    Apple today released the fourth beta of iOS 8 to developers, two weeks after releasing the third beta update and more than a month and a half since unveiling the new operating system at the Worldwide Developers Conference.

    The update, build number 12A4331d, is available through Apple's over-the-air updating system on iOS devices and can also be downloaded via the iOS Developer Center. Apple has also released Xcode 6 beta 4 and a new Apple TV beta.

    iOS 8 introduces a range of new features, including improved integration with OS X through Continuity, a Health app, Family Sharing features, interactive notifications, a new QuickType Keyboard and improvements to several apps like Safari, Mail, and Messages.

    iOS 8 beta 4 includes several new features, like a redesigned Control Center and the introduction of a new Tips app. For a full list of changes in the beta, make sure to check out our iOS 8 Beta 4 Tidbits post.

    iOS 8 beta 4's Monday, July 21 release date was accurately predicted by BGR earlier in July.

    Currently, iOS 8 is only available to registered developers, but the operating system is expected to be released to the public this fall after several beta iterations. Based on past history, iOS 8 will likely be launched alongside new iPhones, and possibly the much-rumored iWatch.

    Just maybe I need to update my iPhone. I think I'm still on Beta 1 or 2. Lol. That's only because my N5 is my primary device.

    I jumped on here to see if there was an update literally the same minute this was posted. Good timing. Also my update is 305MB not 253. Hmmm...

    It would be nice if the Yosemite public beta was released today...but a guy can dream...

    It is also interesting how they changed the picture in the article from iOS 8: Coming this fall to the screenshot.

    The screenshot is probably not a 5s, where the update is 305mb.

    Nothing on the developer site yet. I wonder if the Beta4 is going to be OTA only?!

    It can simply be posted there a little bit after the OTA is available.
