Mr. Phil hasn’t announced this yet, but after opening iTunes, we’re now presented with an option to upgrade our library (of UMG music) to DRM-free iTunes Plus status! It looks like it costs $0.30/song to upgrade to iTunes Plus, but this also includes music videos at $0.60/video! So there should be no DRM restrictions on those as well. So happiez.
Alright, it’s just been announced, so here’s the run down:
- Pricing at $0.69, $0.99, and $1.29 based on the labels and how old the song is
- All songs in iTunes will eventually be DRM-free
- In addition to pricing, as previous rumored, you can now download all music from your iPhone over 3G instead of just Wi-Fi only!
