A day shy of its one-month anniversary, Apple Music has reeled in more than 10 million subscribers on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and iTunes, a report said Monday.
Anonymous sources connected to major music labels provided the supposed adoption numbers to HITS Daily Double, saying the swift and substantial uptake is surprising even for Apple. The data reportedly comes directly from Cupertino, which is sharing streaming statistics internally with content owners.
Today's El Capitan beta version, build 15A235d, comes less than one week after Apple seeded its last round of prerelease software for developer assessment, a round that included iOS 9 and watchOS 2 builds.
Today's beta 5 build carries over the same areas of focus from Apple's previous beta version as well as known issues with Photos, Apple ID and Language localization and formatting. Many problems can be traced back to iCloud syncing, likely due to incomplete or incompatible backend assets also in testing.
While most people tune in to Apple's WWDC keynote to figure out what's coming in the next version of the company's operating systems, the event is a developer's conference. Apple genuinely uses WWDC to introduce a lot of new technologies that end users will never experience directly.

The security bug can be exploited by a logged-in attacker or malware on the computer to gain total unauthorized control of the Mac. It is documented here by iOS and OS X guru Stefan Esser.
Apple added an entry for the Canton Road Apple Store to its regional Hong Kong webpage on Wednesday, complete with a picture of the site showing a large decorated construction barricade.
