After releasing beta 3 last week, Apple has now seeded beta 4 of iOS 11.4, tvOS 11.4, watchOS 4.3.1 and macOS 10.13.5 to those members of Apple Developer Program.
All those new pre-release seeds released today are available to download with immediate effect to registered developers for testing purposes. Here are the details on what’s new in the release.
iOS 11.4 beta 4: It’s time to sink developers their teeth into yet another release of iOS 11.4 beta, Apple’s major mobile platform. The initial pre-release seeds have already shown us that Apple plans on re-introducing Messages on iCloud as well as AirPlay 2 functionality. This immediate release of iOS 11.4 is also the first version of iOS which includes Apple’s new ClassKit framework, as introduced during the company’s recent Field Trip event in Chicago, Illinois. Beta 4 of iOS 11.4 firmware is a continuation of the work that’s come before it but we’ll be sure to let you know of any new findings if any should arise.
tvOS 11.4 beta 4: The version of tvOS is one of Apple’s least interacted-with firmware due to the sheer volume of users that interact with iOS, macOS, and watchOS on a daily basis, but that doesn’t make it any less important, especially for those with Apple TV 4 or Apple TV 4K, tvOS 11.4 beta 4 is also a continuation of the platform and simply exists to streamline everything that’s already been implemented, such as AirPlay 2 speakers support and the fact that ATV now shows up once again in the Home app on Apple’s iOS-powered devices.
watchOS 4.3.1 beta 4: With the release of watchOS 4.3.1 now, is another version continuation of the platform and a chance for Apple to try and eradicate any bugs or issues which went live and have since been discovered in watchOS 4.3. There are no new feature additions involved in this version, anyway. As we mentioned, is Apple’s chance to stabilize and improve. This fourth beta is a perfect example of that.
macOS 10.13.5 beta 4: Any release of macOS is generally be focused on working with new versions of iOS, and macOS 10.13.5 beta is no different. This version of macOS reintroduces Messages on iCloud, which will work with devices running iOS 11.4. The rest of the release appears to be intended heavily on bug fixes and overall improvements to try and streamline the platform.
Those of you with registered developer account or an individual with the necessary privileges, you can grab the latest beta of iOS 11.4, tvOS 11.4, macOS 10.13.5, and probably the watchOS 4.3.1 through the usual update mechanisms right now – either as OTA from the device itself, or as IPSW (and other formats) directly from developer.apple.com.
Update x1: Public beta 4 of iOS 11.4, tvOS 11.4 and macOS 10.13.5 are now available for testers of Apple Beta Software Program.
