Windows/Mac OS X: iTunes 10.3 beta is officially available, bringing with it a portion of the new iCloud features known as “iTunes in the Cloud”, but only the features that matter if you buy content from iTunes.

More specifically, this beta version of iTunes in the Cloud includes the Automatic Download feature, which, as the name implies, automatically downloads songs and books purchased from the iTunes store to all your Apple devices, ranging from the Mac to the iPad (though music doesn’t work outside the US, predictably). You can also re-downloaded previous purchases (music, apps and books) using iTunes purchase history (without charge).

  • The feature to download previous purchased music is not available outside of the US. Apps and Books are available.

    “Music features are only available in the US”

    (from the Apple web page for 10.3)

  • Keep in mind that legal jusrisdiction on YOUR data on the iCloud is set where that data is stored. If, as it looks, to be in the US, then all sorts of horrible US government agencies can have access to it. Users need to consider this before blindly agreeing to this.
