You might not have to wait that long to try Apple’s rumored Beats-based streaming music service. Tipsters tell9to5Mac that the folks in Cupertino are “currently considering” a launch for the all-you-can-hear offering in tandem with iOS 8.4, rather than holding off for iOS 9 or later. This new software would supposedly arrive some time after the Apple Watch release in April. That may still sound distant, but Apple just gave developers its first iOS 8.3 beta (yes, even before 8.2 has shipped) — if 8.4 happens at all, it’s on a fast track.
