New iOS 9 beta will bring Apple Music next week

Those who are already running Apple’s early iOS 9 beta are currently missing out on Apple Music, which made its debut with iOS 8.4 on Tuesday. But Apple’s Eddy Cue has confirmed that a new iOS 9 seed with Apple Music will be rolled out “early next week.”

Apple did not confirm that Apple Music would be available in iOS 9 at the time of its launch on June 30, but lots of users who have already updated their devices to the developer preview were unhappy that they were unable to access the new service.

It is possible to downgrade to iOS 8.4 to get Apple Music, of course, but those who do not want to do that can wait for a new iOS 9 beta that will be rolled out next week, Cue has confirmed. The release is likely to be made available on Tuesday, which is the day Apple normally seeds new software.

While Apple Music isn’t yet available in iOS 9, however, Beats 1 radio is. Users can use the existing Music app and tap the “Radio” tab to access the Beats 1 station, which is fully functional in iOS 9. You just cannot stream songs or albums.
