  • iOS 7 Beta 5 Seeded to Developers


    Apple Tuesday seeded iOS 7 Beta 5 to developers for testing. The update is available OTA (over the air) on existing iOS 7 devices like the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and developers also have the option of downloading the firmware files from the Developer section of Apple’s Web site.

    Tuesday’s seed of iOS 7 Beta 5 is out of line with Apple’s two-week beta refresh cycle. iOS 7 Beta 4 was seeded just last Monday, while today’s release is exactly one week and one day after the previous beta.

    The update includes several stability improvements, and notably some UI changes in the Settings application. There are expected to be some others, which we will keep you updated on as they surface.

    A tipster has informed us that the free Skype application from the App Store is nearly fully functional in this update.

      The twitter bug is annoying but overcome it by holding your finger on the tabs.
      Another thing I find annoying, don't know if it's intentional, is the call blocking feature. Yes it blocks the call, but sends them to voicemail.

      No unlock sounds for me either, does anybody know why the Twitter tab buttons are unresponsive and why you have to press really hard for them to work?

      If you are talking about the Twitter app, then this is NOT a bug in iOS 7. That is a third-party app that has not been updated to support iOS 7. There are many apps that won't even launch. Remember this is just beta and more than likely Twitter will update their app before the final release.

      I'm wondering if the keyboard transparency working for some and not for others is dependent on device. I have no keyboard transparency on my 4S. Those of you that still have the transparency, what device are you using?

      Are you sure you didn't accidentally turn on increases contrast in accessibility?

      EXCELLENT!! That's exactly what happened. I was toggling some settings to see what they did, and indeed "Increase Contrast" was on. Turned off and transparency has returned. Thanks for that.

      All betas are for developers only.

      Methods of installing betas without a developer account are not allowed to be discussed here on ModMyi.

      While it is safe in that it won't brick your device, there are bugs and many apps currently do not work. If you do not understand how to install the beta or how to downgrade if it is unstable for you, I suggest waiting till the final release.

      You will need to download the ipsw and then shift/option+click "check for update" and use the downloaded ipsw.
