Apple announced its new music streaming service earlier this month.
In addition to the Apple Music service, non-subscribers will still notice a redesigned Music app an Up Next feature for managing current music playback and access to Apple’s Beats 1 streaming radio station. With Apple Music, iOS 8.4 includes artist activity and access to a streaming music catalog built-in to the Music app.
Beats 1 broadcasts 24/7 to over 100 countries. Beats Music subscribers can migrate their music libraries to Apple Music using the new software.
Apple Music, which is available for free for three months, starts at $9.99 per month for individual users. Group plans through Family Sharing for up to six users cost $14.99 per month.
The update also includes a fix for the "Unicode of Death" bug discovered last month.
