Apple has been releasing new updates steadily since the first ever developers build of iOS 8, and considering how much buggy the iOS 8 beta 3 had been, the new version took some time for release. The Apple iOS8 beta 4 is now ready for developers to download and play with. It comes around two weeks after the third version of beta saw the light of day, and as you might expect it brings with it various minimal improvements.
The iOS 8 features comes in a wide range that includes improved integration with OS X through Continuity, a Quick Type Keyboard, a Health app, Family Sharing features, interactive notifications and improvements to several apps like Safari, Mail, and Messages. Some of the other iOS 8 beta 4 features includes a redesigned Control Center and the introduction of a new Tips app. The iOS 8 beta 4 includes several minor interface twists and modifications that make the beta feel both faster and more refined.
A comprehensive list of the improvements in the new device is gathered that have been amalgamated for the release of this device. In order to find out about all of under the limelight tweaks in iOS 8 beta 4 so far, make sure to check out the iOS 8 app for Hidden Features Roundup.
In case the compatibility of software with the iPhone devices is unclear, the only device that is found incompatible with iOS 8 is the iPhone 4, while the updates are available for download on the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4S, iPod touch fifth-gen, iPad 2, iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina Display, iPad mini, iPad 4, and iPad 3. The inclusion of iPad 2 comes with a surprise and iPhone 4 has already accommodated the three updates earlier so cannot be updated further; moreover the device is no longer present in the stores.
The release of the iOS 8 beta 4 was speculated perfectly by BGR on July 21, 2014. Currently, the iOS 8 is only available to specific registered developers, but the operating system is expected to be released to the public this fall after several beta modifications and iterations. As the history predicts, Apple is more likely to launch iOS 8 beta 4 beside new iPhones, and possibly the much-rumored and awaited iWatch.
