By , Jun 30 2015

Beats 1 hasn’t officially launched yet, but if you’ve upgraded to iOS 8.4 then you’ll be treated to the station’s pre-launch hold music.

What else to play while we wait for Zane Lowe’s inaugural show? Brian Eno’s Ambient 1: Music For Airports. If you’re quick, and hit the ‘Radio’ button, you can listen now.

There are reports that Lowe has been uttering the immortal words ‘testing’ over the top, be we haven’t been able to confirm that ourselves.

Apple Music should be available now as long as you’ve updated to iOS 8.4. Beats 1 launches properly at 5pm BST.
