iOS 8 logo (mockup 001)

If history is anything to go by, Apple could seed the next beta of iOS 8 to its registered developers later this month. As in, precisely two weeks after iOS 8 Beta 3 dropped.

As you know, the third beta arrived on July 7, bringing Wi-Fi Calling for T-Mobile iPhones and a host of under-the-hood tweaks and enhancements.

If BGR’s sources are right, iOS 8 Beta 4 should be expected on Monday, July 21. Keep in mind that BGR does not have the most reliable of sources and that the publication has been wrong before in predicting dates for iOS betas…

BGR editor Jonathan Geller learned from his sources that Apple is “currently planning” on making iOS 8 beta 4 available to developers and testing partners on Monday, July 21.

Geller’s prediction hopefully comes with BGR’s Seal of Approval.

He added:

We have also been able to get a glimpse at the iOS 8 beta release calendar and we will continue to share iOS 8 beta release dates with you as we get closer to them.

If true, there will be a two-week gap between Beta 3 and Beta 4. By comparison, there was a three-week gap from Beta 2 to Beta 3.

As always, we’ll keep you posted and ping you the instant iOS 8 Beta 4 drops.

      It was three between two and three this year so we got the three weeker out of the way already. 🙂

        oh really, missed that

        yeah, it was the last beta.

  • Jason Baroni

    Excited to test Continuity working on iOS.

  • My contract is with a company called EE, which is the parent company of T-Mobile and Orange. Does anyone know if that’ll mean I get WiFi calling straight away?

    I think this article is unnecessary. You basically are discrediting the source and just posting an article to post an article. There’s really nothing newsworthy here since you are so clearly indicating they’ve been wrong several times. IMHO.

  • wow, slow news day eh?

  • Decio Arruda

    There just are some posts on iDB which “No Shit Mannnnnn” is the only comment that makes sense.

    when it come, it will come. dont need to create a page about it.

    Apple betas releases TYPICALLY run every two weeks or a couple days over that. I’ve been a developer for years and that has been my experience.

    In other news, OS X Yosemite beta 4 will come soon. Sheesh.
