    iFun recently reported that its sources say there will be no more betas for iOS 7 until a GM is released at next month’s event.

    If they think iOS 7 is ready for GM, then I laugh in their faces. Not even close.

    The last beta will still have issues though, otherwise that would be labeled GM no ?

    I guess that makes sense considering apple came out with beta 6 just to fix a small bug, why wouldn't they just wait for the next beta to fix that bug? Unless there isn't gonna gone another beta. That is the only reason I believe it.

    It was a critical error which needed to be fixed quickly, ergo they couldn't wait till the next beta. It was a 13 MB beta update. Had to be done.

    They didn't troll us, they're just incredibly unreliable and everything they say should be taken with a grain of salt. They've been wrong A LOT in the past.

    They didn't troll us. That's implying that they deliberately lied. They have no reason to do this as it just reduces their credibility further.

    It's possible Apple is trying to catch BGR's source. Or, there was a last-minute delay for whatever reason, it could still come today. Or tomorrow. Anything is possible...

    I know what the update was for I'm saying it couldn't wait till the next beta a few days later? But if there was never supposed to be another beta then that explains beta 6 and the fact that it came unexpected and was only a 13mb updated to address one bug.


    Totally not saying this is what happened or I know anything more then anybody else, this is just my theory and I hope I'm wrong.
