Apple’s iOS 17 update is now in its fourth beta test, giving developers the build number 21A5291h. The new iOS beta is a continuation of Apple’s test for the said update as it tries to refine every detail of iOS 17 before releasing it to all compatible devices in September.

iOS 17 is also now available to public testers, though it is important to note that the release they will get is the same Beta 3 developers previously tested. Also, despite being deemed more stable compared to developer betas, the public beta of iOS 17 is still far from perfect. As shared by the first public beta testers, some iOS issues are present in the public beta, including the notorious keyboard bug.

Nonetheless, there’s hope that Apple has finally addressed most of these issues in iOS 17 Developer Beta 4, especially as we approach September. In the release notes of Apple, there are still some known issues in Beta 4, though it also includes some workarounds for some of them.

At first glance, the new release looks nothing greatly different from Beta 3, and it still includes a lot of huge features of iOS 17. Yet, we will update this article as we spot new ones or any additional improvements and changes included in Beta 4.

To those interested in trying the iOS 17 beta, we have a separate article for all the features you can expect from it. You can also check the compatibility requirements of the update alongside the process of installing either the public or developer betas updates.

Lastly, aside from the new iOS Beta 4, you can now try the fourth developer betas of iPadOS 17, tvOS 17, watchOS 10, and macOS Sonoma.
