iOS 8.4 with Apple music has been released

  • Jul 08, 2015

We had been expecting the release of iOS 8.4 for some time and it was officially announced on 30 June and it was pretty much awaited by music lovers since this operating system allows music streaming at a different level with Apple Music.

Music application has been lifted to a completely different design, with new mini player addition you can see what is playing and control the playback options while browsing in your collection lists. The favoured Up Next feature from iTunes 11 has been brought to iOS and that allows you to be informed what will be playing next from your Music Library.
You will be able to make selections and manipulations of what you would like to be playing next according to your wish for the time and it is a all new service of Music application in recently released iOS 8.4 and I would highlyu recommend it for music fans.

The integration of the Apple Music streaming service with the new Music application has added a new dimension and Apple Music became a service consists of three main services named, Apple Music, Apple Music Radio and Apple Music Connect. The free stations in the radio are Apple Music Radio and Beats 1. The functions do not cover only these, new features added goes a long way from following artists to view artist feed on Connect without the compulsory purchase of the membership for Apple Music. The beats radio service runs live from 8.00 a.m.

Apple has also announced that the iOS 8.4 has more to offer on iBooks and many bug fixes has been dealt in this updated operating system.
iOS 8.4 is compatible with the following devices in the below list:

•    iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus
•    iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad 2, iPad (third-generation), iPad (fourth-generation), iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina display
•    iPod touch 5G

We don’t know exactly when we will have a jailbreak tool for this version of iOS yet so I would recommend not to download the iOS 8.4 until a jailbreak tool released and confirmed to work with iOS 8.4. The most recent jailbreak announced by TaiG 2.x had been functioning for iOS 8.1.3 and iOS 8.3 but no information provided yet for compatibility of it on iOS 8.4.

Update 1:
