watchOS 2 (Beta 5) – seeded to registered developers alongside the fifth beta of iOS 9, late Thursday, finally adds the ability for users to choose the period for which the device’s display will stay active.
Songs streamed through Apple Music will, from this week, be counted towards the collective popularity and chart position of entries on the Billboard music charts.
Apple, who is set to unleash an official music-streaming client designed for Android – this Fall, is perhaps unsurprisingly now hiring for software engineers that will eventually be responsible for the overseeing and development of these software solutions.
Apple has begun advertising a sale on the U.S iTunes Music Store that consists of albums made by artists signed to Apple Records.

Prior to today, Apple had offered the ability to replay certain individual (and notable) shows from its 24/7 radio effort via the featured slider in the service’s “New” section.
This weekend though the company has launched a separate section on Apple Music, called “Beats 1 Replays.”
The new section, again accessible from the featured carousel in Apple Music’s “New” tab, offers listeners of the service replays for all of the station’s most-recent artist led shows, with each show available to playback in full for a limited-time.
So if you have happened to miss a show on Beats 1 that you really wanted to listen to, and were looking for a way to catch up – you might just be in luck!
