    Ok, so I just installed iOS 7 on my iPhone 5. It's working pretty well other than the battery is draining much faster. I know that as the first beta, it is not optimized and this is to be expected. Will Apple release another beta version with better battery life before officially releasing it to the public? If they do, would I just be able to install it over the air like I would with iOS 6? I am not a developer. Thanks!

    No, you'll need to log into the developer portal and download beta 2.

    I live in Oztwaylya where it's tomorrow already, I can't download it yet. Does that mean the 27" retina iMac is being released? :confused:

    I think it's gonna be out at 9:41 AM Pacific because that's the time on all the iOS 7 screenshots on Apple's website. :)

    I know that Apple is going to keep tweaking it before the final release, but since it's only available for developers (officially, anyways) will the future beta releases be available to anyone who has iOS 7 over the air (through the settings app)

    Yeah :(

    If you have a Mac you can get OS X Mavericks. It came out a couple weeks ago :cool:

    ----------

    To answer your question, it's a wait see. While it's likely to be an OTA (as well as through the dev center), it could also be just the dev center. I don't see why they wouldn't do an OTA, though.

    They released that as OS X Bogan here, got it already. Now my iMac is too fast and I have to work harder to keep up. :mad:

    Op regardless of wether it's over the air or through the dev portal it'll be available. Obviously ota is easier but it really depends on how much of the os has to be overhauled as to wether it's an ota update or a iTunes based restored update.

    The next beta probably will be available OTA, if not you can always download the .ipsw file and update through iTunes.
