Apple Releases iOS 8.4.1 With Apple Music Improvements and Bug Fixes

Apple today released iOS 8.4.1 to the public, roughly six weeks after releasing iOS 8.4 with the new Apple Music service and one month after first seeding the first iOS 8.4.1 beta to registered developers for testing purposes.

Today's iOS 8.4.1 update is Build 12H321 and can be downloaded over-the-air through the using the Software Update tool in the Settings app on iOS devices.

iOS 8.4.1 is a minor update that includes under-the-hood performance improvements, bug fixes, and security updates. Throughout the testing period, no outward-facing changes were discovered in the beta, and Apple's release notes specifically mention only Apple Music improvements and fixes.
This release includes improvements and fixes to Apple Music.

- Resolves issues that could prevent turning on iCloud Music Library
- Resolves an issue that hides added music because Apple Music was set to show offline music only
- Provides a way to add songs to a new playlist if there aren't any playlists to choose from
- Resolves an issue that may show different artwork for an album on other devices
- Resolves several issues for artists while posting to Connect
- Fixes an issue where tapping Love doesn't work as expected while listening to Beats 1
It's likely iOS 8.4.1 will be one of the last updates to the iOS 8 operating system. iOS 9, iOS 8's successor, has been in testing since June and is on track to be released in the fall alongside new iPhones. iOS 9 builds on the features introduced in iOS 8 and adds both new content and underlying performance improvements.

I actually like Apple Music. Keep forgetting to cancel Spotify, but haven't used it in about four weeks.

That's because iOS 8 in general is a mess, a complete disaster. Welcome to Tim Cook's Apple.

Grow up! It's hardly that bad. iOS 9 is great if u are so deeply concerned.

I bet the bugs I've had since IOS 8.0 / Sept 2014 haven't been fixed yet. But that's ok, just keep fixing the new bugs. Screen orientation working properly on a stock text app I understand is way too much to ask almost a year after release.

I've learned to like the freezing effect of the stock keyboard as well. I consider it a feature you don't even have to turn on: Auto Pissed Off.


I haven't seen these issues. Maybe there's a problem with your device. Have you tried all the logical sensible steps to try and resolve it? or are you one of these people that won't bother and just whine?

I pay a premium with Apple products so I expect top notch quality. If I want crappy bug ridden software to work with, I'd just use the $220 Moto G Android.

Same here.

The curated playlists are great and much better than the Spotify ones. Discovery of new music through the playlist recommendations is far superior to Spotify.

The interface is a bit more complicated than what we are used to from Apple, but I have no problem with it now. So overall, like it a lot.

Of course not.... But some things need an OS update and can't be fixed on the server side.

Sorry but Spotify is much simpler and cleaner than Apple Music. Sadly.
Apple Music reminds of a the old Microsoft. Bloated!!!

Seriously.
This is Spotify: Song is kicking. Go to "go to artist" and hear all of the artist's songs. or go to Album and check at the LP.
Apple Music can't even get that right.

Spotify's UI is clean. I like.

Come on Apple. Wanted to love it but it fell so short.

You don't need to convince me. I have tried both and found Apple Music superior. That it is different for you is great, but please don't present your opinion as fact. Judging from the likes on my post I'm certainly not the only one that prefers Apple Music.
