    Today is the day, yet another beta release. iOS 8 beta 4 is out and available through the developer portal or OTA. It clocks in at just 300MB, but requires 3GB of space to install. Why, I have no idea. I found the last beta to be incredibly buggy. With each successive release, I hope this gets remotely stable. Downloading OTA now. Fingers crossed.

    As for what's new, list them as you find them!

    Looks like the Control Center got a redesign. Looking so good!

    Looks like the rumored Tips app is also live, offering quick tutorials on how to use your iPhone.

    Unfortunately, it's not configurable. I would love to get my hands on those four app shortcuts.

    Can you disable favorites/recents in the App Switcher screen?

    What's different? Mine looks just like that, and I'm not on beta. I do have "Reduce Transparency" toggled off. Could the update have turned everyone's Reduce Transparency off?

    You don't see it? It's night and day.

    Look a little closer and you'll see the differences. The black lines and borders are gone. The icons, toggles and areas surrounding AirDrop and the brightness are not the same shade anymore.

    I like the new look of the control center. I'm just hoping Apple doesn't spend all their time on the UI and fail to address other issues of the phone along with improvements to existing features.

    IDK, I kind of like the defining lines.
