    So here is an interesting question/observation. When I use my mophie case and try the "hey Siri" it doesn't work but when I actually plug it into the wall outlet it works. How can it tell the difference lol.
    "Hey Siri" ONLY works whirl plugged into an outlet (or charging somehow). So it probably isn't your case per se but that you just needed to have it plugged in.

    Hope this helps!

    I don't have the done button on top. I tried through Messages though.

    Same issue here (which is weird because it worked fine one beta 3, but obviously it's a beta so anything can be broken).

    When I click Create New Contact I actually see the "Done" button slide up and out of view but pulling down only reveals a white border. At least we have a workaround. I'm sure it will be fixed come next beta though.

    Solved with a reboot.

    I reset network settings, and that took care of it.

    It seems that the second clean install fixed my wifi issues.

    I'm trying to drill down on this. When connected directly into an AC outlet via an Apple charger, the "Hey Siri" function seems to work fine on my 5s. But it doesn't work at all when that same device is in a dock that is charging. That's true on with a Belkin charge/sync dock (native Lightning connector), and also with an iHome alarm clock (also native Lightning connector). I can't figure out why it makes a difference. Anyone else?

    I'm actually having the same problem now (attempted to use via my car USB). I think it may just be a bug with this beta because I used the feature in beta 2 via a different charging feature.

    Sorry for the confusion on my end.

    'hey siri' works for me on my 5s when plugged into any charger. it works when plugged into my laptop via usb or when plugged into the car charger. i don't have a mophie case or dock to test it that way. it also works on my monoprice wall charger at home with the usb port for charging.

    So far I'm very happy with beta 4, I tried beta 1 and 2 and both times went back to 7.1.x

    Obviously we expect some issues with apps, reboots/spring's or battery life challenges, but beta 4 is rather rock solid for me, along with dp4 for my MacBook Air.

    The only thing I've really noticed with my iPad since WIFI performance seems rather slow within some applications, for example speedtest shows 80-90Mbps (cable docis 3), yet my podcast app (downcast) or other apps perform like dogs from time to time.

    How long did you run it? For me it gets better everyday. It was rough the first two days but now it seems pretty stable.

    I had it on for a day and a half and it was just a little to buggy for me

    I'm not even getting the tiny glitches I was getting, but I created a backup, reinstalled beta 4 and then restored the backup. My iPhone 5 is working like a champ, and I have no doubt that I will keep it installed throughout it duration nor do I see myself returning to iOS 7. iOS 8 is truly stable on my device, thankfully...

    Enjoying the new record button sound in Camera. Fits better into the stock sounds post iOS 7 (the more future-esque, flat UI-inspired sounds)

    Just a little something I noticed over the weekend while camping, nothing big.

    My 5S was constantly searching for a signal (very low coverage), and getting very hot with excessive battery drainage. I know this is somewhat typical, the phone was straining for connection. But this was more severe. As in, losing 45% in 5 minutes severe.. And more than that, when I turned airplane mode on, after a couple minutes it would turn itself off, and resume searching.

    I ended up turning my phone off for the rest of the trip, as it was burning a hole in my pocket! (Alright, maybe a little over exaggerated, but you get the jist of it.)

    Just wanted to report my findings, everything else is great!

    I had the same issue in a poor coverage area with my iPhone 5. As long as I stay in good coverage I am seeing better and better battery life and just started using the "hey Siri" command while driving to send a text. Works well so far. I have issues on my iPad mini retina with screen orientation but that is a small complaint.

    Has anyone experienced the bug where if you receive a phone call, you can hear the other party but they can't hear you?

    Never thought about that! I should use that more often when I'm driving and my phone is charging. Thanks!

    That's not a bad idea, now if I hear a song I don't know I can go "hey Siri, what song is this" and it will tell me.

    I was lazy and did a option click upgrade in iTunes. I'll try a new settings reset and see if that helps at all.

    I used to be able to do the "Hey, Siri" in the car to send a text, change music, etc. But now i can't tell whether it's trying to pick up my voice via speaker or iPhone hardware. It's plugged into via aux so I would think my car speakers but Siri can never hear me. Blah

    Sometimes you have to speak louder or speak very clearly.

    Do you have "Do Not Disturb" turned on by accident? You'll see a little moon icon on your status bar at the top if you do.
    Have the same problem.
