Apple iPhone OS 4 Beta 4 Goes Live and Brings Plenty of New Options

The Betas for Apple‘s iPhone OS 4 have been coming out at a steady pace, but so far none of them have been all that ground breaking, when it comes to feature lists. Sure, Beta 3 released Folders onto unsuspecting people and developers, but still, it wasn’t earth shaking. This time around, though, along with a few small pieces of a larger puzzle, we’ve got something big in the release.

First up, new wallpapers! Yeah, yeah, we know, you were expecting more, right? What? New wallpapers to show off to all your friends isn’t exciting? What about the ability to send a mass message, to everyone you know? You could tell them you’ve got new wallpapers on your iPhone HD. How awesome is that?

Okay, okay, the good stuff: remember tethering? You know, that feature that Apple brought with iPhone OS 3? The same feature that AT&T told everyone would be coming, but never delivered on? Well, it looks like Apple wants to put their foot down on the whole situation, as they’ve included a new setting in the Settings menu: Tethering. Now, this doesn’t mean that the feature is actually coming, but it’s surely one step in the right direction. We’ll have to wait and see what AT&T has to say, but hopefully they’ve got their network ready for the included feature.
