WWDC 2015 is very close now but Apple isn’t finished releasing betas for iOS 8.4. The company on Monday released its third beta for iOS 8.4, which previous betas have shown will be mostly about integrating Apple’s new music service that it hopes will become a legitimate rival to Spotify.

Apple will likely release iOS 8.4 sometime after WWDC, where it will reveal its revamped Beats Music and iTunes Radio. 9to5Mac’s sources say that although Apple will reveal the new services at WWDC on June 8th, they probably won’t be released until sometime later in the month.

The new Beats Music will be an important release for Apple, which over the past few years has fallen behind Pandora, Spotify and other music streaming services. Apple released iTunes Radio two years ago but that so far has failed to come close to the dominance of Pandora in the music streaming market.
