  • Apple Releases iOS 8.4 With Apple Music, Beats 1, and Other Improvements


    Tuesday morning, Apple has released iOS 8.4 as expected. The update is available via OTA (over the air) updating from Settings > General > Software Update, or by plugging your iOS device into iTunes and checking for an update. It can be installed on all iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads that support the iOS 8 operating system and comes in at around 222 MB.

    iOS 8.4 adds in Apple Music to the new redesigned Music application, allowing users to stream music from the Internet at a fair monthly price of $9.99. You can also sign up for a three-month free trial so see how you like it. The service competes with other streaming services like Spotify, but includes a lot of other perks that Spotify doesn't have, like inside sneak peeks from artists.

    iOS 8.4 also puts audiobooks in the iBooks application instead of the Music application, ensuring that all books of every kind are now in one application for ease of access.

    There is no word yet on whether or not iOS 8.4 is vulnerable to TaiG, so if you're happily jailbroken, you may want to hold off until an official announcement.

      Does this mean apple is no longer signing ios 8.3? I was just about to update and do the attest jailbreak. Am I stuck yet? Or is there a way to still get 8.3.

      Furthermore if I am stuck, should I just wait for ios 9 jailbreak?

      There's usually a little time after the update until they stop signing the last firmware. You have to download the ipsw file if you don't have it and shift-click on update in iTunes though. Sometimes they stop signing very quickly and other times it takes a week or more.

      I believe you can still jailbreak. You can see all of the signed firmwares for your device here: https://ipsw.me/signed

      I can't seem to find any options for music trial in beta 2, nor is there an update to beta 3. Looks like we're waiting

      But yes, beats 1 is now playing on beta 2


      --update-- also, I beta 1 there was an option when listening to a radio stations that said save for offline listening...or something like that, and when I clicked on it, nothing happened. That option is NOT there in beta 2.

      I haven't JB yet. I am on 8.3 right now. Just waiting to see if 8.4 is TaiG Compatible, if so I will upgrade and JB. Don't feel like doing this twice.

      On 8.4 on my work iPhone 6 and I have to admit, this is pretty bad ***! I will more than likely cancel my Spotify account and get the family account with Apple!

      Adding the music to your library is as easy as a tap, and available for offline play! The entire Apple music library at your fingertips?!? Yes please!

      I have had that problem before on my iPhone 4s when iOS 7 came out. Waited a few hours and it finally went through. Maybe the servers are busy.
