Apple Seeds iOS 5 Beta 4 to Developers, Brings Over-the-Air Updates

Apple just pushed out the latest beta of their upcoming iOS 5 software to developers ahead of schedule. Apple released the first beta on June 6th, the second on Jun 24, and the third on July 11th.

This new smaller timeframe suggests that this is more of an incremental upgrade, but we’ve already noticed a major difference from previous beta versions. Beta 4 is available over-the-air…

That’s right, the new update is available to developers via a wireless OTA update. If you are on a previous version of iOS 5 and want to try it out, simply open the General tab in your Settings app and select Software Updates.

A quick note to iOS 5 jailbreakers, we don’t have confirmation yet from the community that the new beta is jailbreakable, so keep that in mind before you update.

Don’t freak out if the OTA option doesn’t work for you, you can still download the firmware from Apple’s Dev Center. Be sure to let us know if you find any cool features in the new update, you can do so by submitting them via our contact page.
