iOS 7 Beta 3 To Be Available On July 8 [Rumor]

iOS-7-in-hand

Apple is expected to seed its third iOS 7 beta to carriers and registered developers on Monday, July 8, according to “trusted sources” familiar with its plans. If the date is accurate, it suggests the Cupertino company is planning to release iOS 7 betas in two-week intervals.

The rumor comes from a source for Boy Genius Report, who accurately predicted the release date of the second iOS 7 beta earlier this week. They also claim that Apple is still working on refining iOS 7’s new design, and that beta 3 could bring further improvements.

The release date for the second beta was fairly easy to predict because the average time between Apple’s first and second beta release for iOS is just over 14 days. However, the average time between beta 2 and beta 3 is closer to 15 days, and we’ve predicted it’s likely to arrive around July 10 instead.

What we’re fairly sure of is that iOS 7 beta 3 will be available the week after next. What day exactly is still unconfirmed, but we’ll find out soon enough.

    Really hoping they fix the calendar. It sucks not being able to see anything in the month view, nothing, nada, not even little circles for birthdays. Pretty lame.

    It’s not lame. It’s beta.

    Except those things were something you can see in the current calendar, so at the moment it doesn’t seem like a bug, it seems like they missed something at the developer round table. :/

    Nope. They said they won’t. They said they’re releasing all these betas and all the little things that don’t work in the beta are just going to stay the way they are. Apple refuses to acknowledge what “beta” means.

    Oh. No. Wait. That’s -you-.
