iOS 11.4 beta 4 is now available for testers worldwide

Apple iOS is one of the most popular mobile operating systems, with more than 30 percent market share. Apple keeps improving its operating system in an attempt to take on Android on the market. iOS 10 is still Apple’s biggest iOS release so far, with a ton of features and changes. One of the best things when it comes to iOS 10 is that Apple opened some aspects of its OS to third-party developers.

The Cupertino company has just released the fourth beta of iOS 11.4 following months of beta testing. The software update came one week after the release of iOS 11.4 beta 3. Like any other software update, iOS 11.4 mostly focuses on bug fixes and under-the-hood improvements.

iOS 11.4 beta 4 comes with the fix for a bug that temporarily disables 3D after unlocking the device. Besides, the fourth beta of iOS 11.4 also fixes some apps crashes and improves battery life on supported devices.

According to Apple, the beta update will be rolling out to developers and user who have enrolled in Apple’s beta testing program. However, we have heard a lot of issues iPhone owners are facing with Apple’s iOS 11.4 beta 4. One such issue lies in unresponsive touchscreens. Reports say that their phone’s touchscreen fails to work, forcing them to reboot the device multiple times.

It remains unclear if Apple has acknowledged the issue, so the best solution to deal with the issue is to get back to a more stable iOS version.  In reality, unresponsive touchscreen issue is not something new here, it was previously discovered in the beta 2.

Other iOS 11.4 issues include laggy keyboards, 3D Touch not working and persistent message attachments. It seems that Apple has a lot of work to do ahead of the public release. Apple has not specified when the company releases the final build. However, tech experts say that iOS 11.4 software update will hit users worldwide in June, shortly after Apple’s WWDC event.

At this year’s WWDC event, Apple is expected to give us a preview of iOS 12, but Apple has not made any official announcements.
