  • Apple Seeds iOS 7 Beta 4 to Developers


    Following the last minute predictions this morning, Apple Monday seeded iOS 7 Beta 4 to developers for testing.

    iOS 7 Beta 4 brings bug fixes and stability improvements to the operating system. The software should only be installed on registered iOS developer devices.

    iOS 7 Beta 4 was expected to be released last Monday following Apple’s two-week seed increments; however, due to an intruder hacking into the Developer Center, the Developer Center was shut down for a week and the seed was delayed.

    Those running iOS 7 Beta 3 can now visit their Settings application and navigate to General>Software Update to find the update waiting for them. There, the update can be downloaded over the air (OTA) and installed without needing to connect to iTunes.

      B4 is downloading now, should be done in a few minutes. I'm seriously considering popping this on my 4s at this point.
      Not sure if you know. Spotlight now is on the home screen swiping down on the screen. I'm using iPad 2. I've had no lag but I've had crashes. I would like a weather app too not sure if that's supposed to happen or not

      A friend of mine who was stuck with 6.1.3 did the earlier beta, was actually pleased with it. I'll tell him about this one.

      I like everything but I hate the dock bar and how big the notification banner is, other then that I have no complaints. I hope they add the ability to pick which apps you want quick access in the command center

      I like that iPhone 4S users have live photo filters now in the camera app. I don't use them but I thought it was neat.

      That would be a real nice feature.

      Did a little reading and someone said if u update to a beta apple puts out. It will expire in time and if u haven't updated to the new beta. Your phone will be stuck bricked until u update to new released beta. Any truth to that??

      Not really sure but i think you can always put your phone into DFU mode and restore back to ios 6.1.x ( 3 or 4 depending on your device ).

      I dont think anyone can "brick" his phone nowadays... Unless he has a broken button or a locked iphone...

      My phone is registered to have these installed however I went back to 6.1.4. Anyone have a download link that doesn't require a dev account

      All I want to know is if apps work yet. Most don't. I never had that problem on other pre releases. Anyone know if most apps still crash? Preferably "defender of texel"? :-P

      It is true but you can just downgrade back to 6.1.3 or 6.1.4. Fixes it right up. My friend had the problem because he refused to update from Beta 1 when I told him to.

      Yeah I was aware of that, but on beta 3 on my iPad 2 it would show the search box but no results would ever come up .. now with beta 4 it's working!

      I'm biting the bullet now and installing on my 4s where I can get some real world use of it .. since I know you can downgrade, I figured why not.

      Mine is still installing, but that's odd.. I thought live photo filters were intentionally not included for 4s

      What apps have you had issues with? the only one I've had to crash on me so far is the weather channel app on the ipad .. We'll see how that works. If I have too many of my regular apps fail on my 4s I'll definitely be rolling back to 6.1.3

      You should most definitely NOT be posting links to unauthorized iOS Beta downloads. It's considered warez and will put you on a fast track to BANville on Modmyi.

      I personally provide ipsw downloads for people whose devices are registered to my Dev acct who need a restore. Other than that, sorry Charlie.

      +1. Either the search option or add the word works.

      Battery life has been good. I wish u could turn off the slight wallpaper move on the springboard.
