Apple has released an official iOS update for all users with iOS 8.4.1 now available. The update follows the major iOS 8.4 release which included an all-new Music app with Apple Music, the new subscription music service, plus Beats 1, Apple’s Internet-based radio station with live DJs. Apple initially started testing the changes in iOS 8.4.1 with developers in mid-July. The maintenance update includes several issue fixes for Apple Music and Beats 1.

Specifically, Apple names fixes for enabling iCloud Music Library which keeps music and playlists collections up-to-date across devices, a hidden music issue due to offline music preferences, album artwork problems, and favoriting tracks from Beats 1. Additionally, Apple says the update includes a better method for adding songs to a playlist when none are available and several fixes for artists posting to Apple Music’s Connect feature.

The update is available for all iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches capable of running iOS 8. It can be found from the Settings app under General and Software Update for updating over-the-air, or through iTunes on the Mac or PC for updating without much free storage available.
