    It seems like DRM is the biggest difference between the two. It's still pretty crazy how labels allowed iTunes Match to exchange our own songs for DRM-free 256k AACs. Basically, it should be OK to ditch iTunes Match for iCloud Music Library as long as you can keep your Apple Music subscription around. Considering customers in the Philippines only needs to pay around $35 every year, it should be an easy decision.

    Also, for those who are wanting to unsubscribe from iTunes Match, you can contact Apple and they'll refund your remaining months.
