Apple seeds fourth betas for iOS 9 and watchOS 2.0


New iOS 9 beta goodies are here

Apple has released a new set of betas for the mobile operating systems it announced at WWDC 2015 in June. iOS 9 beta 4 and watchOS 2.0 beta 4 are now available to registered developers, nearly two weeks after Apple seeded the previous betas.

Developers can download both the watchOS 2.0 and iOS 9 betas from the Apple Developer Center, or via an over-the-air update if your device was already running iOS 9 beta 3. There’s also a new Xcode 7 beta 4 available.

The release notes for iOS 9 and watchOS 2.0 don’t mention any major new features, however, Apple Music was just added in the last beta, plus an early look at the News app, bigger iPad folders, suggested apps in universal search, a selfies album, and more. We’ll let you know what new goodies we find once the software has been installed on our devices.
