BGR: iOS 7.1 beta 4 to developers tomorrow, now in the hands of carrier partners

Update: Oops… more like today.

Word is in from BGR that the next seed of the iOS 7.1 beta track will be released to developers as soon as tomorrow. It’s apparently already in the hands of Apple’s testing partners (read: carriers). The site says there will be the following changes:

We are told there are various fixes in this latest version, including fixing keyboard issues, problems with the contacts app, more changes to the phone UI, and other changes.

The previous betas brought interface changes to calendar, the phone app, and the system shut down screen. 7.1 will also likely unlock the previously announced iOS in the Car feature.

Oddly, BGR’s report lists the iOS 7.1 beta 4 build number as 11D5127c, but that’s actually the beta 3 build number:

BGR’s track record in reporting beta releases is mixed (but usually more accurate than not), and of course Apple’s release plans can easily change, so don’t take this with 100% certainty. The previous 7.1 beta was released nearly two weeks ago.

Apple released the third beta of its iOS 7.1 software (build 11D5127c) to registered developers today. Apple released the first iOS 7.1 beta for developers in November bringing with it a handful of UI tweaks, performance improvements, and accessibility features. That release was followed by a second iOS 7.1 beta in mid-December which brought button shapes as an accessibility feature as well as a calendar design mirroring iOS 6 and prior.

We’ll update you of changes as we come across them. Leave us a note in the comments or at tips@9to5mac.com if you find something interesting as well.
