This release includes improvements and fixes to Apple Music.
– Resolves issues that could prevent turning on iCloud Music Library

– Provides a way to add songs to a new playlist if there aren’t any playlists to choose from
– Resolves an issue that may show different artwork for an album on other devices

Further, Apple has reportedly patched a total of 40 security flaws including the ones used by the TaiG team for their untethered jailbreak tool for iOS 8.4. So, if you have jailbroken your iOS device using TaiG jailbreak, it is recommended to stay away from this update.
iOS 8.4.1 is likely to be one of the last updates to the iOS 8 operating system. The successor iOS 9 is currently in testing and is scheduled to be released in the fall alongside new iPhones.
