    Okay forgive me for asking, but someone was going to eventually ask! Based on past released betas, when do you think iOS 7 Beta 2 will come out? Monday the 24th?

    They've got quite a few things to fix and polish, one week may not be enough

    Maybe in two weeks?

    I think maybe once has Apple ever released a new beta after just a single week, it's almost always (if not always) been 2-3 weeks per new beta, if not longer even. Does anyone have the dates handy of the beta releases for past iOSs? I remember someone made a site dedicated to it even, with a fancy graph during last year's iOS 6 beta testing.

    I'm thinking next week. This is quite the overhaul and I'm sure they are getting tons if feedback.

    Brand new design team, brand new and many many differant API's and UI changes. I'd say any past history has gone out of the window.

    The first beta is usually a few weeks old too, they get it lined up before WWDC. Beta 2 usually is more than a month worth of work.

    Probably not one week, but they don't have to fix EVERYTHING by the next beta. That's why it's a beta.

    Do the beta updates go OTA even for nonregistered UDIDs?

    Of course they don't have to fix everything. They fix what was reported to them and release beta 2. New bugs arrive, they fix and release beta 3 and so on

    I'm curious to see if that affects the beta schedule.

    Thanks!

    Looking forward to the next beta. This current one has been very buggy for me. Just hope they fix the battery drain and the resprings.

    Things dont usually change between iOS betas, but I have a feeling that iOS 7 still needs some design work before release. Mostly some of those icons and the reminders/notes apps. They just don't fit. Im pretty confident that despite what Ive said the icons we see now were thrown together pretty quick; Apple even had different icons then the ones that made it into the final b1 build on their website

    That 73 degrees icon just might be live weather!

    I didn't think beta updates were released OTA?

    When it comes down to releasing the final version of iOS 7, will I have to do a fresh install or I can continue to use the GM afterwards?

    The GM and the final version are the same thing. Once you have it, you can continue to use it. Just keep upgrading your betas.

    Any ideas if there's an iOS7 developer Twitter account dedicated to updates purely about Beta releases?

    Ever since I got beta. My signal has lowered and my data has slowed down. Almost to the point where it says cannot connect to Internet. Has anyone received the same problem?
