This post is just a quick reminder for our readers waiting on iOS 7 beta 3, which is due to release today at some point. We haven’t seen any news pointing to any other date, so July 8 should be the day you can download iOS 7 beta 3 if you are a developer. This information is widely reported from so-called insiders, so take it as a rumor but a solid one at that.
We touched on some crashing problems when using iOS 7 beta 2 on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, then followed up with an article updating our readers on problems experienced by our in house developer. This included iOS 7 beta 2 causing the iPhone 5 and 4S to get hot, although we noted the iPhone 5 didn’t have overheating issues previously.
Expect iOS 7 beta 3 to have bugs and problems – it is good to remember that anyone using an iOS 7 beta on their iPad, iPhone 5, 4S or iPhone 4 should expect problems thanks to the software still being in an early testing phase.
We have seen a number of people state “a very buggy OS by Apple”, but these people are missing the point of a beta. It won’t be perfect, and in fact you can still expect some problems when iOS 7 beta 3 arrives later today. We don’t have a release time just yet, and in fact the launch of beta 3 hasn’t even been officially confirmed, so this is entirely based on insider rumor.
What problems have you found that could do with a fix in iOS 7 beta 3? Leave a comment below, and let us know if these issues are found on an iPhone 5, 4S or another Apple device?
