Ahead of its WWDC in early June, Apple on Monday released the third beta of iOS 8.4. The company’s newest software introduces a revamped Music app, which we took an in-depth look at last month; beyond that, not much else is new in the most recent update. Some surprises could pop up, but otherwise users should expect a big redesign of the Music app, which includes a Mini Player, Up Next functionality and likely some bug fixes and performance enhancements.
Still no word yet on Apple’s rumored subscription-based music streaming service. There’s been a lot of controversy about the company’s rumored service over the past several weeks, and whether or not Apple will have enough deals in place to make an announcement during WWDC in June.
At this point, it’s hard to imagine the service being competitive considering how popular alternatives such as Spotify have become. But Apple could supposedly undercut the competition, so that may be an area where Apple has a leg up.
We’ll keep an eye out on today’s beta and update this post if anything big is discovered.
