Apple has just released the second iOS 8.4 beta for developers a few minutes ago. It was two weeks ago that we met iOS 8.4 beta 1 with the new design of the app from Música, and three weeks ago we saw the release of iOS 8.3 to all users. Today’s beta is also the first beta to be available to the public beta testers .
This is the build 12H4086d, and can be downloaded as an OTA update from iOS or from the iOS Developer Center as an image.
The new Music player comes with an updated design , and now displays artist photos in the Artists view and offers custom playlists. There is also a new mini player and a new interface for “It’s Playing”. Global searches are now easier and more powerful for discovering new music.
This new app was full of bugs, of which the vast majority have been fixed in this second iOS 8.4 beta , making the application much more stable.
What we don’t know yet is if iOS 8.4 will come with a streaming music service under its arm, from Beats Music, but fully integrated into iTunes, and with emphasis on exclusive content. But for that we would surely have to wait for the opening conference of the Worldwide Developers Conference .
