Apple iOS 7 beta 6 released to repair iTunes bug
Apple released iOS 7 beta 6 on Thursday, making the latest version of its new mobile OS build available OTA to those who have been beta testing iOS 7. It can also be downloaded via Apple's Developer Center website. There is some speculation that the update was rushed out to take care of a bug that has been afflicting those testing the previous version of the OS. Earlier rumors suggested that iOS 7 beta 6 would be released next week, which would have been two weeks after the release of iOS 7 beta 5. And since Apple usually releases new iOS betas on Monday mornings, the release today seems rushed and a bit out of sorts for the Cupertino based manufacturer.

If you're keeping score, the newly released iOS build weighs in at a rather lightweight 13.5MB and is build number 11A4449d. Just last week, iOS 7 beta 5 was launched with a build number of 11A4449a. Later on Thursday, Apple did confirm that the beta was rushed out to fix an "issue with iTunes in the Cloud, where some purchases may download or play unexpected items."

Apple will most likely release iOS 7 some time in the fourth quarter, most likely just days before the next iteration of the Apple iPhone is launched. With iOS 7, Apple's Jony Ive revamped the UI to get rid of the bright glossy colors and replace them with flat pastels. In addition, the skeumorphic icons are now gone. Introduced at WWDC this past June, iOS 7 also includes some new features for users of Apple's mobile devices.

Gold master, then consumer release. Money to be taken.

The iPad (3rd gen at least) version of iOS7 is in no way shape or form ready for release. Unless beta 7 fixes a whole host of UI issues and bugs then i can't see it being released at the same time as the iPhone version. Maybe in October for the new 5th gen iPad?

Readily agree. I honestly like iOS7 much better than iOS6 but it is still rather slow and buggy/glitchy. i have to manually power off and back on sometimes when I pinch to the homescreen because there's a massive glitch where it will do nothing but show your wallpaper (even after unlocking the lock screen).
