iPhone OS 4 beta 4 features AT&T tethering

Apple has launched a new beta version of iPhone OS 4 (beta 4), which is currently available only to those who have an Apple iPhone Developer Program account.

The big news here is that iPhone OS 4 beta 4 comes with an option that allows users to setup internet tethering on AT&T’s network – this was discovered by a member of the MacRumors forum.

Of course, AT&T doesn’t allow iPhone owners to actually use tethering (despite promising this feature a long time ago), but it would make a lot of sense if the carrier will enable the feature once Apple launches the new iPhone 4G / HD – this could happen as soon as next month.

Until more details on AT&T iPhone tethering show up, you can get the latest iPhone OS beta via Apple’s website – as mentioned above, you need to have an Apple iPhone Developer Program account to download the SDK.
