Apple releases iOS 9 beta 3 with Apple Music support

Apple has released iOS 9 beta 3 to developers today, further making inroads into the three-month iteration period between announcement and public release.

The update brings Apple Music support, which came to the public on June 30th with iOS 8.4, as well as bug fixes and performance improvements. While iOS 9 has widely been considered to be more stable than the betas of iOS 7 or iOS 8, there are still lingering issues with unfinished features and legacy apps.

Apple is expected to release a public beta of iOS 9 in the coming days which will be more stable for average users. As the company has been doing with public betas of OS X, Apple wants as many bugs worked out of its mobile operating system before releasing it to the wider public.

Along with new betas of iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan, Apple has released the third watchOS 2 beta, which promises significant upgrades to the Apple Watch later this year.
