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.
