  • 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.

      if you don't know what your doing? i say don't upgrade yet and wait for the final release / golden master. it might ruin your phone if you don't know what you doing and beta can be buggy , unstable and not supposed for daily use. only for test

      Control centre is way more responsive on lock screen! Used to be almost impossible in my otter box.

      OTA still doesn't work on my iPad 4. Had to use iTunes to do the beta 3 update too. It worked great on my iPhone 5.

      The ModMyi app works better. Now I don't have to quit the app every time I change email notification settings in favorites.

      Awesome. Mail notification bubble is actually working correctly. And lockscreen track control works again.

      Wallpaper works fine for me. The black bar bug seems to be fixed too from when setting the wallpaper in settings. If it is zooming in slightly on your wallpaper this is because of the parallax effect. Turn on reduce motion in accessibility settings and it won't zoom in anymore.

      Anyone else with wifi problems? On beta 3 it wouldn't connect and now beta 4 won't recognize the password. I did soft and hard restarts and reset network settings and no fix. My home wifi connects fine but not my work wifi. I think it might be because my home is wpa2 and my work is wep.

      Do a search on the forums or do a google search. This has been covered a million times since the beta 1 release.

      Sorry for not clarifying but I don't want to lose all my data. Can u just shift update straight to b4 without first restoring to 6.1.4

      Yes but if you back up you won't loose anything if you do need to restore.

      I noticed a big signal improvement in my case once I updated to beta 4, somebody else? I tested it in one place where I work that I always had two signal balls with beta 3, now with beta 4 I have 4 signal balls sometimes full signal.
