New in iOS 8.4.1: Apple Music, iCloud Music Fixes

The overwhelming response to Apple Music, especially Beats 1 radio, has been positive. Regardless, a range of mostly small issues have popped and iOS 8.4.1 has been released to address a majority of those problems.

For what it’s worth, my kids are absolutely loving it and I have been hugely enjoying saying the magic words, “Siri, play _____” and have Apple Music play whatever I want.

In fact, Siri and Apple Music even found Elton Britt, a long dead hillbilly crooner and yodeler, for my dad. He’s in his ’80s and the look on his face when “his music” started playing on my iPad was priceless, utterly brilliant!

That said, iOS 8.4.1 is pretty much all about Apple Music and tweaking the experience.
