anyone else have this issue, beta 2 was my last OTA, everything else after has been a manual install including beta 6, running att iphone 5 32gb and I wonder how many other people it is like this for?

I updated fine from beta 5 to 6. Make sure you have a registered UDID and are using wifi.

I've updated to each beta OTA every time, never had a problem.

My iPhone (4s) has been updating without any trouble, my brother (iPhone 5) hasn't had an OTA update since 4, he's stuck on it.

It's almost like it isn't finished or something... :rolleyes:

Just because betas are finished products doesn't mean OP can't ask questions about bugs that seem very rare. But thank you for your invaluable input.

@OP, maybe it's something wrong with your physical phone? Have you tried a clean install? I've only seen a few people having this problem of not being able to OTA update. Most people (me included) have updated OTA perfectly fine.

Is there any way to clean install and keep my text messages call logs and stuff? If so how?

Exactly! I love how after anybody asks a question, there's always that person who reminds us it's a beta. Since this bug doesn't affect every user, that gives the OP all the more reason to ask a question about it.

OP, I've updated every beta OTA without a problem.

I'm pretty sure your backup will restore those onto your phone. Or you can get iExplore and take those off manually, and then put them back on when you are done installing the OS.

Are you sure you have enough space available for the update? If you don't ios 7 won't show the option to proceed with the update. Had this happen on two iPhones recently.

Happened to me too, but it does say that you need more space and I think it even gives you the option to view your phone usage and delete things.

space has nothing to do with anything cause I have plenty of space, but I DO want to try the iexplorer option.

What you all are saying is do a clean install after backup and than put the text and stuff back manually through iexplorer?
