While Apple is still a ways away from its iOS 9 software that is rumored to feature the IPv6 network management system, the company looks to be ready to unveil its latest update ,iOS 8.4, complete with Apple Music and it’s coming sooner than you think.
“In an announcement that is literally music to Apple fans’ ears, an Apple executive says the debut of the new Apple Music streaming service Tuesday will be accompanied by the launch of iOS 8.4 and the Beats 1 radio station,” reported Steven Musil of CNET.
Apple Music was center stage during the latest keynote but the company is also looking to bring its users an updated iOS software that will be able to handle Apple Music. The update is mandatory for users who intend on using the streaming service that is set to rival that of Spotify and other competitors.
“In response to queries posted on Twitter, Eddy Cue, head of iTunes, Apple Pay and Apple’s other Internet software and services businesses, confirmed that a new seed of iOS 9 would support Apple Music,” reports Musil.
“He also said Apple plans to increase the track limit on iTunes Match from 25,000 songs to 100,000 with the launch of iOS 9.”
Album sales are still on the decline due to downloads and streaming and even paid downloads has begun to fall along with physical album sales.
The release looks to be set for 8 AM on Tuesday June 30. Other updates aside from the Apple Music capability has yet to be announced but added updates to fix bugs can most likely be expected upon the release of iOS 8.4.
