iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 4 Preview & Free Download

Posted on 19 May 2010

Apple has released iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 4 for testing. Since it is in beta testing stage, It is not recommended for general public to upgrade their iPhone until all its bugs are sorted out by apple developers. We at ixibo got a chance to review the new operating system at one of our testing iPhones. here is what we have learned about it so far.

At first glance, change is there. Home Screen got a makeover. It got cleaned up. Frequently used applications like clock, calculator, compass, vice memo etc are got their own “Utilities” Folder.

The iPhone OS 4.0 beta comes with a nice selection of non-distracting default wallpapers.

You can also now toggle off the ability to send group messages.

The greatest news is the ability to tether your internet connection to your computer or laptop. Internet tethering allows you to share your iPhone’s internet connection with your computer via Bluetooth or USB.

Among other minor tweaks,

  • Ability to change orientation of your photos in photo app is added.
  • The odd silent pause after picking up the call is gone
  • Maps app is faster and more accurate.
  • Switching and opening up of application is noticeably improved.

Things that are still missing in iPhone OS 4.0 beta 4

  • You still have to find Messages app
  • Five icon Docking is not implemented
  • Jail breaker’s won’t get an upgrade
  • Tethering option only works with AT&T
