  • iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 4 Arrives


    Two weeks after iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 3, developers will be busy digging through Apple's new release of iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 4. On a rather consistent track record, Apple has been dishing out updates lately, the bi-weekly update comes as no surprise. Apple also sneaked out a Ma OS X 10.6.4 for Developers along side this release as well.

    And of course to no surprise, there are no documented changes that come along with this, so we'll have to wait for developers to leak out any changes they find along the way.

    Gizmodo has noted that this update seems to begin to take advantage of the folders and uses them by default now. The clock, calculator, compass, and voice memo apps are now sitting in a folder called Utilities. Makes sense, I kinda like that. Unfortunately I don't have access to the beta, so I will depend on you guys to dig further into the new update.

    iPhone OS 4.0 should be available "this summer", and one can only assume that a jailbreak will follow a few days/weeks afterward. Older devices will unfortunately not be compatible for the update, but there has already been rumors of people porting the OS over for backwards compatibility. Nonetheless, this still even means the old and some new devices, will not be able to use all the new features added.

    Any of you guys who have access to the Beta, please let us know if it's getting more stable.

      im all for against piracy etc but whats the big deal about getting developer accounts from people? I understand selling them on here is wrong but giving them away is an issue?

      Its a lot better if you wait till the actual release or buy a dev license from a developer bc it will be alot more stable and u'll get the full package.

      lol sometimes it's a necessity. And I usually only do it while at a stop light or something. And don't think i get distracted, im almost always the first one moving as soon as the light changes. I've never had a wreck and only one speeding ticket. SO yes a little texting in driving isnt that bad. At least im not texting, putting on make up, playing with the radio, and going 15 below the speed limit like half the women on the road..

      On Topic:
      I would love to have a confirmation that the update isnt limited to mac's anymore. I dont really have the time to test for y'all but i could possibly do it around 11 or so tonight when i get to the house. And By limited i mean you have to use a Mac computer or a Virtual Machine which is how it has been on betas 1-3.

      Pretty sure that would be a violation of the rules, since the firmware has not yet been released and is subject to Apple's NDA.

      You can't backup on itunes with a Beta firmware installed unless you have the developers SDK installed on your computer.
