    With WWDC announcement for June 10th to debut iOS7 when ip will the beta version be released to developers?

    With just 7 weeks to go, I'm surprised that beta 1 has not been released as of yet. Usually in the past there was a minimum of 4 betas all the way up to over 8 betas released before it was released to the public. Seems odd not to already been pushed out yet.

    a new iOS version is usually demoed at WWDC and then beta1 will be made available to dev's for a few months till new hardware in September/October time.

    The firmware will be "announced" and demoed at the Conference, not released to the public.
    The initial beta will come shortly after that leading up to the general release weeks later.

    Apple will demo iOS 7 at the WWDC keynote on June 10th. They will then release iOS 7.0 Beta 1 the moment the keynote finishes.

    This is how they've always done it:
    Announcement + Demo --> Beta 1 release an hour or so later --> Beta 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, etc --> GM Release with the announcement of the new iPhone (whenever that occurs) --> Public release when the new iPhone starts actually shipping

    You have to be a Member of the $99 U.S.A. Dollar a Year ADC Program to test the Beta's. You also have to NOT live in a U.S.A. Embargoed Territory, and you have to Sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure-Agreement) with Apple as well. is where you go to Sign Up.

    Releasing a beta would mean having developers pore over it and leak the changes to the public. making WWDC's keynote rather moot since everyone would know everything. And letting someone else announce their stuff really isn't Apple's style even under Tim.

    So you'll get your betas after the keynote. Probably the same day or 1-2 later

    Delayed? Anyone who expected the next iPhone released before Aug/Sept was kidding themselves. The new iPhone is always released with the new version of the OS. The new version of iOS was, of course, always going to be demoed at WWDC. Therefore the new iPhone can't come until several months after that. Also, Tim Cook told everyone not to expect new hardware before the Fall.

    You've been reading too much Digitimes.

    Yes iPhone 5S is delayed just like iPhone 6 has a 5" screen. :)

    Which was everyone considering even MacRumors reported multiple times on it.

    People were guessing release dates from May all the way to Sep.

    I thought it was pretty funny.

    They used to do a demo in April and release it to the developers all the way up to June.

    I am well aware. But iOS 5 and iOS 6 were both debuted at WWDC and it seems the logical schedule for Apple to continue having the developer previews launch at that point, when they have so many developers and workshops right there to kick it off.

    it would be silly for Apple to release a completely new OS with a new design straight to public without first demo-ing its features and telling devs how to code for the new features that are found in the OS....
