Apple has released iOS 7.1 beta 4 to developers a few minutes ago. Let's see what's new.

That sounds about right. That would put us at a mid-February release. Given the lack of new features in beta 4, perhaps the next two move quickly, pushing the schedule to early February. I hope we can get back the stability we've grown accustomed to with iOS. The Safari crashes are maddening.

Well, beta 3 is much more stable, even jailbroken, than 7.0.4.

in beta 3 they changed the color of the shift key for no apparent reason, and it remains in beta 4. seriously confusing. I hope they don't intend to leave it that way.

Anyone else notice that they toned down the neon green on the call bar? I noticed it last week and almost posted it in the balms my hide thread.

Here's the difference:

It's looking like beta 4 will not be jailbroken.
Guess I need to look into installing 7.1 beta 3. I'm still on 7.0.4 and I want the 7.1 Safari bug crash fix (and the toned-down call bar and Calendars improvements), but I don't want to run stock. Too bad DockShift and BlurredMusic App aren't working on the beta.

But a lot of other stuff is. Come on, girl, jailbreak a beta. Come on over to the really dark side. :D

why bother when it'll just expire? can a jailbreak tweak fix that?
