    For some reason, on iOS 8.4 Public Beta, it won’t let me update to iOS 8.4 with Apple Music normally. Is there any fix to this? I tried a hard reset and iTunes says my software is up to date…

      Mine does the same, well I have the update requested part

        Well, I downloaded iOS 8.4 from a third-party site, and now my phone works, but it took me forever… It was so annoying, I hope Apple gets a 8.4.1 fix soon…

      Same issue, Beta user and can’t get the 8.4 update. iTunes thinks i already have it and no matter what I do, I’m stuck at “update requested”

    • James Russel

      Yes exactly! I’ve been scouring the web all day and this is the only place I’ve found people experiencing the same thing as me

    • Ari Saenz

      Exact same problem, how ironic that the beta users will be last to use apple music 🙁

  • Ari Saenz

    I found a fix for the problem, in general, go to profiles and delete the beta seed profile, then restart your iphone and it should be all good in like 5 min from restarting.

      I totally should have done that, not spend 2 hours downloading iOS 8.4 from a third party site. :/
