One of the first thing that you will notice after upgrading to the latest beta is the lack of the Bug Reporter app. Bug Reporter app was shipped in the iOS 8 to let developers easily file bug reports. Seems like the intense flood of bugs reported made folks at Apple withdraw the app! Other changes include a new Settings menu and a welcoming new controls center look. Here is a list of iOS 8 beta 4 features:

  • No Bug Reporter
  • New Settings menu that has added a new Display and Brightness Settings menu
