Apple Posts iOS 5 Beta 7 for Developers

Apple has released the seventh beta version of iOS 5 to developers as an Over-the-Air update. The delta release, which only downloads changed code, is a lighter one, weighing in at around 70MB, compared to 144MB for beta 6.

We'll be on the lookout for new features and changes in this release, which comes just 12 days after beta 6 was released. In addition to iOS 5 Beta 7, Apple has pushed Xcode 4.2 Developer Preview 7, iTunes 10.5 beta 7, and Apple TV Software beta 6.

I did have the OTA trouble and I do not have a developer account.
I did beta-test for a developer though. That must be why my UDID is registered cuz I sure didn't pay anyone.

I am not. Paid for mine to be registered.

FWIW I did it on my iPad 2 and Verizon iPhone.

iPad 2 was fine this time and iPhone 4 got stuck in DFU mode.

Wasn't hard to fix at least.

Not sure this line of thought has any validity, but for the record, I'm a paid developer and had no trouble with OTA iPad and Verizon iPhone 4 updates.

Same here, no troubles at all.

Here's another question for those who paid to get it registered. (or got it registered as a beta tester for another developer)

When you first downloaded the beta, did you get it from apple.com/developer?
If so, go back there and see if you can still download it from there.

----------

...but it seems that more and more of these issues aren't fixed before the "gold master".

The "just works" tag line is becoming a joke. Lion is a mess for some people.... Any reason to expect IOS5 to be any better?

I can tell you are a very strongly opinionated person. I won't bother answering this as I see you have already formed a strong opinion of apple's products.

Personally, I wouldn't use the bugs in a beta as a basis for dismissing that tag line.

Erase all music from device and sync them again. Then it will work fine.

Apple never claimed the beta "just works".
