iOS 7 & OS X Mavericks Betas Could Be Delayed By Dev Center Hack

iOS-7-Messages-004

Just a friendly note. Apple has so far been releasing new betas of iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks every other Monday, like clockwork. But with the iTunes Developer Center, down for almost four days now (because of a hack that might have been committed by a researcher) and no end in sight, if you’re expecting iOS 7 Beta 4 and OS X Mavericks Beta 4 to drop today, you might not want to hold your breath: if Apple can’t get the Developer Center up and running this afternoon, releasing a new beta isn’t likely.

    The patch is posted on the patching server, but since Dev Center is their top priority to restoration you could expect everyone focused more on that versus the patching network.

    Hmm too bad. Was hoping for a Spotify volume fix

    and the release of Mav4 today shows why news sites should not pull crap out of you know where and post it without any factual sources or information for such assumptions…
