Technology giant Apple has confirmed that it will begin seeding iOS 8.4 OS on 30 June beginning 8am PST, thus scotching rumours about various launch dates for the new iOS increment.
According to a 9to5Mac report, Apple will also launch a revamped version of the Music App on 30 June, along with its exclusive Beats 1 worldwide radio station which will begin streaming on the same day.
It is interesting to note that Apple normally seeds iOS updates at 10am PT.
The 9to5Mac report states that the new release schedule is because Apple will begin streaming services on its Beats 1 worldwide radio station at 9am PT on 30 July.
With Apple Music, users can enjoy music streaming service free of cost for the first three months, post which they will have to opt for a paid subscription by shelling out $9.99 (£6) per month.
The Cupertino-based company's senior vice-president Eddy Cue recently took to Twitter to announce that the song library in Apple Music will be revamped to support 100,000 songs, from the existing 25,000-song limit (in iTunes Match).
However, this aspect will go official only when iOS 9 is launched during fall this year. As of now, iOS 8.4 is confirmed to be launched with Apple Music having the same 25K song limit library.
Existing users, on the current iTunes Match music service, will not be required to separately subscribe to Apple Music, once the latter goes live on 30 June. The new music streaming service will incorporate all features present in iTunes Match.
