As what iOS users expected, Apple released its new iOS beta 4 on Monday, Jul 29, 2013, almost 3 weeks after the release of beta 3. The release time period between the 2 betas is longer than that between previous betas. If you have noted that Apple's developer site has been attacked, you should make sense that the release follows the Developer Portal going back online late last week following an 8 day outage.
Just like the previous beta 1, beta 2, and beta 3, the fourth beta of iOS 7 is released only to Apple's registered developers and applies to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The new seed, beta 4, is available via the over-the-air Software Update function in the iOS Settings app, and it can be installed by visiting the Software Update section in the Settings app of devices that currently have iOS 7 installed.
It is said that Apple will release iOS 7 to the public this fall. However, through some other ways, you can also access the iOS 7 beta if you want the experience before its available day. It is also reported that together with the release of iOS 7 this fall, the new iPhone 5S, a new iPad and possibly a new entry-level iPhone dubbed "iPhone 5C" are coming along.
The previous betas have brought about a number of UI tweaks and changes in apps like Music, Mail, Weather and the Notification Center. The performance improvements have also made the firmware faster and more reliable than previous releases. Yet there are some issues with them, so of course there would be some issues left for the iOS 7 beta 4 to address.
