iOS 8.4.1 release patches jailbreak, fixes Apple Music

We’ve been tracking some major bugs with Apple Music as it has rapidly grown its user base. But while plenty of attention has been on the streaming music platform and its viability (much less the viability of the whole streaming industry at-large), we can’t forget that the iPhone holds a multitude of features. Some of them weren’t intended to be exploited for jailbreaking purposes. It seems that Apple has gotten on the case with the iOS 8.4.1 update.

If you’re an Apple mobile device user and haven’t gotten the rundown of what was patched for Apple Music yet, here’s the changelog as it will be presented to you:

  • Resolves issues that could prevent turning on iCloud Music Library
  • Resolves an issue that hides added music because Apple Music was set to show offline music only
  • Provides a way to add songs to a new playlist if there aren’t any playlists to choose from
  • Resolves an issue that may show different artwork for an album on other devices
  • Resolves several issues for artists while posting to Connect
  • Fixes an issue where tapping Love doesn’t work as expected while listening to Beats 1

Expanding upon the album artwork issue, one iOS user who updated his phone found that Apple Music displayed the proper album artwork for CD-imported music:


The security content of the update featured patches over exploits used in iOS 8.4 jailbreak efforts from TaiG. Hit up the source link for details on that, too.
