iOS 12 Beta 4 Officially Released to the Public

iOS Developer Beta 5 was released yesterday, however, the public Beta 4, which came out today, issues fixes to clear bugs reported in the Beta 3 version.

We expect the Mother Of All Updates – “the official iOS 12” to hit the end user market during the night of Apple’s September event. This would follow exactly the Apple pattern we’ve seen for year.
