Apple's testing a new version of iTunes with its upcoming iTunes Radio service built in, and is now giving it to developers to test.

The feature was bundled inside a beta version of iTunes 11.1, which went up on Apple's developer site Monday.

iTunes Radio was introduced alongside iOS 7 at Apple's annual developer conference last month. The service lets users stream music stations for free, and with no advertising if they're a subscriber of Apple's iTunes Match service.

iTunes Radio will be available on just about every Apple device.

Initial beta versions of iOS 7 and iOS for the Apple TV already included iTunes Radio integration.

The new version of iTunes comes alongside a fourth beta of iOS 7 , which went out to developers on Monday morning. It's unclear if the new iTunes will come out before that mobile software makes it to the public.
