iOS 5 beta 4 gallery

While the big news for iOS 5 beta 4 is no doubt the over-the-air (OTA) update switch finally being pulled, there are a few other little tweaks that seem to have slipped in, and like always you folks are doing a bang up job of letting us know.

  • OTA updates are now live. You'll get a popup telling you an update is available and Settings will get an alert badge to prompt you to open it.
  • Documents in the Cloud are now live

We'll keep collecting the new and notable stuff right here, so if you find anything else, let us know.

Screenshots after the break.

OTA updates - great!!!

Steve says:

You are encouraging developers to break their confidentiality agreement with Apple?

Chris says:

How is he? He just said OTA updates are great.

Marc says:

Keep searching, eventually you'll understand what he meant.

Can anyone confirm if deleting songs from within the Music app is a new feature for iOS5? I found that I could go within an album and swipe to delete single songs. Useful when you want more space and are not near your computer. Can't delete full albums or artists unfortunately.

Otcdoctork4 says:

Does deleting them remOve them from your library the next time you sync, or just your device?

Guest says:

Just your device. It will not alter your computer's iTunes library.

Skier1960 says:

Thanks for the info. I was able to delete a whole album or a song from the album?????

Guest says:

You can delete individual songs.

Mark Thomas says:

Dude, fucking clear down your "social" notifications - it's doing my OCD no good at all. :)

Dylan McMullen says:

And why are there two Facebook apps

Benno4678 says:

ones a link to the website

Dr. Brad says:

Safari on iPad ios beta 3 crashed constantly. Beta 4 is barely better. I wonder if a fresh install would have fixed that?

Applecpugeek says:

Can I do this on 3G? And if I have to, can I activate on 3G? Also, all your data will still be on my device. Correct?

Zynga Group says:

u cant even install iOS5 on 3G, buy new one

Casey Callaghan says:

I think he is talking about using a 3G network to update/activate iOS 5 in comparison to using Wi-Fi, not the iPhone 3G which stopped getting updates past 4.2.1

Ryan Moser says:

I have iOS 5 beta1 installed on my iPhone 4, do I need to get beta2 and then beta3 before I install beta4?

dalejr88nascar says:

i think you could just go to beta 3, and then use the ota update to get beta 4

Jonathan Seals says:

Just get the beta 4 ipsw from the Apple developer page and restore to it.

Neolord21 says:

I can't seem to delete any pictures from photo stream, eventho I have deleted them from my camera roll.

HankAZ says:

One more cool feature... on the Notification screen... current day calendar entries are shown in "normal" font... entries for "tomorrow" are now displayed in italics. It provides a great, subtle way of distinguishing the today/tomorrow entries at a glance. Well played, Mr Jobs.

Bry says:

I love this. Actually got very excited when I saw this in the notification center. It also shows a bell (alarm) icon to the left of something that has an alert that went off that you didn't open yet. Once opened the whole calendar event disappears off notification center. Love it

Peter says:

Much better Safari stability in this beta than in previous ones. I was starting to think my iPad was broken

Jhoove09 says:

938 social notifications. Wow. Lol. Rene, you have catching up to do.

deviantdj says:

I never got the notification on my iPhone wierd?

Liv says:

983 Social notifications? Not bad... I've had 1294 before i restored.
Hoping iOS 5 will make it easier to dismiss them

Tiny_razor says:

Is this beta buggy?
Is it fast?
Is it worth it?
Because I had iOS 5 beta 2 and I felt it was a little slow. Also my iTunes was ridiculously slow. So I wanna know if the iTunes is faster also?
