Over the weekend 9to5Mac reported that iOS 8.4—with support for Apple’s new streaming music service—will be available to users from 8:00 am Pacific Time on June 30th. The earlier-than-usual OTA is to accommodate the launch of Beats 1, the streaming radio station that will begin broadcasting at 9.

Another bit of news revealed by Apple Music SVP Eddy Cue is that, at launch, Apple Music will have a music match feature with the same 25,000-track limit as the current $25/year iTunes Match service. Apple is working on upping that limit to 100K for iOS 9.

Even if you don’t want to shell out $9.99 USD/month for Apple Music, you can still trial the service at no cost for three months. After that, Beats 1 will remain free for all users.
