Third One UI 4 (Android 12) beta rolls out to more Galaxy S21 owners

One UI 4 Beta sounds like it's nearing the final version.

Update, Oct 25 (11:55 a.m. ET): More users receiving third beta

What you need to know

  • Samsung is rolling out One UI 4 Beta 3 in S. Korea.
  • The update comes with a number of bug fixes and a revamped Weather app.
  • It may not be long before the 3rd beta reaches U.S. Galaxy S21 devices.

Samsung Galaxy S21 owners in South Korea are being treated to the 3rd One UI 4 beta, according to a community post on Samsung's forum.

The update appears to host a number of bug fixes that should make the beta more stable as Samsung finalizes its software. Notable, the changelog states that the update is based on Google's final AOSP release for Android 12, meaning we could be nearing the final One UI 4 release.

There also appear to be improvements to the dynamic color theme that was introduced in the second One UI 4 beta. Additional changes include the following (via translation):

  • Fixed an issue where only some menus were partially untranslated right after the porta(ble) update
  • Google AOSP reflected (Google final release was reflected)
  • Overscroll effect changed from existing glow to stretch form (Android 12 changed)
  • Voice command in the camera Misrecognition improvement
  • Pet lighting effect applied
  • Color theme function stabilization
  • Keyboard shortcut issue fixed
  • Calling/texting on other devices fixed
  • Bixby not calling on the lock screen fixed
  • System UI forced closing issue
  • Many others Apply improvements

While not listed, one user (via SamMobile) notes that Samsung has made some changes to the Weather app, with new animations and no more ads.

One UI 4 Beta 3 comes just after Google released the stable version of Android 12 to older Pixel smartphones, bringing "Pixel-exclusive" features like Material You. Google says that Android 12 should roll out to some of the best Android phones from OEMs like Samsung later this year, and a Samsung community rep has indicated that the company is aiming to launch by December.

While the 3rd beta update appears to be rolling out in Korea, it should not take long to reach other regions where the beta is live, including the U.S. So far, only Galaxy S21 models are eligible for the beta, and none of our models appear to have the update just yet.

Update, Oct 25 (11:55 a.m. ET) ― More users receive third One UI 4 beta

After an initial rollout in South Korea, Galaxy S21 units in more regions have begun receiving the third One UI 4 beta over the weekend, as pointed out by our forums and XDA-Developers. The changelog appears to be the same, with some users also receiving the November security patch along with it.

Apple Has 'Very Serious' DMA Issues, EU to Enforce Rules 'Soon'

Apple is facing a "number" of "very serious" issues with its Digital Markets Act compliance in Europe, EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in an interview with CNBC . The European Commission opened an investigation into Apple in March to determine if Apple's EU app marketplace changes were complying with DMA regulations. The DMA requires Apple to provide developers with an option to distribute apps outside of the App Store and without ‌App Store‌'s fees. Apple implemented support for app marketplaces with iOS 17.4, but it charges an 0.50 euro Core Technology Fee for each download after the initial 1 million annual installs. Vestager does not believe that Apple's changes meet the requirements of the DMA. "We have a number of Apple issues; I find them very serious," she said. "I was very surprised that we would have such suspicions of Apple being non-compliant." She went on to say that this implementation "

iOS 18 Introduces More Charging Limit Options on iPhone 15 Models: 85%, 90%, and 95%

All four iPhone 15 models feature a setting that prevents the devices from charging beyond 80% while toggled on, which can potentially improve an iPhone battery's lifespan by reducing the time that the battery is fully charged. And with iOS 18, Apple has taken this feature a step further by adding new 85%, 90%, and 95% charging limit options. Screenshot: Aaron Perris The feature can be found in the Settings app under Battery → Charging. The charging limit feature remains exclusive to the iPhone 15 lineup on the first iOS 18 beta, with the option not found on the iPhone 14 Pro or older. The first iOS 18 beta is now available for Apple Developer Program members, and a public beta will follow in July. Following beta testing, the update should be widely released to all users with an iPhone XS or newer in September.
