Apple released iOS 5 Beta 4 this past Friday, and there have already been numerous findings uncovered in Apple's lasest build. With an iOS 5 announcement set to happen in September, we're getting closer and closer to a final GM release of iOS 5 before it hits the public.

In case you missed the news, Apple seeded iOS 5 beta 4 to developers yesterday. The new software brings loads of bug fixes and minor updates, and it also introduced a major new feature. Today's beta was the first firmware update that Apple's pushed to devs over-the-air.
Although things got off to a rocky start, a majority of the folks guinea-pigging the OTA updates seemed to be happy with the end result. However, if you have a jailbroken iDevice and tried updating to the new iOS 5 software, it was probably a different story...
