    Apple may be close to releasing iOS 7.1 beta 4 to developers, according to a report by BGR. The new beta is reportedly in the hands of testing partners and is slated to be released to developers as soon as tomorrow. The beta will be the fourth of a reported six planned developer builds for iOS 7.1.

    BGR has a bit of a hit-or-miss track record when it comes to predicting iOS releases, but the timing for a new iOS 7 beta release makes sense. Apple tends to release new beta versions every few weeks, and tomorrow would be two weeks since the release of iOS 7.1 beta 3. It should be noted that the build number mentioned by BGR for the fourth beta, 11D5127c, is actually for the current iOS 7.1 beta 3. A possible typo, however, doesn't invalidate the entire rumor, and therefore it remains plausible that the beta 4 is still in the pipleline for a developer release tomorrow.

    The source is BGR, of course they will most likely be wrong.

    Looking forward to the memory fixes! My iPhone 4S has problems keeping 3 apps running in the background and those are not even games.

    Usually I don't complain much about the content of the news articles but I'm really not getting why this is important for us to be informed that another beta is being released to developers?

    Hopefully it will be undoing most of the awful changes in Beta 3.

    Even more to the point, this is a "may be released by tomorrow" article. You can't even trust the source. It does seem a little less than front page worthy...

    memory issues and crash fix would be nice -- Safari on iPad Air constantly crashing, and reloads web tabs more frequently than my original iPad Mini.

    PUT BACK THE ALPHABETICAL SCROLL BAR IN THE MUSIC APP UNDER ARTISTS. Or have a way to turn off every track from every album. Worst change since 6.4. Does anyone know if this is a jailbreak feature? Because I will do it for this, alone.

    Hopefully this will fix the camera swipe lock screen issue.

    Has anyone else discovered this, but if I swipe to the camera from the lock screen to get to the camera and take a horizontal picture, when I get back to the lock screen and swipe to unlock I get a horizontal keyboard in portrait mode making it impossibe to put in my password because only half of the keyboard shows at one time!

    I have always had the scroll bar. Still do in 7.1 b3. See my post from August: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=17737782#post17737782

    Perhaps there is a threshold for the number of songs you have versus when the scroll bar shows. I have 724 artists in my list at this time.

    I hope they change the caps lock / shift key colours.

    Whoever thought that changing the icon from white to grey (the UI equivalent from on to disabled), was more concerned with it matching the other keys; it's confusing. Is grey on, or off, or disabled?

    CapsLock/shift and backspace keys on the keyboard should both be grey and white when pressed.

    Yes, I have seen this, even in 7.1 b3. If you can repro this every time, please submit a bug if you haven't already. http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html or https://developer.apple.com/bug-reporting/

    You have to have 50 artists or more for it to appear now.
