Some developers and beta testers running the latest beta of iOS 8.4 are reporting seeing popups for Apple’s upcoming Apple Music service from within the Music app.
When opening the app, there’s a popup for Apple Music that prompts users to start a three month free trial. Tapping on that option leads to another screen that lets users choose either an individual plan for $9.99 for a family plan for $14.99, but there’s no way to actually sign up for a plan. Choosing a plan simply grays out the option and does not allow users to progress further in the signup process.
Some users report seeing the popup as soon as the iOS 8.4 beta was seeded on Wednesday morning, while more users reported seeing it as the day went on. The popups are likely due to Apple’s implementing some of the backend tools needed to support the service at its June 30 launch.
Apple Music will include on-demand streaming music, the Beats 1 radio station, and Apple Music Connect, where artists can share lyrics, backstage photos, videos, or even release their latest song directly to fans.
