Hey all.

The title says it all really.

We unexpectedly had Beta 6 released last week but it only came in at 13.5MB and it fixed a critical bug that Apple wanted to fix and release straight away.

So. Will we get Beta 7 tomorrow or on Tuesday?

Just want your opinions, thanks.

Don't mean to be rude but there's plenty of topics about that and it really does not matter what we think as it will not change Apple's plan which I do not know. I would say it is not unlikely to see a new beta by tuesday but again, I'm not in the secret.

I don't think it's coming tomorrow, but with no big changes it doesn't matter to me, I'm happy with 6. The GM will have more surprises than in previous years seeing it's a whole new OS and the secrecy double down:D Nobody is seeing that until launch day...well the carriers will I guess.

There probably won't be a Beta 7, since the big iPhone event seems to be on Sept 10. So probably, if anything, we'll probably see the Gold Master next.

They could easily release beta 7 tomorrow or Tuesday. GMs are released on the day of the keynote; so in this case September 10th. 3 weeks before final beta and GM is very reasonable, and I'd think they'd want to get another beta out for testing before the GM: I'm sure they're trying to get this done right.

It's not that far off from the all so useful "Safari is snappier" posts that plague (or at least used to for a long time) most release threads. Nothing actually useful or that really hasn't already been "discussed" most of the time.

My prediction: Beta 7 drops tomorrow at 1pm EST.

My reasoning? If they are supplying the GM to carriers on 9/5 they need time to test any left over bugs... Such as the AT&T signal bug issue.

We got a hotfix update LAST week. Critical thinking would tell us, then, that this won't be treated as a full on update, and that it is very likely still that a new beta could be released this week (2 weeks from the last full-on bug fix update).

9to5Mac claims no more betas, just GM in September.

Based off of some report that iFun cited from a German site, which cited "trusted sources." None of these are any more substantial than any other reports.

I still think it's highly likely we'll see a beta 7 this week or next week, followed by a GM a few weeks later.

Just think there are too many issues for them to think that one more update will be fine.

madsci954
Aug 19, 2013, 03:15 PM
I think back to the morning beta 4 launched and all the reports saying there would be beta 4, 2 more betas, then the GM.

But after beta 6's "emergency fix" I wonder if that one more will come as a "full" beta before the GM. Day ain't over yet :)

Actually, 9to5Mac was just referencing iFun's claim that there would be no more betas. Personally, I'd be very surprised if that were true. But, I guess if we're still on beta 6 this time tomorrow, they're probably right.

There are major issues in iOS 7 beta 6, that were not patched from beta 5. One of those is the panic that happens when the iOS device boots up. It takes 2+ mins. and it happens when no passcode is used. Another bug that happened to me was a frozen screen, unable to scroll or do anything. I had to reboot my device.

Ya know the great thing about this thread?

The chief complaint is that when he types in a beta operating system that it doesn't keep up with him! and this can be fixed in a day.

There's tons of legit issues in iOS 7 but I've never seen typing come up. Crash with multitouch gestures yes. Springboard crashing, yes.

Typing in messages? The guy claims to be a developer and his biggest complaint is that the keyboard isn't going fast enough, and it can be fixed in a day.

Yes, out of the new uidynamics, new multitasking Apis, new cocoa touch features, iCloud core data changes, spritekit, and so and so forth. The big problem... That he can't type fast enough.

Hi all,

Just my thoughts:

Rumors are actually telling that:
- iOS 7 beta programm has ended, why not...
- Ipad iOS 7 final release could be delayed because of bugs and crashes

But it looks "strange" for me that Apple doesn't want/need to release any new beta, at least for the iPad...

Also, we didn't see any new Mavericks or ML 10.8.5 betas for weeks... Mavericks is also far from polished, and I can't imagine that Apple decided to finish that product internally now...

PS: Sorry for my poor english...

The only time it was 3 weeks between betas was from Beta 3 to Beta 4 and thats because the hacker took down the Apple Dev Site for a good while. And then after Beta 4 was released, 8 days later, Beta 5 was released.

Probably not, mavericks was still released that week. More likely it just wasn't ready.

The bottom line is that there is no pattern, Apple will release what it wants when it thinks it's ready.

No, it's still not clear. If you weren't interested in the topic, why did you click on the thread and take the time to post a comment?

You may want to read again what I wrote in my previous posts.

May I ask why is it of any interest at all? Why are you interested in others' opinions about the date a company will release an updated version of an operating system?

In this quote of my first post, I asked the reason the OP was interested in this very topic, topic which is of no interest whatsoever to me. What I found a little interesting is, instead, the OP asking opinions about the date a company will release an updated version of an operating system. If you notice, this is exactly what I wrote in the post.
And the OP has answered.

Also, I do not have to justify why I do anything to you. If it still is not clear to you, I'm afraid you will have to accept it and move on, as I will ignore any further reply.

I hope the other beta helps me fix the sms problem... can't send sms to other phones other than other iphones

oh man... this is probably an even more annoying issue than mine. I am not getting any whatsapp push notifications. every single other app is working fine for me, and i get notifications. beta 6 seems like a final build to me stability wise. but this bloody whatsapp situation is driivng me mad.

In your case, i'm guessing you just cant send any sms's at all. and waht you're sending to other iphones is imessages.

I'd really hate to think that beta 6 is it until GM.Do partners ever really get earlier beta releases as opposed to early more stable releases like GM builds? I know it's sometimes reported that they do, but is it something that has actually been shown to be true when it comes to simple beta updates (again, unlike something like GM builds which we know to be the case as it has been more than simply reported by some leaks and essentially shown to be the case).

I hope quick reply comes in 7.1, but if they want to do it correctly, they should have an API (like in Macericks) so apps like textie and whatsapp can utilize it. This makes me think they'll wait till 8, as I don't think they add new developer APIs in .x releases.

It's very possible that they noticed a major problem before it being released, or that it was never due at all. Simply, we'll never know. They naysayers will claim it as a sign that it was never due yesterday or today. Or apple could be testing to see who's leaking details.

is it safe to do the Beta 7 OTA update? Or safer to do a clean install?

Beta 7 hasn't been released yet..

OTA should be fine but clean install is always recommended.

It's likely that Apple gave this new build (Beta 7) to the carriers with the intention to give them a few days to go through it with a fine toothed comb to see if there are any bugs they can find before they release it to the devs. With the GM build coming up they will want to know if the carriers have any issues to be addressed that normal devs may not find themselves. Just my thoughts on this...

They tweaked the Settings icon and some minor gradient changes. Overall I can't see anything new.

I always did a OTA update from Beta 2 > Beta 5, but I was noticing issues I shouldn't have been. Did a clean install of Beta 5 and it seemed a lot better (i.e. rotation animations smoother etc).

Oh and Safari was snappier :rolleyes::D

Yes but that doesn't mean there will be another beta! As they will just iron out the remaining issues in private. There is usually quite a long gap between the last beta and when the GM is released, in fact with iOS 6 it was so long the beta expired and they had to release a new one to extend the expiration date

I am aware but I do think that we will have a beta 7 prior to GM.

Didn't Beta 6 get released on a Thursday at 17:00 PST?

I know it was a hot fix, but surely that was proof that predicting these release times is fairly pointless I'm afraid?

All I'll say is that I'll be surprised if there isn't one more Beta before GM as there's still quite a few bugs / glitches, not least Safari crashing like a drunk at a wedding.

Also the beta builds released to devs are behind internal builds, which are further along, with more bugs fixed.

The whole point of hot fixes is that they aren't part of a normal schedule, so that don't count.

. . . The whole point of hot fixes is that they aren't part of a normal schedule, so that don't count.

I realise that, but with this Beta programme it doesn't seem like there is a "normal" schedule.

Firstly some people were speculating Apple would stick to 2 weeks and that didn't happen.

Some (myself included) wrongly speculated that new Betas were released 1 month prior to expiration of the previous one.

I think we've had releases on 3 different weekdays have we not for various supposed reasons?

It's probably a moot point anyway now as there's likely only to be 1 more beta before GM, you'd think, given the general consensus of a September 10th launch event.

Guys, I don't think beta 7 is coming out on Aug 19th.

Seriously: If a new beta doesn't come until monday, I doubt we'll see another beta before the GM.

Agreed. I still expect one at a random time. It only makes sense at this point considering how all over the place the rest of the cycle has been.

Exactly, it was a hot fix. Apple doesn't typically release betas on Thursdays at 8 PM Eastern.
