Apple released iOS 10 beta 4 to developers today and as with any major beta update, it includes several small changes and tweaks as Apple aims to refine the operating system ahead of its public release this fall.

Today's update, available as an over-the-air download for those who installed the first three betas or the beta configuration profile, features new emoji, new keyboard sounds, Notification Center tweaks, and more.

We've rounded up all of the new features in beta four in the video below, so make sure to check it out to get a quick look at what's changed. We're also listing all of the changes in the post below.


Emoji - There are new emoji designed to promote gender equality. Many professions and activity emoji are now available in both male or female options. Emoji have a new texture and many emoji have seen slight design tweaks.

New emoji textures. Old emoji on left, new emoji on right.

Control Center - There's an intro screen when opening Control Center for the first time that instructs people to swipe left to access the different Control Center cards.

Haptic feedback - In iOS beta 3, Apple added haptic feedback when pressing the power button on the iPhone to lock it. In beta 4, this feature has been removed. There's no longer a haptic feedback buzz when locking an iPhone.

Accessibility - In the Accessibility section of the Settings app, the Color Filters option includes a set of colored pencils to show off the different color options instead of a color grid. This gives a better idea of how each setting is actually displayed on an iOS device.

Notification Center - The widgets screen, accessible by swiping to the right in the Notification Center, now displays the date. In previous versions of iOS 10, the date was not available.

Home - In the Control Center, the Home app icons have been tweaked again.

Keyboard sounds - Keyboard sounds have been slightly tweaked. Backspace now has a distinctive sounds unique from other key press sounds, and there's a new sound for space, return, shift, and number/emoji shift.

Wallpaper - Some older wallpaper options have been removed and the mountain wallpaper with stars from an earlier version of iOS has been re-added.

Why? You can't feel the actual real motion and click of the button itself?
No, not that well, I've got an Apple leather case and it dampens it a lot. As do other cases btw.
[doublepost=1470086360][/doublepost]Perhaps it will be a new function that you can put on/off in settings.

How do you turn space/backspace keyboard sounds off? Without turning device to silent mode of course...

Apparently a bug. Annoying 2 /3 weeks ahead then

I hear they removed the wheel gun emoji and replaced it with a green water gun. What kind of crap is that? I used it frequently.
And the gun emoji can still be used.

Must...contain...urge...to purchase new iPhone due to new emoji.
For Pete's sake Apple/MacRumors, give us something interesting!
Plenty of other things aside from emoji.

Where's the third home card?
For Control Center? I believe that's for HomeKit if you have that enabled and have some connected devices.

In a literal sense, you are correct. It's deselected on my phone but I still get the sounds.
You are still getting keyboard click sounds? Then something isn't right. Try restarting your device and/or selecting and deselecting that setting again to see if that might help.

Every time I see the shot in the video of the iPhone on the extreme corner of the table, I end up saying, "DON'T PUT THAT ON THE EDGE! IT MIGHT FALL IF IT RUMBLES!!!"

I mean, it's still a nice shot, but I get worried every time. XD
