Apple seeded the first beta version of iOS 8.4 in April. It includes a completely redesigned Music app with features such as an all-new Mini player etc.

We were expecting Apple to release iOS 8.4 on Monday, just after the WWDC 2015 keynote. But Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac, who has an impeccable track record when it comes to Apple related rumors, reports that iOS 8.4 release has been delayed, and may now be released in the last week of June.

Interestingly, he also claims that iOS 8.4’s all-new Music app will also come integrated with Apple Music, the music streaming service that Apple is widely expected to announce at the WWDC 2015 keynote.

Apple may offer a lengthy free trial period for its upcoming streaming music service, after which it will cost $10 per month. Most recently, though, a report surfaced that Apple is still trying to finalize negotiations with music labels to get the Music streaming service off the ground and loaded with music for subscribers. Apple is also rumored to release an Android app for Apple Music.

We were expecting Apple to unveil its streaming music service at WWDC 2015, but expected it to be bundled with iOS 9, so it does come as a surprise that Apple Music will be available before the end of this month.

Earlier today, Pangu team demoed the iOS 8.3 jailbreak at the Mobile Security Conference (MOSEC) in Shanghai. But they plan to release the jailbreak only after iOS 8.4 is released.

So let’s hope iOS 8.4 is released soon.


Apple has announced during WWDC 2015 Keynote that iOS 8.4 will be releasing on June 30th.
