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.

Along with new wallpapers, there is also an option for "Group Message" in the Messages Settings.
When this is activated, sending a message to multiple contacts is listed as a "Group MMS Message", whereas with the option disabled, a message to multiple contacts is listed as "Group Message".
I don't really see what the difference is but it was just a little quark I found.

Also, Multitasking is working with Apple Branded Apps much better and switches seamlessly.
Overall stability seems good.

Was running 4 beta 3. Had to downgrade back to 3.1.3. Navigon would not work correctly. Most applications would crash after a few mins., and last but not least, I needed tethering back. So went back to 3.1.3+JailBroken+MyWi and I'm back to being a happy camper.

By the way, how fast of speed are any of you guys that have premium accounts on megaupload getting? I had a premium a year or so ago and just don't use the site enough these days to re-enroll in it. That' being said, on my "regular" download i'm still hitting a constant 600-700 k/s.
