    Default Apple Seeds iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks Betas to Developers


    Shortly after being announced, beta versions of Apple’s iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks is now available to developers, giving coders their first look at the new operating system ahead of a public launch which is expected for this fall.

    As for Apple’s mobile OS, the first build of iOS 7, dubbed 11A4372q was released for testing on Monday for the iPhone 5, 4S, and 4, as well as the iPod Touch. The iOS has been overhauled with new design aesthetics that add more depth through transparencies and textured designs. App icons have been flattened and new features were added, including several which were borrowed ideas from third-party apps. Also included in the new mobile OS is an enhanced Siri virtual assistant and a new Control Center that puts frequently accessed settings on a single pane.

    When it comes to the desktop, Apple announced OS X Mavericks, which the company said is the start of the next ten years of Mac. Touting over 200 new features, Mavericks will sport a tabbed interface in Finder, file tagging and enhanced multi-display support. These come along with several system and performance boosts as well as power saving measures built into the operating system.

    The developer preview of Xcode 5 was also released, which is Apple’s app-building tool chest. It comes touting new features such as automatic configuration, automatic layout, debug gauges, and more.

    Developers can download all the software via Apple’s Developer Portal.

    Its for anyone if you know how to install it. I just did and it actually looks better than IOS 4/5/6 but its slower on my iPhone4.
    I'm going to miss a few jailbreak features I love but thats what I get for installing this before the jailbreak is released.
    But as usual I guess i'll only wait a few days if that. I dont care if its tethered it still needs to be jailbroken because its an iPhone.

    No offense, but you guys are sellouts. First you cry for jailbreak teams to crack iOS and defend how desperately you need new tweaks, but then update to betas just to start the whining process all over again.

    You should not generalize... I think you can do whatever you want to do with your iPhone I guess... It's yours.

    Nope, wouldn't give you that error. What is the file name of the firmware you are using?

    People getting incompatablity errors, make sure you have the correct file for your phone model. For example, iPhone5,1_7.0_11A4372q_Restore.ipsw is for iPhone 5 Model:A1428 and iPhone5,2_7.0_11A4372q_Restore.ipsw is for iPhone 5 Model:A1429.
