    iOS 2 beta 1 to beta 2: 11 days
    iOS 3 beta 1 to beta 2: 14 days
    iOS 4 beta 1 to beta 2: 12 days
    iOS 5 beta 1 to beta 2: 18 days(outlier)
    iOS 6 beta 1 to beta 2: 14 days

    So if I had to go off this I would say it would be out before July 3rd.

    It looks like they aim for 2 weeks. I'm guessing June 24th.

    Correct. iOS 5 beta 2 was released on June 24th, 2011, although it was a Friday, not a Monday. :cool:

    the beta doesn't expire for another month and and 9 days so I had to add some time on it lol. It seems like they push it out faster depending on the severity of the bugs. Like since iOS 5 was one of the bigger iOS changes it had a crap ton of bugs.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IOS_SDK
    OS 2 went to 8
    OS 3 went to 5
    OS 4 went to 4
    OS 5 went to 7
    OS 6 went to 4

    Usually depends on the expiration dates

    Of major releases (x.0 updates), there have been 4 -7 betas. iOS 7 is a larger update so it'll likely take at least 5 betas.
