    I installed iOS 7 Beta 2 on my iPhone 4S a few weeks ago and am now trying to update to beta 4.

    1) Do I first have to install beta 3 to get beta 4 or can I skip straight to 4?

    2) At first, when I would go to "software update" in settings it would give me the error that checking for update had failed. Now it just says I have the current version of iOS 7 installed. My UDID is not registered. Would registering it allow me to do OTA updates? If it doesn't can I download beta 4 and install it through iTunes without getting the "you are not registered to use this software" error?

    Try rebooting then check for updates again.

    I already tried that a few times and it still says "current version of iOS 7.0 installed"

    You must be on beta 4 then. Go to Settings > General > About

    What is the build number next to 7.0 for the "Version"?

    Sorry but you're out of luck. Once the next beta is pushed out, OTA downloads for the previous one are stopped and you can't just jump "levels'. I just tried it on my moms phone it wouldn't let me go to beta 4 or 5 so I had to download it manually.

    Tl;dr, go get a computer and download it

    Thanks. What I ended up doing. Do you know if OTA updates will work now with the current beta installed?

    No one can really know. They work for most most of the time, but for some some of the time they don't.

    They should. They work on my verizon iPhone 5 but I keep up to date since I visit this forum regularly. My mom's works too but since she was behind it just stopped working, I'm sure it's a bug
