iOS 8 Beta 4 Reportedly Coming Monday, July 21




As iOS 8 proceeds through development and testing, the fourth beta version will be seeded to developers on Monday, July 21, according to BGR. A release on that date would mark a two-week interval since the release of the third beta on July 7, down from a roughly three-week interval between the second and third betas.

BGR regularly publishes reports predicting future release dates for iOS betas, and while the predictions are sometimes off by a day or two as was the case with beta 3, they are usually close to the actual date barring any last-minute schedule changes by Apple. As a result, it is reasonable to believe the fourth beta should arrive early next week rather than the following week.

According to BGR - oh dear. His predictions are about as good as British weather forecast system...

ios 8 has been very buggy on my 5. Surprisingly so. Constant freezing and forcing reboots. I did not load it on my 5S so i am unsure of any problems on that.

These release dates are pretty regular. You really need to refer to BGR?!?
BGR is always wrong so I am betting it will be tuesday the 22nd or the week after haha.

So very true, due to the fact betas come in 2-3 week intervals a monkey could have predicted that

I know. As an aside, you wouldn't think it'd be that hard to predict British weather -- just always say it'll be miserable and you'd get it right 99% of the time.

Help!

I have the DP of iOS8 on my old iPad2 and that wallpaper is just plain creepy. It really makes me feel like I'm drowning! I don't get the point of it. Maybe the wallpaper for the final version will be splashing out of the water like a dolphin. That would be better.

iOS 7 beta 4 was the big turning point in stability for iOS 7, so I'm hoping for the same for iOS 8.

I'll be sure to plan my whole day around this momentous event. If the rumor is wrong, I'll be devastated.

You could have at least linked it for him as part of your sarcastic response.

Yeah I could've, but it would have defeated the purpose of a sarcastic response.

A typical British forecast that covers most outcomes, rather like the analysts predictions!
