Download iOS 9.3 Beta 4 – Devs Only
iOS 9.3 beta 4 update has been released and is now available for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
iOS 9.3 Beta 4 Arrives As The Final Release Inches Near
Apple is moving towards the final release of its upcoming mobile firmware, iOS 9.3, at a slow and steady pace. With iOS 9.3 sitting on the fourth pre-release build, it's safe to say that the final release is either a couple of weeks away or maybe just a month at max. But till that happens we have the fourth beta of Cupertino's mobile firmware to digest.
Available as a complete firmware file directly from Cupertino's Developer Program website for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, or as an over the update for those who have a previous pre-release build already installed onto their gadgets, iOS 9.3 beta 4 is a pure bug fix and performance enhancement release if the changelog that comes attached with the download is anything to go by.
If you're installing iOS 9.3 beta 4 over the air (OTA) then simply launch the Settings app, go to General > Software Update to get things into motion. Also bear in mind that you'll be required to be connected to a WiFi network in order to download and install the update. Lastly, your device's battery should be above the 50% mark in order for the installation process to go ahead. We recommend that you leave your device on charge when the installation process is happening, just to be on the safe side of the fence.
If you wish to install iOS 9.3 beta 4 fresh onto your device, then you can do so by grabbing the pre-release bits directly from the Apple Developer Program website. And since today's release is meant for developers only, therefore you must be a paying dev with Apple ($99 a year) in order to download anything at all ahead of time. We're of course talking about beta software here.
It's highly advised that you go ahead installing iOS 9.3 beta 4 on a device that is not your daily driver, as beta software can be shoddy at times during day to day usage. If you're feeling brave however, then, well, who are we to stop you, right?
If you're a developer then we highly recommend that you update your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch right away to iOS 9.3 beta 4 since the pre-release build exists to refine things for those who create apps and games for end users. And you don't want to be that guy who forgot to test their app on the latest beta build, right?
We thought so too.
