iOS 7 Beta 7 To Be Available Today [Rumor]

iOS-7-in-hand

Apple is expected to make iOS 7 beta 7 available to registered developers today, just days after it released iOS 7 beta 6. This is expected to be the final beta before Apple seeds the Gold Master release early next month.

“We are told by our trusted sources that Apple has once again seeded a new build of iOS 7 to partners, and that it should be released to developers later today,” writes Jonathan Geller of Boy Genius Report, who expects the release to come around 1 p.m. EDT, like previous betas.

BGR previously reported that beta 6 would come this week, and that it would be the last ahead of a Gold Master release on September 5. However, last Thursday’s release contained “an emergency bug patch” for iTunes in the Cloud that had to be rolled out early.

Beta 7 isn’t expected to contain any major changes; it’s likely to bring performances improvements and bug fixes instead. Provided there are no major issues with it, next month’s Gold Master release will be the one that’s rolled out to the public following Apple’s rumored iPhone event on September 10.

    They’d better released OS X beta 6 first. It’s impossible to test beta 5 cause of an annoying scrolling bug.

    Can someone beg Apple to add the ability to add songs to a current playlist on the fly? I’m still baffled that they haven’t added this feature over the years. They also need to fix the “shuffle” option. Not everyone wants to shuffle all albums from an artist; some want to shuffle a particular album.

    iFun recently reported that its sources say there will be no more betas for iOS 7 until a GM is released at next month’s event. The site has been correct on beta releases in the past and tells us the info comes from a reliable source.
