How to install iOS 8 beta 4 right now without a developer account

How To Install iOS 8 Beta 4

Apple pushed out its fourth beta version of iOS 8 on Monday, and the update came right on time. iOS 8 beta 4 is a huge improvement over earlier betas in a number of ways, offering several new features such as a redesigned Control Center, as well as plenty of bug fixes that make it easier for iOS developers to test their apps ahead of iOS 8's public release this fall. Of course, the fixes are also greatly appreciated by non-developers who pay $99 for the opportunity to get their hands on Apple's unreleased iOS software before any of their friends.

As it turns out, iPhone and iPad owners don't even need to pay for a developer account to install iOS 8 beta 4.

Xiaomi VP and former Google exec (unconvincingly) denies the company copies Apple

barra

You’d think it would be pretty hard to deny that Chinese Android phone and tablet manufacturer Xiaomi copies Apple – yet that’s exactly what former Google exec and now Xiaomi’s global vice president Hugo Barra tried to do in an interview with The Verge.

Allegations of it copying Apple are “sweeping sensationalist statements because they have nothing better to talk about,” he says.

Well, let’s see …

Let’s start with the company’s phones. Admittedly they don’t look much like iPhones, but they are called … the Mi Phone. Still, I’m sure that’s coincidence.

Then there’s the company’s tablet. No prizes for guessing the name of that. And here’s what the Mi Pad looks like – remind you of anything?

Barra says that’s coincidence, too.

“If you have two similarly skilled designers, it makes sense that they would reach the same conclusion,” he argues. “It doesn’t matter if somebody else has reached the same conclusion.”

Let’s look at the marketing materials. Hmm, anyone ever seen spec boxes like these anywhere before?

What about a product launch. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is, but there’s something about a company CEO on a stage wearing blue jeans and a black turtleneck that looks somehow familiar …

Still, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun toned it down today, swapping the turtleneck for a t-shirt as he introduced the company’s new wearable, the Mi Band. Sacha Pallenberg tweeted this photo of Lei Jun’s original approach to the launch, making a smaller announcement first and then introducing it with the words …

But hey, two similarly skilled presenters are going to reach the same conclusion about how best to spring a surprise, right?

Samsung Pre-Trolls The iPhone 6 With New Ad

Screen Shot 2014-07-22 at 9.16.26 AM Samsung can’t resist throwing shade at Apple – even with devices that don’t actually exist yet. The Korean smartphone maker has a new video on its official YouTube account that digs into the Mac maker about rumors that it’ll ship an iPhone 6 with a bigger display this fall. Samsung’s conceit: We’ve had that all along! And so you have Samsung, and therein… Read More

Nvidia Shield Tablet: An Android Tablet With a Game Console Inside

Last year, chip-maker Nvidia entered the hardware dojo with Shield, a weird but interesting Android gaming machine . Its successor has arrived, taking a form that's a little more familiar.
