Ever since the announcement of the iOS 6, the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system in June, the company has released four betas so far, allowing developers to test and discover the latest changes the new OS will bring about.
On Monday, the Cupertino tech giant released the fourth beta of the OS, iOS 6 beta 4 build 10A5376e, to developers just three weeks after the third beta. The new iOS 6 beta, released as an over-the-air (OTA) update, is also available in the iOS Dev Center.
iOS 6 is considered a major update with significant changes from Apple. One of the key features and improvements included in the new OS is Apple’s own advanced mapping system, offering the benefit of 3D mapping, fly-over city tours and efficient turn-by-turn navigation.
While millions of Apple fans around the world are looking forward to try their hands on the new iPhone, aka the “iPhone 5″ that is expected to land in mid-September, running on iOS 6, users of jailbroken iOS devices are also holding their breath to see what jailbreakers do in terms of producing new jailbreak tools.

Well-known iOS hacker MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team confirmed via Twitter on Monday that the newly released iOS 6 beta 4 can be jailbreakable on A4 capable (iPhone 4, iPod touch 4th gen, iPhone 3GS) devices using the latest version of the popular jailbreak tool Redsn0w (0.9.13 dev 3).
“JB devs can continue using redsn0w 0.9.13dev3 with todays iOS 6 beta4 (keep pointing redsn0w at iOS 6 beta3 IPSW),” MuscleNerd tweeted.
