The thing about Apple's 'one MORE thing'? It's a streaming music thing

Anyone know if it supports caching?

It would be nice if it could cache a few days' worth so you could load it up on wifi and have it play when you're on vacation without needing cellular data or when out of cellular range.

Most streaming services have too many annoying restrictions in how that works because the labels are super paranoid about people copying the cached music. Since iOS doesn't allow access to the filesystem maybe Apple was able to negotiate a more sane implementation.
