Apple today released iOS 16.4 Beta 4 to developers. The new beta update comes just a week after the company seeded beta three last week. Along with the latest iOS 16.4 beta, Apple has also released macOS 13.3, watchOS 9.4, and iPadOS 16.4 beta 4.
The latest beta build can be downloaded by going to Settings → General → Software Update. The update should pop up in the software update menu immediately if you have the developer beta profile installed. However, if you are on the public beta channel, the update should be available within a maximum of 24 hours.
iOS 16.4 brings a number of new features to the iPhone. Over 21 new emojis, support for web app push notifications, improved 5G support, revamped settings for developer profiles, and more are a part of iOS 16.4.
