iTunes 11.1 is out today, just in time for the launch of iOS 7. With iTunes 11.1 comes iTunes Radio, Apple’s answer to Pandora and Spotify. iTunes Radio lets users stream custom radio stations over the internet. The feature has been part of iOS 7 since its introduction at WWDC 2013.
iTunes Radio will be a free, ad-supported service but there is an option to pay for iTunes Match, which provides iTunes Radio with an ad-free experience. iTunes Match is Apple’s service that scans your music library and will offer the matched tracks for download from any of your Apple devices. The service costs $25 per year.
