    I've had the iOS 7 beta on my phone since June 10th, and have had very few issues with it. About an hour ago, the iPhone died and I got the red battery saying that the phone needed to be plugged in. I plugged it in, and it has been charging for a half hour, yet the red battery is still there when I click the home button. Do you guys think that this is an issue or I should give it some more time? Has this happened to any of you guys?

    What do you have it plugged into? The wall or USB? Try the wall adapter.

    Are you by any chance using a UDID spot bought on eBay or someother place? Or did you install without having a Dev Account?

    I dont know if it will help, but I've had nothing but trouble with third-party cables and chargers since ios 7.

    Make absolutely sure you're charging with the cable and charger that came with the phone.

    Also, I think someone in another thread said they held the power and home buttons at the same time and it started up.

    I have had the same problem with third party cables. So I traded my cables with my wife and all is great in the world.

    If you get it to turn on successfully. I would suggest downgrading to iOS 6.1 (if you want) If a iOS 7 Beta 1 bug was able to do that to your phone, it can do it again or worst.

    Reboot while holding the volume buttons. That fixed a similar issue I had on iOS 6 beta.

    I'd do a reset anyway. It sounds like you may have had a process gone mad. You can pop open an xcode console to make sure all is well in cpu-ville.

    Yor iPhone may also be one of the first batches, known for their battery dying after a while. The same happened to mine - had to exchange it under warranty.
