    I heard that from beta 4 on, they will be released every 3 weeks instead of 2.

    Monday, August 12, two weeks from today. Betas 2, 3, and 4 have all been released a month before their expiration date.

    according to blogs, two more betas will be released and the GM sometime in september. So i'm guessing two betas in August separated by 2 weeks, the GM in september, and the final release not far behind that.

    I hope they fix the lyric bug (lyrics don't change when you change tracks while lyrics are displayed) ...

    Not sure what that is, but you never know when the battery is actually done charging.

    When it's at 100% you are good to go.

    Not necessarily. In all previous versions of iOS when the percentage reaches 100%, it was never fully charged just yet. You would still see the lightning bolt icon, not the charger plug. There is always about a 15-20 minute top off charge.

    I can't say I recall it being 15-20 min, maybe 5-10 at best in my experience. So even if you were to pull off the phone without that extra top off charge what exactly are you losing, an extra few minutes of standby/usage time, if that? The difference is negligible enough that on average it doesn't really make a practical difference.

    True. But the question is, would it affect the battery over the course of the life if its not truly being fully charged?

    It does. You might as well pull it out at 99% but oh now we wouldn't do that now would we.

    Why not? You can do it then too if needed without any really noticeable effects.

    ----------

    For lithium ion batteries it wouldn't make a noticeable difference one way or another. Plus it's not like you'd be doing it like every single time, I'm sure that more often than not you'll notice it's at 100% long after it already finished that last bit of charging. So over the lifetime of the phone or even just the battery you won't even really be in that situation often and maybe sometimes at best. Overall it's basically more worrying about something that isn't even close to being significant enough to justify even a fraction of that worrying.

    Thanks, and I agree with you that its not that big of something to worry about, but it would be nice if the flashing bolt could come back. It just made it easier..

    That I agree with as well--there's certainly no downside to having that charging icon function like that providing some extra information, so to say.

    one thing that i hope will be fixed on the next beta

    i don't how it look on iPhone 5 but, they should make lyrics viewer wider on iPhone 4/4S, its so hard to read the lyrics like that, while it shows perfectly on my iPod touch 4 (iOS6)

    You heard? LOL from who?
    There is no real schedule but every 2 weeks is what we've seen excluding this current beta because the dev portal crud.


    I haven't had the chance to really play with beta 4 enough but so far, it's decent.

    Based on what BGR posted yesterday, here's what i'm thinking.

    Beta 5: Monday, August 12th
    Beta 6: Monday, August 26th
    GM: First week of September, probably Tuesday or Wednesday
    Public release: Second week of September, probably Tuesday or Wednesday

    seems like every 2 weeks wasn't really the schedule given that beta 4 was released 3 weeks after beta 2 and there's nothing to point to the dev portal being responsible for that somehow.
