iOS 7 Beta 7 Reportedly Launching for Developers Today

The seventh and final beta of ’s forthcoming iOS 7 mobile operating system could be seeded to developers later today, BGR reported Monday morning. Though the tech blog has afairly accuratetrack recordin terms of iOS 7 beta dates, it’s worth pointing outBGR last week said would relse iOS 7 Beta 6 this week.Just a few hours following that prediction spoiled BGR’s party beseeding iOS 7 Beta 6 to developers. Here’s to hoping the final iOS 7 beta lands today. Otherwise, this could be the last time I write about BGR’s predictions…According to BGR, iOS 7 Beta 7 should drop around 1pm ET / 10am PT.“We can confirm the build is much higher than the previous beta,”the site wrote and reiterated this would be the final beta before theGold Master build gets relsed on September 10, in time for ’sforthcoming media eventwhich should see theiPhone 5S/5Cannouncements.Gold Master refers to a final version of software that’s rdy for relse to manufacturing. It’s essentially the same build as the version that comes factory preloaded on latest devices.While is expected to relse iOS 7 Gold Master to developers on September 10, its own employees and carrier partners will have a chance to test the software five days rly, starting with September 5. If history is an indiion, iOS 7 will became available for public consumption in time for the new iOS device hardware availability.There should have been six iOS 7 betas apparently, but as last week rushed out the sixth beta due to an emercy fix for iTunes in the Cloud issues, the originally planned Beta 6 has now become a Beta 7.“ had actually planned on sticking to its regular relse schedule with a different update called beta 6 today,”the blog wrote. I engaged with article author Zach Epstein on Twitter to challenge him on last week’s blunder andhe acknowledgedthe same sources“nailed every relse other than this obvious anomaly”.Don’t expect any major new ftures in the seventh beta: late betas have been mostly about bug fixes and under-the-hood twks, which is usually a tell-tale sign that the software is being optimized and rdied for prime time.
