iOS 7 Beta 7 Reportedly Launching for Developers Today [Updated]

ios_7_iconBGR reports that Apple is planning to launch the seventh beta version of iOS 7 today.

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. We can confirm the build number is much higher than the previous beta, and we would assume that iOS 7 beta 7 should be distributed and made available for developers around 1:00 p.m. EDT, as usual.

Last week, the site reported that today would see the launch of iOS beta 6, but just hours later the new beta made an unusual late-day appearance. iOS 7 beta 6 was, however, an emergency bug fix for iTunes in the Cloud issues, and thus appears to have been an unexpected addition to Apple's release schedule, bumping back the originally planned beta 6 to a beta 7 arriving today.

According to BGR's previous report, the beta version being released today is planned to be the final version seeded to developers before a golden master version begins making its way to Apple employees and partners around September 5. That golden master would then be made available to developers following Apple's rumored iPhone media event on September 10, with a release to the public happening perhaps a week or so later just prior to the launch of new iPhone hardware.

Update: Apple's usual 10:00 AM Pacific release time has passed with no sign of iOS 7 beta 7.

I hope they will finally include the fingerprint scanning feature in this beta! :mad:

Apple is so dumb, they don't even realize there's hardly any time left for us to beta-test the feature! :mad:

And exactly what hardware are you planning to use to test it? :rolleyes:

Let's hope the random Safari crashing is fixed.
It will crash snappier.

That is exactly what I was thinking. I still have numerous crashes on my ipad and iphone 5, rotational issues, keyboard lag, notification problems, bad battery life etc...

I'm shocked this is the last beta pre GM!
Hmm. Not seeing any of that on my iPhone 5. The whole experience seems a bit laggy on my iPad 3rd Gen. Battery life has been pretty exceptional, overall on my iPhone. Keep in mind that battery life issues on dev builds usually, not always but usually point to legacy apps that haven't been updated for the new OS.

Sounds like so far the OS has been a pile of glitches and bugs. :confused: :apple:

You're listening to the wrong people. It has not.
