iOS 7 Beta 2 IPSW Download Now Available
Apple has finally seeding iOS 7 beta 2 IPSW download. The company unveiled its latest and greatest iOS update a couple of weeks back at Worldwide Developers Conference 2013. After the announcement, the first beta of iOS 7 was seeded to developers. Early this morning iOS 7 beta 2 IPSW was initially seeded to carriers, this gave rise to speculation that perhaps release for developers was going to take place today as well. Indeed it has, developers have now been seeded the latest beta version of IOS 7.
Registered Apple Developers can now download iOS 7 beta 2 from the Developers Portal. The update will also be available as an over-the-air download for those who are already running iOS 7 beta 1 on their supported iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Beta firmware is released only to developers because not only is it unstable, it also has a lot of bugs that need to be discovered and fixed before the firmware can be publicly released.
Quite a few bugs were discovered in iOS 7 beta 1, the biggest bug plaguing that release was related to battery life. Many tests have indicated that battery life was significantly decreased after the installation of iOS 7 beta 2. Hopefully after they download iOS 7 beta 2 IPSW, developers will report that this major bug has been taken care of.
As previously mentioned, iOS 7 beta 2 IPSW download will only be officially offered to registered developers. While iOS 7 beta 2 IPSW download links will be posted by many websites and they will be available from torrents as well, do keep in mind that it is not legal to download beta firmware that Apple specifically seeds for developers.
The full changelog of iOS 7 beta 2 has not yet been posted online, we'll have it for you once it comes up. Apple is going to publicly release iOS 7 later this year, presumably in Fall. Full iOS 7 beta 2 changelog available here.
