Didn't they say rather explicitly it's coming out in March?
They were referring to the final iOS 7.1 release.

I'm hoping beta 3 will be released tomorrow but it will likely be next week sometime.

If they patch the jailbreak with beta 3 I think I'll stay on 2. Unless beta 3 has any major changes.

To me, as a European, this is the only acceptable date format. ;)

Why do they need such a long time to release the final 7.1? Three months is such a long time for these minimalistic features....

Which itself makes no sense other than America just had to be different. Can think of no good reason youd have month then day. But it makes the states happy so no matter lol.

7.1 release in March to tie in with a new product release?

Why drive on the right side of the road? Why run 110 volts? NTSC vs PAL, etc...

I always wonder if it's America that wants to be different, or is it the rest of the world that doesn't want to follow America?

Sooner or later most if these types of threads just end up closed and/or in Wasteland.

It makes sense in the sense that it follows how someone would say or write it out in words: in US when talking or writing out a date it would appear as "January 6, 2014" where it's month and then the day and then the year, which would look like "1/6/2014" if simply written in all numbers essentially. That's not to say it's right or good/better, but it appears that there's at least some reasoning behind it.

Its going to be sooner than March. There are far too many annoying bugs everyone is reporting for them to wait another 2 months to release an update. Interface glitches, random crashes, safari crashes, random re-springing. I just cant see them waiting that long. They probably seeded it to carrier partners first because of extended testing of the car features or other major features.

My bet is that beta 3 will be the final beta before release. Beta 1 and 2 have been fairly stable by most reports.

Side note.....how did this thread get on the idiotic subject of how different parts of the world write their dates? Is this really news to people. Adapt and get over it. America isn't the only place on earth ya know.

Wasteland??? It cant go there I really wanted to hear what people had to say about this.
I guess the point is that it doesn't really matter what people have to say about the release date as no one knows (or at least no one that would really post here about it) and no history or "reasoning" would really come up with anything than just a guess that really doesn't mean much beyond just being a guess and nothing more. Ultimately it becomes a discussion about nothing, at least nothing of consequence or much use.

I remember there was a time with the iOS 7 betas where someone made a script that increased the build number and if the page said "Session has expired", it'd be taken as a correct link. It was a productive discussion and that ended up being the build number for the beta released that day.
