    He didn't say the new seed would arrive Tuesday. In fact, the omission of a date makes it seem pretty likely that iOS 9 beta users won't get Apple Music until the following week (at the earliest).

    I never said he said that, I said POTENTIALLY meaning it would arrive Tuesday and gave my reasoning for the guess. Did you just skim what I wrote and miss that?

    One of my biggest points right now is Apple Music access, but I love using the beta as a daily driver.

    Hopefully it does arrive Tuesday as well.

    I don't think it's unlikely at all. It'll probably be unlikely to see any changes other than the addition of Apple Music (probably just a rehash of Beta 2).

    Apple has done a beta a week apart before too. So it's not unusual.

    They're going to want as many people as possible to sign up to Apple Music straight away. I'd be incredibly surprised if they don't add iOS 9 beta support for the 30th

    Yeah I agree with mdc151209...Apple is going to want EVERYONE to sign up for Apple music so I also believe they will release a new beta to us. And this would not be the first time a beta was released within a week of each other. So I believe it will be here on Tuesday with 8.4 as well!

    The tweet Eddy replied to specifically asked if Apple Music would be available to beta users on June 30th so the new seed could come around then.

    Not to beat this dead horse, but as a Marketing/PR guy my guess is that Eddy chose his words carefully.

    "A new iOS 9 seed will support Apple Music"

    "a new" : meaning you will need to update to another version different from that available, and not necessarily even beta3, just a new seed.

    "will" : meaning at some point in the future, not the date specified (June 30).

    I downgraded to 8.4 because I wanted Apple Music, and hated the battery issues with iOS 9 b1; would love to install b2 and teeter on doing it but I want to know for sure if it will mean missing Apple Music on day 1.

    Cue has not responded to several follow ups asking for clarification if the seed will arrive on the 30th.

    I don't think they want to waste their time creating branches.

    DUDE, that's what I told myself too.
    But even though his words are much more vague than our interpretation, the whole community assumed it would be available on June 30, and I think it will, or else he knows it's going to deceive a lot of people.

    They don't usually release two versions of iOS on the same day...

    It has happened before, with betas and point releases.

    When? I don't remember this happening. The servers seem to have enough trouble with one major public release, and I'm thinking 8.4 may cause a lot of traffic.

    You do remember iOS 9 beta 2 massive update issue right? I am a lucky person who received beta in no time. But many users need to wait for a better time to update.

    This is just a beta, which means the user base is very limited.

    So, I hope I will receive a new beta in June 30th but I don't want to hold my breath.
