    What do you guys think? I don't really need new features but they're welcomed. What I really want are stability and bug fixes. Bugs like no animation on folder open at dock, black home screen when returning to home screen from multitasking, etc. *I clean install on all betas on my 4S. :)

    Probably some small (or maybe slightly larger) fixes and changes, both on the surface and under the hood, so to say.

    I predict that iOS 7 beta 4 will bring "what will iOS 7 beta 5 bring?" threads to the forum.

    Sorry about that @saving107. Just excited haha. It's supposed to be seeded on the 22nd.

    If the past is any indication, each beta will bring fewer and fewer changes.

    Yup! :) If we look at past beta releases (2 and 3) they follow a two-week release pattern. Hopefully, that means that b4 will be seeded on the 22nd.

    I hope beta 4 fixes the bug where you can't recieve. I had to revert back to beta 2 which is horrible on my iPhone 4. Beta 3 was amazing, fast, smooth. Beta 4 will be even smoother and faster, I can't wait!

    Two data points might merely be a start of a pattern at best though. And even with some sort of a pattern it still doesn't mean the next release would have to follow it for some reason.

    Plus there's another equally fitting and possibly even better "pattern" that relates to the expiration dates of the betas: beta 1 is set to expire on July 24th and beta 2 was released exactly one month before on June 24th (a Monday); beta 2 is set to expire on August 8th, and beta 3 was released exactly one month before on July 8th (also a Monday); and now beta 3 is set to expire on August 29th and one month before that July 29th just happens to be a Monday too (although three weeks after beta 2 release instead of the previous two).

    I hope beta 4 comes today instead of next week (or especially 2 more weeks). Beta 3 is so terrible that I had to revert back to beta 2 just to make my phone usable.

    "Hopefully" is most certainly not the same as "supposed to be"... :cool::D

    Probably bug and stability fixes. Hopefully fix the Reminders sync bug which was noted as a known bug in the release notes for beta 3.

    I think at some point we will see more changes to the main font choice and to the lockscreen.

    Who knows when though.

    All I want to see fixed is the GPS bug. My bike rides have me riding through fields and lakes!

    No need for anymore new features. Just more stability would do just nice.
