According to a report on MacRumors, Apple is set to release a new iOS 9 beta seed that includes support for Apple Music next week. The news comes via Apple’s Eddy Cue who said in an answer to a question on Twitter that a new iOS 9 beta is coming early next week.
This would tie in with Apple’s normal beta seed timetable, with the last beta seed being released on Tuesday, June 23, meaning that next Tuesday would make it two weeks exactly.
Currently, members of Apple’s developer program are finding that the current iOS 9 beta doesn’t support much of Apple Music’s features.
Cue has also been answering some general questions about Apple Music on Twitter, such as saying that auto-renew can easily be turned off to avoid being charged when your free trial period finishes. Cue also said that...

MacRumors writes about a new report by DisplayMate that shows just how much better the Apple Watch Sport’s Ion-X Glass display is than the more expensive Apple Watch versions’ sapphire displays when it comes to bright lighting.
According to the report, the Apple Watch Sport’s Ion-X glass has much lower reflectivity and much higher contrast than the higher-end Apple Watch models with sapphire displays.
While both models have exactly the same OLED displays internally, the different covers mean that they each react differently in bright light. In fact, DisplayMate found that the Apple Watch with sapphire display reflects 74% more ambient light than does the Ion-X glass of the Sport.
In dark environments there is very little difference between the two.
Here’s a quote from the...
AppleInsider reports today that Apple has once again invited children aged eight through to 12 to participate in its annual Apple Camp. The series of 3-day retail store workshops has been developed by Apple with the aim of teaching children how to create rich digital content on iPad and Mac.
Just as with last year’s camp, participants in the 2015 Apple Camp can sign up to attend “Stories in Motion with iMovie” and “Interactive Storytelling with iBooks” workshops that will show them how to get the most out of multimedia content creation on iOS and Mac.
In “Stories in Motion,” children will learn how to use the iPad to storyboard ideas, shoot footage, and create a soundtrack in GarageBand for iOS. Having created the content on the iPad, the students will then be shown how to use iMovie...
It's an amazing Tuesday for Apple! They just had a massive release of multiple products and more starting today. First up, Apple just launched new music related products, services and updates. Apple Music is the big launch, and it also includes a newly improved Music App. Apple Music is similar to Apple's former Beats Music. The service allows users to listen to an unlimited amount of music for $9.99 per month or $14.99 on a family plan which supports up to 6 people.
On top of Apple Music, a Beats 1 radio station comes along for the ride. Beats 1 features 24-hour live human-curated music at no added charge. It also includes Apple Music Connect which is a social networking platform for artists to interact with fans and share content.

Apple just announced an upgrade to their iTunes Match service which should please fans. They are increasing the song limit to 100,000. This will occur when they release iOS9 later on this year. Here's a quote with a few additional details,
Cue reminded followers that Apple Music will also get Match-like capabilities, meaning you can fill in any missing streaming music with your own tracks. Though the service will launch tomorrow with a 25,000 song limit, it too will support 100,000 songs when iOS 9 comes out.
That's good news for users who want song-matching in Apple Music but not iTunes, as it'll save them the $25 per year iTunes Match subscription. Also, though Apple has resolved many disputes with labels and artists, a lot of music will still be missing -- which users can buy from...
