Apple seeds fourth beta of iOS 17.4 to Developers

Apple is very close to releasing the public build of iOS 17.4, the next iOS 17 build for iPhone. Today, the leading tech giant released iOS 17.4 Beta 4 to developers. The update will be available to public testers soon. The fourth beta is the later build of iOS 17.4 which means we might not see many changes as Apple will focus on making it stable. Let’s find out more about iOS 17.4 Beta 4

Update: The fourth beta is also available to Public Beta testers now.

Along with the iOS 17.4 Beta 4, today Apple also released iPadOS 17.4 Beta 4, watchOS 10.4 Beta 4, tvOS 17.4 Beta 4, macOS Sonoma 14.4 Beta 4, macOS Ventura 13.6.5 RC3, and visionOS 1.1 Beta 3. The fourth betas of iOS 17.4 and iPadOS 17.4 come with build number 21E5209b. We might see one more beta, but if Apple is planning to launch the public build in the first week of March, Apple could directly release the release candidate next week.

In the last three beta builds of iOS 17.4, Apple introduced a bunch of changes including some compatibility like support for third-party app stores and more. You can check out the last beta page for more information.

iOS 17.4 Beta 4 Update

iOS 17.4 beta 4 was just released. So we are looking for changes and additions. We’ll add the findings to the list below.

  • Monthly Replay in Apple Music
  • The Battery Health page in Settings now shows status (like Normal or low). And opening it will show other information like battery capacity

As usual, the fourth beta of iOS 17.4 is first available to developers and soon it will be released to public beta testers. If you already opted for beta on the software page, you will receive the new beta OTA. You can check for the update in Settings > General > Software Update. Here you can also opt for beta if you haven’t already.

If you already installed the last beta on your phone, then it will weigh less but if you are switching from a public build then it will weigh over 5GB. Before installing the update make sure to take backup of important data.
