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




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

Can someone who's had access to these betas tell me what iOS 7 is like? Does it feel solid? What do you think of its design?

Will Apple release beta 7 today or will Tim Cook troll us again?


(that is a reference to a thread in the iOS 7 subforum)

There's plenty of this in the iOS 7 forum, but the short of it is, for me, the design is a mixed bag. Love the minimalism, animations, lack of skeuomorphism; hate the icons, music app, and color scheme. It's pretty solid on an iPhone 5.

If this is the final release I hope it has a bunch of changes. Everyday I find glitches and issues that need fixing.

I'm thinking of moving to iOS 7 early now. I mean, early as in omg-I-can't-wait-for-the-announcement. Beta 7 ought to be solid enough on an iPhone 5.

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

The actual final release will be the GM (supposedly to be done on September 5), so even if this is the final beta, Apple has some time for fixes after this one. Not that I'd expect more than a typical beta-from-beta number of changes, since even September 5 is getting close!

Wow, that is fast. Golden Master? I can't wait to see when this comes out to the general public and then see what the adoption rate will be.

Yes.

But I think there'll be a Beta 8 before GM.

Beta 5 is already very stable on the iPhone 5, but not so much on the iPad, so I hope beta 7 will take care of that.

I doubt it's the final release. It is still a bit buggy, and there are about 20 days left until the debut of the new iPhone. One more after this one maybe?
