One week after releasing the third beta version of iOS 13.4 and iPadOS 13.4 to developers, Apple has released the fourth beta build of its mobile operating systems. If you’re a registered developer, you can install these builds on compatible iPhones and iPads.
Update: The fourth public beta versions of iOS 13.4 and iPadOS 13.4 are now available for compatible iPhones and iPads. Those who have registered to beta-test new versions of iOS and iPadOS can now download and install iOS 13.4 Beta 4 and iPadOS 13.4 Beta 4 on their devices via an OTA if those devices have a Public Beta configuration profile installed.
The original story follows…
Apple has dropped a new version of iOS and iPadOS today. iOS 13.4 Beta 4 and iPadOS 13.4 Beta 4 builds can now be downloaded and installed on compatible devices through the Apple Developer Center or via the OTA (over the air) method if a proper configuration profile is installed on them.
While we don’t know what these new builds of iOS and iPadOS bring to the table, we can safely assume that the company has squashed some bugs, improved the performance and stability of devices, and added minor new features or design changes.
With iOS 13.4, Apple released the iCloud Folder Sharing feature. It also brought the CarKey API for sharing virtual keys of compatible cars via NFC-equipped iPhones and Apple Watches with friends and family members. There were a few changes in the bottom bar of the Mail app. There were new Memoji stickers and video streaming/downloading quality options in the Apple TV app.
The iPadOS 13.4 brought keyboard shortcuts in the Photos app. It also introduced customizable keyboard shortcuts for hardware keyboard accessories. The iOS 13.4 beta 3 update also hinted towards Apple’s thought of bringing internet-based recovery for iOS and iPadOS devices. A similar feature is has been present for Macs for a few years now.
