For those who have already updated to Beta 4, you must have discovered at least one change in the UI. There are a lot of minor changes in Beta 4 to make iOS and iPadOS more refined and perfect. The Features & Changes are listed below:

1. Recovery of Storage: Users are reporting that they gained back a significant amount of storage back after updating to iOS 13. Congratulations to you if you have got back some storage.

2. Stutters: In Beta 3, there was a stutter while going to the app switcher. In Beta 4, it’s fixed and not just in the app switcher, stutters in the entire UI has been removed.

3. Performance: iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 Beta 4 Users are going to extremely happy using it because Beta 4 has increased stability and increased the speed of the overall UI.

4. Passcode Bypass fixed: In Beta 3 when you wanted to see safari saved passwords in the settings App, you could do it without a passcode authentication/Biometrics. This major security flaw has been fixed in Beta 4.

5. 3D Touch:

It’s back: 3D Touch is completely back in Beta 4, and there is no more delay in response when you 3D Touch on an app icon. The 3D Touch and Haptic Touch confusion is now over. The 3D Touch Platter/Menu has received a huge redesign. There are a lot of changes to the Menu which are:

a) You now have an option in the platter called “Rearrange Apps”. You can also rearrange apps now by 3D Touching on an app icon and moving the app while not releasing your finger will trigger Wiggle mode.

b) The new menu is now streamlined, smaller, sharper and denser and the background of the menu is no longer as translucent as Beta 3. Hmm… I don’t think many users will like that translucency is less in Beta 4.

c) Order of the options have also been changed for many apps. You will notice when 3D-Touching on the App Store, it will always show you the updates option regardless of whether you have updates or not. Also, the 4th row of apps now opens the 3D Touch platter upwards instead of downwards in Beta 4. Icons for the options have now moved from the left to the right.

8. Music Platter: In the notification center, the volume bar gradually fills while you drag the volume bar in the Music Platter. Earlier in Beta 3, the whole volume bar was always filled in.
