    Exactly two weeks after releasing the second beta of iOS 7 to developers, Apple has just pushed out a third beta version for testing. The update is arriving as both an over-the-air update to existing beta testers and through the iOS Dev Center.

    The new beta arrives as build 11A4414e, up from the second beta at build 11A4400f. Apple has also released a third developer preview of Xcode 5.

    A report from late last month had indicated that the third beta was scheduled to arrive today, although many have regarded the two-week interval as an obvious prediction given Apple's past release history. Apple typically runs on 2-3 week intervals for releasing developer builds of its major iOS operating system versions.

    iOS 7 is scheduled for release in the fall of this year, with updates to Apple's iPhone, iPad, and iPad mini all expected around the same time. If past history is any indication, iOS 7 should be made available to the public just a few days before the launch of the next-generation iPhone.

    First thing I notice is that there's a 3 after the word Beta. Sick.

    Downloading as we speak. Seems like a small update. Must not have many changes.

    It's downloading pretty fast, considering how many of us are downloading.

    Will this update brick my iPhone 5 just like updating from beta 1 to beta 2? :confused:

    Somebody in the other thread said something about updating to the new beta, then doing an "erase all content and settings" (and then presumably restore an iTunes backup) to effectively get a fresh restore without actually restoring.

    Will this work? And does it bypass UDID activation?
