Apple Seeds Fourth Beta of iOS 11.4.1 to Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming iOS 11.4.1 update to developers and public beta testers, one week after seeding the third beta and a month after releasing iOS 11.4, an update that introduced AirPlay 2 and Messages in iCloud.

Registered developers can download the new iOS 11.4.1 beta from Apple's Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center. Public beta testers can also install the update over-the-air with the public beta profile.


No new features were discovered in the first three iOS 11.4.1 betas, suggesting it focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements to address issues discovered since the release of iOS 11.4.

We'll update this post should we discover any new features in the fourth iOS 11.4.1 beta, but we're not expecting major changes now that Apple has shifted its focus to iOS 12, which is also available to developers for beta testing purposes.

Rhetorical question: Is fourth beta 11.4.1 better than iOS beta 12?


Can't compare. Consider 11.4.1 as one of last updates to a stable code base that is 11.4. 12 beta is in the stage where it is one of first updates to a release that has lots of new code in it. If you want stability, 11.4 is where it's at. If you like to live on the edge, then 12 is it.

Why does it say 8 comments but I only see 1 ?

Moderator Note:

Several off topic comments regarding the iOS 12 beta were removed. If anybody would like to discuss the iOS 12 beta, please use one of the existing iOS 12 threads. Thank you.

One BUG I would like to see fixed is when using the IOS Mail application on either iPhone or iPad. When you select an e-mail to delete by swiping left, and then a new e-mail arrives, guess which gets deleted. NOT the one you started to select and swipe but the new e-mail. That needs to be fixed.

I hope the stuttering audio gets fixed. It seems to be something that has popped up for a lot of people in the last six months.

Depends on the build number. That's usually a good indicator. Not a guarantee, but just an indicator.

I show 11.4.1 15G5074a
