Whether you’re an iOS or an OS X developer, today is shaping up to be a very fun day.
Apple has released a third beta version of iOS 8.4 for developers to play around with a month before WWDC. Included in this new beta version is a revamped Music app with a cleaner look and added functionalities. According to 9to5Mac, the updated Music app will also host new iterations of iTunes Radio and a Beats Music-inspired streaming service. The new Music app is expected to be announced at WWDC on June 8 and publicly available later that month.
If you’re a developer signed up for the iOS beta program, the iOS 8.4 beta 3 update is available now in Software Update as well as in the developer center. Public beta testers should be getting the iOS 8.4 update 2 on their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch rather soon.
But that’s not all! Additionally, Apple released a new beta build of OS X Yosemite 10.10.4. You need to be a registered beta user running earlier versions of the beta to get this new build, number 14E17e. The Mac App Store’s Updates icon should indicate an update ready for download. According to 9to5Mac, Apple notes that the focus areas in this beta update are Photos application, the Migration Assistant, and Arabic and Hebrew language support.
