Apple has just made the iOS 7 beta 3 IPSW download links available to registered developers. Those who are registered in the company's iOS developer program can now get the iOS 7 beta 3 IPSW links through the developers' portal. The latest beta has been seeded exactly two weeks after the company seeded iOS 7 beta 2 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to developers.
The company seems to be following a pretty strict routine for iOS beta release. After the first beta of iOS 7 was seeded the day after Worldwide Developers Conference 2013, Apple released the second beta exactly two weeks after that. With the second beta being in the hands of developers for just two weeks, the Cupertino outfit has now seeded iOS 7 beta 3 IPSW for all supported devices. At this point in time no changelog has been posted, but we can expect the usual slew of bug fixes as well as performance improvements.
Once we get iOS 7 beta 3 IPSW downloaded and set up on our devices, only then it will be clear if any major updates have been made. iOS 7 beta 2 was a major update in its own right primarily because it finally brought support for iOS 7 on iPad and iPad mini. There have been rumors that perhaps we might see some design and user interface changes in the third beta of Apple's latest and greatest iOS platform update.
Unveiled last month at WWDC 2013, iOS 7 is the biggest update that Apple had made to its mobile platform ever since it first debuted with the original iPhone back in 2007. They have completely redesigned the user interface and have added flat elements, giving it an overall sleek and modern look. By now most readers will be anxious to get iOS 7 beta 3 IPSW download links, the fact of the matter is that Apple does not release beta firmware for the public. That's because it is unstable and developers first need to get their apps ready for it as well as discover any bugs that might be present. You will be able to find iOS 7 beta 3 IPSW download links through various unofficial sources online, but do keep in mind that installation of this firmware without being a registered developer is illegal. Apple does take action against those sources who offer beta firmware for public installation.
Nevertheless, we'll get our hands on the iOS 7 beta 3 IPSW and will let you know about all of the changes that the company has made in the latest build of iOS 7.
UPDATE: Full iOS 7 beta 3 changelog posted.
