    Continuing the tradition from previous betas....

    Post any bugs, new features, or changes in iOS 7.1 beta 4 that you notice compared to beta 1/2/3 and/or iOS 7.0.4. I'll keep this post updated with everyone's findings

    New features / changes / fixes:
    - Auto-brightness bug fixed
    - Purchased list bug in App Store fixed.
    - Updated / shinier "Slide to Unlock" and "Slide to power off" text
    - Smoother scrolling in Messages conversations
    - Reminder app no longer has to be running for the geofence to work

    The shift key in beta 3 took me about a week to get used to.

    Does it fix Safari crashing on Apple's own website?

    See here for more info:

    Also a video:



    Finally, how much free RAM is available on 7.1 beta 4 compared to iOS 7.0.4 under the same conditions. A fresh reboot with no apps running besides a system app that checks the RAM usage?

    No idea, don't use auto-brightness.

    Not sure, seems fine. Never crashed for me in the past.

    Could be just me, but it looks like the "> slide to unlock" text on the locked screen seems to animate in a somewhat different fashion now.

    The "Slide to unlock" animation seems a lot more intense.

    I should also mention that the beta 3 bug where the names of the apps were missing in the Purchased section of App Store seems to have been fixed.

    What was the issue with it before (and just in beta 3 or even before that)? Seems like it was working as it had before for me throughout all the 7.1 betas so far.

    The Log Notes reports that the Safari Bug has been fixed, a Bluetooth thing in the 64bit devices running 32bit apps, and the iMessage bug that doesn't show when a message failed to send.

    Then why are you making it a big deal? Whether I made it before it finished downloading or a couple minutes later when it did finish would've made no difference.

    Don't worry. They have contributed nothing of interest either

    Perhaps you could stop derailing the thread then? Report whatever it is you think you have an issue with to the mods and move on, rather than filling an otherwise useful thread that already had a number of on-topic and useful posts with a bunch of pointless petty banter.

    Anyone getting server errors when trying to update? Went through fine on my iPad but iPhone won't go past verifying...I imagine the servers are getting hit pretty hard or something

    Also interestingly my iPad let me update without agreeing to the terms, the verifying update box came up over it before I could tap agree. One last Beta 3 bug?

    Took a while for it to even get going and start downloading on my iPhone. More than likely simply more load at times, as you mentioned. Just got to keep on trying, or try a bit later at some point.

    Beta 4 I've heard has a lot changes behind the scene, not visual changes. This is good, Apple need to fix the crashes!

    I asked this in a previous thread, but anyone else having issues with the music app freezing when clicking artists with large discos? It only seems to happen to The Beatles (1.38 GB), oddly enough artists with 1 GB open.. has happened since beta 3, still happening in beta 4.
