iOS 6 is now out with the final official build, and we can finally confirm that iTunes Match has become a streaming service.

In iOS 5, when ever you played any song it would start playing right away, but also download in the background. Songs take up space, and you can store them for offline listening, but most of the time you just want to play music just like you do with Pandora, Spotify, Songza, and others, but with your own iTunes library. Now you can in iOS 6, as you simply tap a song to play it, listen to it, and the file isn't stored on your device. The iCloud button to download is available for songs on any album, but it's just an option and not a requirement. This functionality was available on the Mac, and now comes to iOS.
