Mini Player for Music
The new Mini Player for the Apple Music app sits at the bottom of this screen right above the tabs, allowing users to keep looking for new music and navigating in the music app while you listen to and control music.
With the Mini Player active you can still move through the Music app and choose other items to play next without interrupting your current playlist.
This small bar includes a pause, play option and three dots that let users choose to Start a Station, Add to My Music, Show in the iTunes Store and Share the Song through a normal iOS 8 sharing screen to social media or by Airplay.

MANY times i upgrade my IOS and my phone in Recovery Mode Again I upgrade fro 8.4 and its again in Recovery mode. So any one have any solution ?

3 things I can’t stand about this update:
1) you can’t find your saved radio stations.
2) you don’t get a free 3 month trial unless you pay for the fourth month up front.
3) no home sharing.

The elimination of the shuffle feature on I-Tunes s inexcusable
07/06/2015 at 7:12 am
You can tell siri “shuffle my songs”

I know right!!! They took off all the great features from my music library… This update pisses me off!!
07/04/2015 at 9:15 am
So basically 8.4 (apart from bug fixes) is a music feature update thats all.
07/04/2015 at 7:19 pm
Battery issues…. less than 12 hs…

“You may not need all these bugs…”
“We did not run into any problems with this personally…”
“…they might help push you over the fence…”
You’re 99% there.
As when reading instructions translated from Japanese, it’s the 1% that makes it fun.

I can’t replay all my songs from one artist if they are on different albums. I have to manually go in and start each song individually if they are on different albums which is ridiculous. Used to just hit play on an artist and it would play every song I downloaded by that artist.

HOLY SHIT ME TOO IT PISSES ME OFF SO MUCH!

Tell Siri “shuffle all (artist name) songs”

Why is the iMessage fix involved in this? shouldn’t it be 8.3.x? That sort of thing should be kept out of software releases that many people don’t want to do just because it’s easier for Apple. No, thanks.

I love the new version of this 9.0
07/07/2015 at 6:48 pm
After this update my 6plus freezes regularly, if I page down too fast in Facebook, Twitter, cnn … It will continually freeze for about 10 seconds. I am also having issues with playing videos, he screen goes black and nothing happens.

I don’t like this update because in my playlist, i was able to repeat a song or repeat my playlist where i didn’t have to keep restarting to hear the same song or playlist. I used that feature a lot sometimes i like to repeat a song and it would play continuously but now it doesn’t do this and i can’t seem to figure out where it is or did they get rid of it. I went to the apple store today to see if they could help me and they were not help because they didn’t even know what to do. it would be nice when they do these update that they would at least inform the apple employees and support people what they got rid of and how to go about fixing or finding a replacement for what they got rid of. I really liked the feature where i can repeat a song and playlist. and i am not happy about this.

I tried doing what the author said to start a Genius Playlist – it is not there. Is the subscription required to use the Genius feature now?
07/08/2015 at 12:34 pm
And there is already jailbreak for 8.4: https://goo.gl/ifK4bJ

This is crazy how would they make and update and remove the shuffle opinion that is just plan wrong hurry up and put the shuffle button back on immediately ! !!
07/10/2015 at 11:14 pm
I want my shuffle back I listen to my music at work and don’t have time to make a Playlist I also don’t feel like I should pay for this new version just to listen to my music so please put the shuffle back on my ipod

My iPhone 6 worked just fine, but over the last few days, battery life has suddenly become ridiculously poor. Battery gets drained even if the phone is charging. I have made changes to the settings in the phone, so I will see how it goes.

IOS 8.4.1 is a nightmare. Phone is now crashing, hanging, apps are freezing and then unfreezing. Returned my Apple Watch (as have hundreds of thousands). Rapidly losing faith in Apple. Please figure out how to resurrect Steve Jobs.
08/21/2015 at 6:13 pm
I sweAr if Steve Jobs could come back jst once… Clean Apple, send those idiots out… Apple was the best with Jobs.. Please come back
