    I want to share with you, that after realizing that there will be no Beta 7, I just decide today that I will downgrade to iOS 6.1.4. I installed all the iOS 7 betas and it was a great (although frustrating sometimes) experience. Using the betas would let me to a fresh install in a few weeks anyway, so better start sooner.

    Anybody will go back in order to feel the excitement when the official (or GM) release arrives?

    Yep, i feel you there dude. I went back to 6.1.3 on my 4 eventhough iam a developer i just tested my app in progress and it works fine. But now i went back and waiting for the GM or final but i wont upgrade if the final is slow on the iPhone 4. On my iPad mini iOS 7 works okay but not as fast as iOS 6 was but still i already know the final on the mini would be as stable as iOS 6.

    OP- this is exactly what I said on my Instagram.

    I tried to say the same thing in my thread, but it came out wrong.

    There might still be a beta 7 though. Monday or Tuesday.

    Based on past releases, what was the sortest gap between a beta and a GM?

    This.

    Everyone thinks there won't be a Beta 7. Let's wait until late on Tuesday. If we don't have it by then, then it's safe to presume we won't get Beta 7.

    I can respect the OP's decision, but after using iOS 7 for a few weeks, I can't stand looking at an iOS 6 device now. I'm completely hooked on 7.

    Me too. The new clean look is fantastic.

    I think everyone is excited for iOS 7's release...well except the 20% that absolutely hate iOS 7.

    Completely agree as well. I can't imagine going back to iOS 6.

    Another question came to my mind before the downgrade. Will apps be updated for the GM day or until the official (yet unknown date)?

    iOS 7 app updates can only be released once iOS 7 makes its public debut.

    I'm sure I'll go to iOS 7 when it's released and I've verified the apps I need work. If it wasn't for app instability (which is to be expected) I would have stayed on the betas longer.

    You know what. I was thinking of doing this. I didn't installed iOS 6 Beta when it was being tested for this reason. TBH with you, when I look at other peoples iPhones its so bland and boring....I doubt I can move back!

    The only reason I went back to iOS 6 is because a few apps, which I use a lot, haven't been working since beta 5. Once the GM is released, I'll be upgrading.

    So that would mean 15 days between b7 and GM if they released b7 on Monday. I could see that happening with the tight iOS 7 schedule...

    If they don't release b7 on Monday/Tuesday then I will be going back to iOS6 on my iPad until GM because b6 on iPad 2 is unusable (constant resprings/crashes).

    I wouldn't be surprised if they keep iOS7 for iPad in beta longer since it is so unstable compared to the iPhone.

    If we don't get another beta, it will just prove that iOS 7 isn't ready.
