Developers were seeded a sneak peek of the upcoming iTunes radio service. Introduced at WWDC 2013, this program is supposed to be ad-free and contain free music-streaming capabilities.

Techcrunch was able to explore the program on the desktop, giving it great marks. They claim its operation will be as easy as the mobile version. Users can access some preset stations as well as create their own. A direct link located on the lock screen will lead you right to the iTunes store. It is unknown if any of these features will stay when the actual fall release is announced.

The fourth generation of iOS 7 also was rolled out today. Typically, Apple releases a total of four betas for the release, so this could be the last one. The program had numerous UI alterations, which illustrated that Apple acknowledged previous complaints from developers. Notable tweaks include bolder Airplay icons as well as size changes for newsstand magazines. BGR has a full change log chronicling the refreshments iOS 7.4 contains. The OS is available for iPad, iPod and iPhone devices. Rumors have surfaced that two more betas could arrive before the fall, but we'll update you when we finish playing around with these new features.
