iOS 7 HeadApple on Monday seeded iOS 7 beta 4 to registered developers for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The update comes three weeks following the release of iOS 7 beta 3, and over one month after the first beta was announced at WWDC 2013. Below, we have a running log of all notable changes in the fourth beta.
