  • iOS 7 Beta 3 Now Available for Developer Testing


    Apple has Monday afternoon seeded iOS 7 Beta 3 to developers for preview testing ahead of the Fall release of iOS 7 to the public. The third beta has come exactly two weeks after iOS 7 Beta 2 as predicted last month.

    The iOS 7 Beta 3 update for developers includes a handful of bug fixes and stability improvements. As Apple warns with every beta release, iOS 7 Beta 3 should only be installed on development devices dedicated solely to beta software development.

    To update an iOS 7 beta device to the latest beta firmware, you can navigate to Settings > General > Software Update and find the update. From there you can download and install the update over the air (OTA) via a Wi-Fi network.

    The update is for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. We will keep you updated on any new features found in the new release.

      Got my phone to update but can't get my iPad to connect, I'm guessing the servers are just swamped.

      Font change? All my fonts have changed. Notifications on the lock screen, banners, messages. It appears that even the fonts in settings have changed. Anyone else seeing this? I am not sure how I feel about it yet.

      The font on the lock screen status bar is certainly larger which I like.

      Not all App Store apps work, some just crash upon launching but most work ok. To downgrade you have to do a DFU restore back to 6.1.4.

      If iPhone 5 is your primary phone I strongly recommend NOT to install. Most AppStore apps will not work.

      Simply hit Restore in iTunes to downgrade back to 6.1.4.

      Not true. I restored my iPad 3 from beta 2 to 6.1.3 by just hitting Restore in iTunes.

      You can't hide apps in the news stand anymore and they fixed the define/dictionary.
      The battery life seems better and so far no reboots.

      For some people it wont work unless a DFU is done. I had to downgrade my iPad after iOS 7 wouldn't boot and I had to do a DFU so I wouldn't get an error during the restore from iTunes. A DFU is a guaranteed downgrade and really is no different as far as you still have to restore from a backup with a normal restore.

      Most AppStore apps do work. I have had iOS 7 since beta 1 on my i5 and use it as my primary device. Besides the really short battery life in beta 1 it has been fine. The only app I have that won't launch on my i5 is Google+. My iPad is different though, I have several apps that wont launch there, Google+ and Linked In to name two. The apps I regularly use are fine though.

      Not yet, have to wait for someone to upload it. Download beta 2 and then do the OTA update.
