After The iOS 8.4 beta 4 , iOS 8.3 Jailbreak Release Could Happen By The End Of This Month

Apple seeded iOS 8.4 beta 4 to developers this afternoon. It is available immediately to those developers running iOS 8.4 beta 3 via Settings → General → Software Update. It is also now available as a download from Apple’s redesigned Developer Portal.

The iOS 8.4 beta 4 release, which is build 12H4125a, comes nearly a month after iOS 8.4 beta 3. Apple announced at yesterday’s WWDC keynote, that its new Apple Music streaming service was set to debut on June 30th. This means that we’ll see the final version of iOS 8.4, in which Apple Music will officially arrive to the public, before the end of the month.


Here are the iOS 8.4 beta 4 release notes:

App Extensions


  • App extensions need an arm64 slice to run on 64-bit devices. If you try to run the armv7 slice on a 64-bit device it won’t work.
  • Apps need to have an arm64 slice if the bundle contains a framework that both the app and the app extension link against.


Fixed in Beta 4

  • Using Siri to control iTunes Radio does not work in this beta.

Known Issues

  • Home Sharing and Genius Mixes are not currently available.
  • AirPlay streaming may not work.
  • It’s not possible to start a station from a song or artist.
  • Station sharing for iTunes Radio is not available.
  • The iTunes Radio tab may unexpectedly appear within Search, even if iTunes Radio is not available in your country.
  • The Music app may forget its place when you go to the Home screen and come back.
  • Ads in iTunes Radio may display on top of Up Next.
  • The downloaded icon is not displayed in Songs view on the iPad when you select “Make Available Offline.”


Known Issue

  • “Play <Song> Siri” requests from a watch are failing for a few days when the iPhone has a new install of iOS 8.4. Workaround: Request playback of Artists or Albums instead of a specific song.



When linking against iOS 8.3 or later, any code that relies on layout information (such as the frame) of a UIButton subview when the button is not in the window hierarchy will need to send layoutIfNeeded to the button before retrieving layout information (such as button.titleLabel.frame) to ensure that the layout values are up to date.


Known Issues

  • Content stored in iCloud may not appear in your library after signing in.



A bug where continuous background location updates fail to update has been resolved. If your Watch app relies on continuous background location updates to function, it is recommended that you update your WatchKit extension deployment target to iOS 8.3 and submit your app with Xcode 6.3.

Known Issues

  • Creating an animated image using the UIImage method animatedImageWithImages:duration: and then playing the animation using startAnimating ignores the duration and plays back as fast as possible. Workaround: Use startAnimatingWithImagesInRange:duration:repeatCount: instead.
  • The appearance of default notifications on a Watch differs slightly from the appearance of default notifications in the Simulator.

During its WWDC keynote, Apple announced that Apple Music will launch on June 30 alongside iOS 8.4, which means a new jailbreak could release around that timeframe as well.

An iOS 8.3 jailbreak release has been up in the air over the last couple of months ever since the update released back in early April, but it seems like we’re closing in on an official release for a new jailbreak.

Apple announced that its new music streaming service, called Apple Music, will launch on June 30 and will come with the iOS 8.4 update. While the company didn’t specifically say that iOS 8.4 would arrive on June 30, it’s safe to say that it looks to be the case.

This will also be the perfect time for a jailbreak to release, either for iOS 8.3 or iOS 8.4, mostly because it wouldn’t give Apple time to patch up the exploits used, and the company would have to wait until iOS 9 to do so. That’s one of the big reasons why we probably haven’t seen a new jailbreak in a while.
