Apple releases its iOS 8.4.1 update for supported devices

Apple has rolled out the latest version of its mobile operating system today. iOS 8.4.1 is already on its way to all supported iPhones and iPads.

iOS 8.4.1

This release is much more low-key compared to the big showcase that was the release of iOS 8.4, which came out at the end of June with built-in support for Apple Music, the new streaming service from the American tech giant.

Considering it’s an x.x.1 version, iOS 8.4.1 has one goal, which is fixing bugs. The official changelog makes this obvious from the onset.

It is interesting to note that all of its improvements are all related to Apple Music. One fix solves an issue that could prevent iCloud Music Library from working, while another is for a bug that used to hide added music if the service was set to display offline tracks only, and now there’s a way to add songs to a new playlist if there aren’t any playlists to choose from (this should have been possible from the beginning but better late than never I guess).

A bug used to show different artwork for a singluar album when Apple Music is accessed on different devices, this bug has been ironed out too, as have been several problems for artists when attempting to use Connect. Lastly, tapping Love will now work as advertised when you’re listening to the Beats 1 radio station.
