After 4 beta versions, Apple has finally released the iOS 8.4 for public bringing Apple Music to the fans. Apple Music for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch requires iOS 8.4, so you need to update your device to this latest version to be able to use the new streaming service.

The platform is not only about music streaming as it offers global radio station and social platform for artists to connect with fans. Apple Music will be offered as a FREE trial for the first three months after which you will have to pay $9.99 every month. Apple TV and Android versions of the service are expected to be available in the fall.

Update for jailbreakers:
If you have jailbroken your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch on iOS 8.1.3 - iOS 8.3, it is advised to wait a little before you update to iOS 8.4. TaiG released iOS 8.3 jailbreak tool a little early. However, it is not likely that Apple could have patched up all the loopholes. But, to be on the safe side, stay away from iOS 8.4 until TaiG team officially updates about it.
