Apple Reveals the Beta iOS 8.4 With Revamped Music App
It’s only been a week since Apple released its latest iOS version 8.3 to the public. Now, they have already seeded the first beta version of iOS 8.4 to registered developers for testing purposes. The new version boasts a highly hyped revamped music- app with enhanced look and features. According to the release notes from Apple, we understand that the redesigned music app is extremely user friendly. The updated features include, a streamlined iTunes radio (which helps in music discovery), creating customized playlist with beautiful album arts, a brand new mini player (which helps in controlling what’s playing now) and new playback features (which allow a user to simultaneously browse their music collection while listening). Now Playing has a stunning new design which portrays the album art the way it’s meant to be, with the option of streaming your music wirelessly using Air Play while you are still on Now Playing. Also, finding the next song on the list has never been easier with the new ‘Up Next’ icon in Now Playing, which helps you to reorder your play list or even skip a particular song. Global Search is as easy as a tap on the magnifying glass, where the search results are organized conveniently to help you choose the perfect song of your choice. The search option also lets you kick-start the iTunes Radio Station directly. The recently released iOS 8.3 version has changes in Emoji picker with the addition of over 200 new emojis, wireless CarPlay, updated fix for messages and Wi-Fi, along with screen orientation. The most appreciated feature of the update was the additional language and country support for Siri, where a lot of improved pronunciations have been included for the various street names in Map. The music app on the beta iOS 8.4 version comes ahead of the rumored Apple’s music service which is supposed to be showcased in the Worldwide Developers Conference this June. The streaming service is expected to be priced at $7.99, slightly lower than its competitors. Hopefully, more information will come under the limelight as the conference date approaches. Stay tuned to get more updates on the upcoming iOS 8.4 version and apple streaming services.
