    I hope Apple goes back to the old beta schedule today since Beta 4 was one week late caused by the dev center outage.

    There is no regular 2-week schedule, and beta 4 was not late. It was simply a 3-week wait instead of 2 (very common in previous betas). It had nothing to do with the dev site being down, as shown by them still releasing the Mac OS beta that day.

    The only thing beta 5 will bring is new threads, 70% complaining, 30% asking when the next one is coming

    Hopefully it'll bring bug fixes and UI tweaks to bring us closer to the GM.

    people complaining that being longer than 2 weeks is not normal are clearly not developer or have not done any research into betas.

    I know, right? But apparently some people think all it will bring is more complaining. I for one don't pay attention to the whining threads; I'm just looking for resolution for a few specific bugs I've noticed. And a weekly or bi-weekly release schedule would be awesome!

    Betas are released when they are ready. No sooner or later than that.

    There will NOT be an iOS 7 beta update today, two weeks from last release is August 12th, not today.

    Beta 5 isn't expected to be out today. Beta 4 was likely not late as it followed the pattern of being released a month before the previous beta expires just as every past iOS 7 beta has followed. Having said that, beta 5 will probably be out next Monday.

    Nobody except for Apple has any expected date for B5.

    We don't know that was the reason (it probably wasn't). Beta 5 will probably be released on 12th August.

    So I guess it's just been a coincidence that all of the iOS 7 betas have followed the same pattern without fail thus far.

    Call it what you want but no one knows the dates except for the people releasing the software. One thing for sure is you dont.

    Well I never said beta 5 is DEFINITELY coming out on August 12th. I'm just taking a guess based on past releases. Not sure why you feel the need to criticize every post I make.

    That's quite an exaggeration on your part. I don't criticize every post that you make.

    Ever since I told you that devs needed xcode and the .ipsw for the betas, you seem to have some grudge against me. I'm not trying to revist that argument, but I'm just saying.

    No idea what you are talking about. The only thing that I am saying is that no one except Apple knows when the next beta is coming out.....For some reason that offends you. I have no idea why.

    I'm just saying that there seems to be a pattern which each beta has followed with iOS 7 and that we can expect the next beta on August 12th and you're telling me no, that's not possible, because no one knows except Apple.

    I'm not offended by you're response, but ever since this, you seem to be replying to some of my posts like you're annoyed with me or something. I don't want to mess up this thread, so just reply to me in PM if you want so mybe we can work it out.
