    Apple this morning released the fourth beta of iOS 13 for developers, introducing bug fixes and adding and refining iOS 13 features.

    Now that we're into the fourth beta, changes and updates are getting more minor, but there are still some small but notable tweaks that are worth highlighting in today's beta.

    - Quick Actions - There's a refreshed look for Quick Actions on the Home screen, which adds a new "Rearrange Apps" option that lets you quickly get to the wiggle mode that allows apps to be moved around.


    - Quick Actions Menu Size - The menu that pops up when using a Quick Action is also smaller in size with less obtrusive icons that have also been relocated to the right side of the menu interface.

    - 3D Touch Settings - In the Accessibility section of the Settings app, there are new options for 3D Touch in the 3D & Haptic Touch section (which was previously just 3D Touch). There's a new "Touch Duration" section alongside the sensitivity slider. The Touch Duration option changes the amount of time it takes to reveal content previews, actions, and contextual menus.


    - Share Sheet - Some minor design changes have been made to the Share Sheet in iOS 13, tweaking the colors and adding some transparency.


    - Voice Messages - When using the option in Messages to record a voice-based message, there's a new icon for the option. It's now a waveform rather than a microphone icon.


    - Widgets - When editing Widgets in the Today View, you'll see a new look for the edit button, which is now pill-shaped rather than circular.


    Know of a feature that's new in iOS 13 beta 4 that we left out? Make sure to let us know in the comments and we'll update this article.

    We need a "Touch Duration: off" option for 3D Touch enabled devices…

    So is it stable enough that will not kill my iPhone 8 Plus?
    It's the only device I could use as my dev test device, but I don't want to be left without a working phone.

    I am a fan of the new share sheet. I find it a lot more useful.

    As an introvert, it’s irking me to have all my contacts right there. It sounds a bit bad, but what can I say! I don’t need to see them to think of them when sending something. This Share Sheet is made for extroverts.

    I’ve been playing around with the beta. The vertical options is a curveball. It remains to be seen if it’ll be equally or more effective than the current horizontal panel, or if it will be as cumbersome as it appears…

    That said, it appears there are suggestions based of usage history, and that could be useful.

    Can't wait for it to launch. I'm ready to send all those unknown numbers to VM!

    As an introvert myself it doesn’t bother me in the slightest. There are still a few people I keep in contact with and this makes it a lot easier to share.

    Well all the apps that previously stopped working for me seem to work in this release. :) Need more time to see if Safari works better too.

    And yes i know it's a beta and some stuff is bound to not work right yet. (Since people usually get defensive, as soon as you mention something not working in beta)

    As another introvert, I like this share sheet because it removes a step from sending something to my wife or daughter.

    Very unlikely you’re going to “kill” your iPhone. The betas have been pretty good, but there are some occasional glitches. Not a showstopper for me in the least, but some people have lower tolerances for glitches.

    Are there any new mouse settings?

    Also, for anyone with the Magic Trackpad 2, can we pair it over bluetooth yet? Having to connect it through USB-C is a little frustrating :D

    Same. Prefer the old one.

    I am not sure about your specific trackpad but I was able to connect an HP wireless mouse through bluetooth right from Beta 1.

    I’m with you. I wish there was a way to turn that part off. I don’t need to see a bunch of faces staring at me everytime I launch the share sheet. More often than not, I’m not using it to send an iMessage.

    No one likes change. It's better, and you'll get used to it.

    I like it for the most part but dang the icons need to be on the left not the right. And now with b4 they changed quick action icons to be on the right too. Boo.

    ok, so they aren't removing 3d touch in ios 13, right? 'cause several people have said that it's not in the betas.

    It just removes a step when contacting people. I guess you can argue they should make it optional and let you customize it, but I think the majority of people will find it useful.

    Having contacts at the top when I never use that - and never use iMessage, and notthrough sharing - have a pill icon for contacts. Not a row.

    also I preferred horizontal rather than this long vertical list. And some things can't be hidden and yet never use.

    Yeah, it seems that most mice can connect over bluetooth, but Apple's magic trackpad can't for some reason. It only even shows up as a pointing device if it's connected by wire, and won't stay paired if unplugged.

    When you create a handwritten note in the notes app (iPadOS), the title is automatically recognised based on your handwriting. I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere else?

    Been using iOS 13 since Beta 1 on my main phone with very few issues. iOS Beta 3, I actually experienced the most issues with many unexpected crashes and restarts.
