Apple has just released iOS 8.4.1 to the general public. The minor software update can be downloaded now over-the-air or through iTunes.

According to the release notes, the software offers improvements and fixes for Apple Music, which was launched with iOS 8.4 in late June.

Here’s the complete list of changes:

  • 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

This will be the final update to iOS 8. Currently in beta testing, iOS 9 will arrive to users some time early this fall along with the next-generation iPhone models.

Also released today was OS X 10.10.5. It’s available to download through the Mac App Store. The software offers improvements to Mail, Photos, and general security.
