be addressed before the end of the year.

The high cost of mobile gadgets quite a negative impact on demand in Russia. Unfortunately, no exact figures are not causes, but the Resellers were not happy with the start of sales.
