New Features of iOS 8 Beta 4


Including improved integration with OS X, HealthKit, Family Sharing, QuickType Keyboard, interactive notifications and more, iOS 8 brought a range of new features. Then what are brought by iOS 8 Beta 4?

No 1: Redesign of Control Center

The control center removed the black borders around the icons on the top and bottom, in addition, it will turn the icons white when activated.

No 2: New Options on Display

Unbundled from wallpaper, there is a new Display & Brightness section where you can adjust screen brightness, text size and active bold text.

No 3: Tips App

This is the first surface of Tips App, giving users tips on how to use iOS 8 on a weekly basis. There are directions on using quick notification responses, sending voice messages, using notifications for Mail response, activating Siri hands-free, etc.
Note that the Tips App will be a default iOS App, end users can’t uninstall it after you installed iOS 8 Beta 4.

So far, the iOS 8 is only available to registered developers. When will it be available to public? Rumors said that at this fall after several iterations, it will be available to public. Based on Apple’s convention, new iOS is likely to be released alongside new iPhone. So the big chance is that the time when iPhone 6 launches is the time iOS 8 becomes public.

Important tip: Exiting an iPhone that stuck on recovery mode during update, ReiBoot is the best tool, a freeware provided by Tenorshare.
