Apple releases iOS 8.4.1 with fixes for Apple Music and iCloud Music Library

Apple on Thursday released to the public iOS 8.4.1, a maintenance and security update that the company said fixes issues with its recently launched Apple Music streaming subscription service related to playlists, iCloud Music Library, offline music and more.




iOS 8.4.1 is now available to download through the Settings app on an iPhone or iPad. It is identified as build 12H32.

The update resolves issues that could prevent turning on iCloud Music Library. It also fixes an issue that hides added music because Apple Music was set to show offline music only.

The Music app also gains a way to add songs to a new playlist if there aren't any playlists to choose from, and it resolves an issue that may show different artwork for an album on other devices.

Apple also said it fixed issues for artists while posting to Connect, and squashed a bug where tapping Love doesn't work as expected while listening to Beats 1.

The minor update is likely just a stopgap until the impending release of iOS 9, which remains available solely to beta testers ahead of its anticipated September launch.

Only two betas of iOS 8.4.1 were issued to developers before Thursday's launch.

The last major update to iOS, version 8.4, launched on June 30, bringing with it a redesigned Music app with support for Apple Music and Beats 1 radio.
