Get your download on, iOS 6 beta 4 is out for developers only. Those of you who have access to the Developers Portal at Apple can download it now. So, is there anything new? Post if you see anything exciting.

Hopefully they fixed the iMessage and Facetime problem from Beta 3. I had to downgrade back to 5.1.1 because iMessage, group messaging and MMS wasn't working

No issues with any of the Beta's yet, installing Beta 4 now, hopefully I'm not tempting fate!

Took a while on my iPhone 4S but it's downloaded and installed now OTA. Moving onto my iPad 3 now and it's quoting 7 hours at the moment.

As confirmed else where the YouTube app is indeed gone. Not a concern for me as I rarely used it.

The only time I use the YouTube app is when I click on a link and it autoplays in the app. Guess we'll see it within Safari going forward. Assume that if you download their new app, a link within Safari will open up the new app?

So you can still download the YouTube app? I use it quite a bit

Yeah I'll have to try again when I get home from work. It's still not finding the update for me... some sort of connection error.

I don't know why but after updating to beta 4 I had around 7 voicemails mysteriously pop up. The dates are ranging from the last couple of weeks. Some from people that I wondered why they never called me back and others from people who probably wondered why I never called them back. This is not cool!

I know what that is ^^^ I had the same problem with beta 3. Visual voicemail did not work until I reset network settings. I noticed in beta 3 I was not getting voicemails sometimes, when I reset the network settings I had 17 new voicemails. When you updated to beta 4 they corrected this problem.

It forced the FaceTime over Cellular switch off. Now I got the popup that says "FaceTime requires an active Wi-Fi connection or an eligible cellular data plan."

So much for Apple controlling the experience.
