iOS 7 beta 3 still expected to release today


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? The moment the latest update goes live for download we’ll be sure to update our readers, so keep connected to Phones Review for the latest updates.

      It’s BETA! It’s not meant for everyday use. I take it you’re not a developer, go back to iOS 6.14. There’s a reason why they call it BETA!

        1. Martin "Lawliet" Amuesi says:

          Signing up for Apple dev doesn’t automatically make you a “developer”. You definitely don’t sound like you. You sound like one of those people who’d go on a forum and post “my phone isn’t working, tell me what’s wrong.”

          Probably one of those people who reviews an app on a beta OS and gives it a low rating because it crashes constantly. Not to mention, I didn’t even ask you anything. Why are you getting your knickers in a twist?

          Go back to 6.1.4 and relax.

          1. Eseng1984 says:

            wow. what sound do you want to hear from me? you calm down teddy bear. 🙂

            I just saw your previous posts. You sound very upset about everything. Why?

          2. Lawliet Hater says:

            He said he has an iPhone 4 so that would be 6.1.3 he needs to go back to. iOS 6.1.4 is for iPhone 5 only! So stop getting your knickers in a twist. Relax, and go back to cleaning the kitty litter in your grandma’s basement., you forum troll!

          3. Martin "Lawliet" Amuesi says:

            Perhaps you should look up the definition of a forum it seems to me like you clearly don’t know what it is. 6.1.4, 6.1.3, big whoop.

            While you are at it, look up for definition of a troll, you’ll see your pretty face plastered right next to it.

    1. Joe says:

      Certain apps wouldn’t work, they would just crash at any certain point. But then again, that’s the point of a “Beta”, apps need to be optimized for ios 7, but some people don’t realize that wont happen until the GM version is almost done

  1. Lugafe says:

    I notice that on beta 2 im not able to see my phone number when you click on the phone icon and then on contacts before on the top your phone number would show up. On this new version it does not show.

  2. Martin "Lawliet" Amuesi says:

    Stop complaining people. This is not an EVERYDAY OS! It’s BETA! Which means there are lots of bugs, it’s meant for DEVELOPERS! If you’re not a developer and still want to try it, don’t complain.

    You know what you’re getting yourself into.

    1. Marty "Lawliet" Amuesi says:

      Did you read the article? It was telling people to comment on this article with their problems/issues with the iOS 7 Beta.

          1. Eseng1984 says:

            He won’t calm down. It’s his time of the month. Bear with him.

  3. Hunter says:

    My iphone 4 did pretty OKAY in iOS 7 Beta 2 there were slow things but other then a FEW minor problems it was responsive but it does get slow at some points and on snapchat I don’t like the normal iOS “Keyboard” it should be the new updated keyboard and when you draw on snapchat on a picture ITS UNRESPONSIVE VERY BAD and wont respond for a long time then you mess up almost immediately.

  4. Tom says:

    Ebay kept on crashing on start up and some how became stable after uninstalling and installing and phone crashes most of the time hope they resolve this

    1. MIKE says:

      also sometimes when I turn my phone sideways, in safari for example, and then hit home screen, the time battery percent and service bars all remain on the side of the screen for some reason

  5. Andy Grasta says:

    Well, it’s a beta software.

    but what’s the use of it, if we didn’t give feedback ? let people say what’s their feedback !

    my feedback on 4s:

    -Heat problem

    -Camera app crash too much

    -lock screen clock alignment

    -most of applications crash

    -must be optimized for A5 as in A6, things are going too slow for an iPhone, i feel myself having an android 😛

    -theme options would be amazing, like black or white.

        ” 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? ” Did you read the article?

  6. Mitchell says:

    In app camera crashes the app.

    Still no integration of twitter or facebook posting.

    Folders in dock does not have animation.

    Battery issues.

  7. someone^2 says:

    After attaching a picture to a message and typing the first letter, the typing bar resets to the front of the line and starts typing there causing the first letter you typed to be at the end of the sentence.

    1. Scarydude766 says:

      Me too, it’s really annoying. Hey another bug: I am on iOS 7 beta 2 right now and while I’m typing this message, the web page scrolls up and I can’t see what I’m typing.
      P.S. I had to edit my original message ten times because of that glitch.

  8. Michael Ausley says:

    I have found multitasking and UI (User Interface) in general seems to be a bit laggy but seems to be improving with updates

  9. sushi says:

    on my phone….safari and other apps were irrspnsive…sometimes icons didn’t show up when unlocking..sometimes control centre didn’t came up..n my phone was heated

  10. Dynamitekid187 says:

    On iPhone 5 in UK. Beta 2 bugs that never experienced in beta 1. Music app crash. Wallpaper change the dock does not adjust to the new wallpaper have to restart the phone in order for it to match. Alarm clock does not work and by that I mean it does not go off when set. Notification centre drop down menu sometimes does not recognise gesture need to move the page your on like hold screen and swipe until your apps move then it will drop down the the swipe down gesture. Phone overheats. More lags in moveable background. I had no issues with beta 1 it ran fine for me. Beta 2 I would avoid. Certain apps now don’t work on beta 2 like they did on beta 1. The natwest app is one of them.

  11. Cantwaittillios7beta3 says:

    Some application such as Skype they crash as I open them and also my iPad gets stuck in Apple logo after restarting it from a power off

  12. dpacemaker says:

    I’m using an iPhone 5 and have had no issues aside from App Crashes. I have yet to have a stock App Crash, or have my phone just restart for no reason. Once the lock screen was unresponsive, but that’s it. I think this one of the stablest Betas I’ve ever demoed and I am looking forward to Beta 3 tomorrow(it’s 11:03pm here).

  13. dpacemaker says:

    Just a tip if you put an app in landscape like YouTube and then multi task it will put all the apps in that orientation that have that function. That’s pretty interesting to me.

  14. Hank Hill says:

    iPhone 4 Verizon CDMA running iOS 7 Beta 2
    (I am not a developer :/)

    With that being said, I’ve encountered tons of bugs to help start a foundation for improving the operating system.

    Let’s begin:

    -My phone will lock up entering into messages, it will just display the white inbox screen, displaying no contact names, and becoming unresponsive. It will not lock, and will sit and sort the mess out itself, which kills about a minute and 30 seconds. After it breaks free, the phone will restart itself.

    -The camera opens up slowly, and switching to video usually takes roughly 10 seconds. The newly taken photos can sosmetimes take awhile to appear in the camera roll.

    -Google Chrome is useless at this point. Crash after crash, and will sometimes lock up so severely it will cause the phone to restart.

    -The lock screen will lock up and when it finally unlocks, my service/time/battery bar will be sideways and will not reset unless locked again, and unlocked.

    With the lock screen mentioned, the clock will usually be set in the middle and it shift up into the normal position.

    -Lock screen, once again. When using a free music app (Free Music) to be specific, I love the new lock screen displaying my music bar to control the audio, and previous/next song. But it takes the clock away completely. At the top, it will just display [ -/- -/-] where the time should be.

    -The new tool bar that is brought up from the pulling the bottom, is really hard to do with an Otterbox case. Without one on, it is easy to access.

    -The new notification bar is cluttered in my personal opinion. The old one is alot neater, and simpler to understand.

    -The old iOS 6 keyboard is still brought up in both Chrome and Safari to do searches.

    That’s all I can come up with that I remember off hand, but I do have some suggestions to make the iOS alot more customizable;

    -Let us change the messaging theme (background and keyboard) colors from white to black. I personally despise the awful blinding white scheme. Same way for the Photo albums. Too much white, and seems too feminism. The keyboard for the spotlight search is more suitable for my taste.

    -If we could arrange the new swipe methods in corralation with the different menus, let me demonstrate, the Notification bar is activated by pulling the top down. The new tool bar is activated by pulling the bottom up… why not be able to switch them around?

    -ALSO with the new “double click” Home button method for deleting backgrounded apps, please add back the music tool bar, and other settings. I know its been implemented in the new drag up tool bar, but why not have it in both, for even more ease of use?

    -Let us be able to choose our desired iOS app designs. I hate the flat looking iOS 7 icons. It’s too cartoony, and less professional than iOS 6 and below.

    Same way with the Service circles. I prefer the bars.

    With iOS 7 as it is, I can see it having potential. But add in more immerse customization, and it will be perfect. User friendly-ness is the best medicine for the cell phone market.

    Cheers mates

    1. iOS Developer says:

      Answer to bugs: don’t use an iPhone 4. It may be officially supported, but just as you can see, it is on it’s way out – it is the oldest supported iPhone, now…

      Specifically, apps not having the new keyboard makes perfect sense. Developers aren’t allowed to update their apps until iOS 7 is actually released, and the keyboard is programmed into the app. Therefore, they will not have the new ones until the official iOS is released in fall. Also, for any of the crashes in apps, it is the same reason: they are not updated for iOS 7, yet, and cannot be under Apple regulations until the official version is released.

      1. Hank Hill says:

        If it’s supported, people are going to use it. So it needs to be tested just like any other supported device.

        I understand the keyboard not being updated with Chrome, but Safari is not a third party app.

        Only app I mentioned crashing that was third party was Chrome, all the others I mentioned were Apple apps.

        The bugs also vary with each device, the iPhone 5s are having heating issues, that is an issue I have not encountered with the iPhone 4.

        As I previously stated, along with the articles titled suggestion; I’m only listing bugs to help the developers pin point errors and correct them. I’m not bashing on them whatsoever.

  15. Nate C says:

    Not really a bug, more of a gripe… I hate that there’s no clock on the lock screen while music is playing. Besides that, it’s been a pretty amazing beta. Sure there have been bugs and crashes, but at this point it’s pretty amazing how few there really are considering we’re only in Beta 2. If you actually expect an early beta to be as stable as a final release, you’re a moron.

    1. Blake Lindsey says:

      I agree with you my phone frequently crashes but i dont really mind because i know that it is an early beta not the final release

  16. Just me says:

    Lots of bugs in beta 2. I’m sure most of them have been mentioned. I’m running it on an iPhone 5 and it is really slow. I wish they would add a timer on the camera! Also I found that the small space bar when searching the Internet is quite frustrating because I keep hitting the “.com” key.

    1. Damian W says:

      True about .com and space bar. Very annoying. I can not get used to it.

      My iPhone 5 is super fast but crashes and resprings on a regular basis. However it does not bug me so much becasue iPhone 5 after all works fast on iOS 7. Even the respring time takes about 5 sec only.

  17. MCMD says:

    the keyboard in safari is annoying and it usually takes me four or five tries to get the control center to come up. Other things i could care less about since it’s still a beta.
    iPhone 4S

  18. Bella says:

    Obviously, it’s a beta. That’s the reason it’s released to us, for us to test it out and see how it’s operating. I am running the beta on an iPhone 4S. So, the glitches I’ve found and also reported are:
    – keyboard receptiveness — slow
    – phone getting very hot as mentioned above
    – many apps crashing (Google Drive, Camera, Photos, Mail, Music, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram to name a few)
    – Control Centre and Notifications bars are slow/do not work
    – battery drains rapidly (some people I know have not had this problems while others including myself have)
    – phone freezes and spontaneously powers down
    – constantly being asked to type in my iCloud password again and again

    Those are the glitches I’ve found to be very noticeable in the beta. Hopefully, these will all be fixed with time and the official release will have solved these problems. Maybe beta 3 will even have some of these repaired. Otherwise, I do like the look and how everything works. It’s very useful for me. Once all of the glitches are fixed, it will be, in my opinion, the best system Apple will have released. i would love for there to be a clock on the home screen, more options for backgrounds already on the phone (dynamics mostly), more alert tones and easier layout for keyboard (.com and spacebar are too close together). These were all of the suggestions/reports I had to give back.

      1. marto says:

        WTF! She needs a new phone because beta 2 has glitches. The 4s is pretty good device even though it can’t run beta 2 smooth which is understandable.

      2. Dean Turetsky says:

        No– Vanessa,
        Beta means it is beta…
        It will crash, be unresponsive, and suck generally until perfected.
        It reflects nothing on the phone other than that the OS is targeted at newer models.

        1. Martin "Lawliet" Amuesi says:

          I’m pretty sure it will suck more on older models. Must be you and only you because I haven’t had most of then issues you mention.

          I don’t get asked iCloud password, my phone rarely shutdown, apps don’t crash, power doesn’t drain, control center works just fine, keyboard is nice and fast, phone does not get hot and only a couple of my apps crash, most of the time they work just fine.

          So you see, time to get a new iPhone. One that can actually handle iOS 7. It’s beta, sure it will crash and such, but it’s certainly not an alpha build. So it should work better than what you’re describing.

  19. gelo says:

    i think the time to release beta 3 is July 8, 12am in Cupertino and the current time in Cupertino is 9:52 PM
    Sunday, July 7, 2013 (PDT)Time in Cupertino, CA, USA

    let’s just wait for a few more hours :)) hoping that the “inside” rumors are true! ^.^

  20. gelo says:

    hahaha it’s already july 8 1:04pm UTC+8 (philippine time). I can’t wait for iOS7 beta 3. I’m gonna stay up til 12mn to download the beta update ^_^

  21. Kenneth says:

    What is this nonsense? Cinderella’s beta has to come at midnight? I have never seen a update go up at night, let alone 12 AM. These people work and go home hopefully just like you do. Do not expect update to around 10 AM to 12PM PST. Sorry to burst some our your impatient bubbles xD. (Example- iOS 7 Beta 2 came along around about 11 AM)

    1. Alaattin Matar says:

      What’s app never crashed on my iPhone 5, Skype does crash only when I go to chats, but I can go through my contacts and even call them!

  22. Dean Turetsky says:

    Problems with 4S running IOS7… all expected. It’s a beta. That being said:
    Camera app crashes, HDR often causes crashing as well, Parallax uses CPU to the point that the 4S is exhausted and quits apps incessantly, attaching photos and integrated uploading of photos and videos within any application crashes the app almost consistently, upon loading the dialer screen, it is unusable for 3-5 seconds and sometimes longer where it behaves almost as if it is in a call and becomes green-tinged and unusable… Battery life seems to be a problem at some points even when quitting apps so that 1-2 apps max are running at a time. Lockscreen is buggy and has a delay. UI needs improvement overall, but THIS IS A BETA GUYS HOLY MOTHER OF CHRIST.

    DON’T download a beta if all you plan to do is complain about it. Betas are basically released for two reasons:

    1) active sdk testing for new OS developers,


    2) finding bugs, reporting them/allowing data to be collected on battery life, application performance, perfecting a baseline for the more complicated final product.

    Appreciate that apple even shares its beta with developers, especially if you aren’t one and are just upgrading your os for the hell of it.

  23. Chris K says:

    I’ve noticed many of the bugs mentioned, but also, for the first time yesterday, my phone was in the music app and I tried to fast forward through a song and it just got stuck and kept skipping even when i moved songs forward and backward and exited the app. I had to power down and so on to get it to cooperate. The screen also completely become touch-less the other night for some reason. Grrrr.

  24. Abarlowe says:

    My absolute biggest problem with the actual design is that the calendar no longer has the dots on the month view, I found that a very easy way to see when I’m busy and I could just screen shot it and send it to tell someone when I’m free. I understand all the bugs are to be expected, and the design is great, but this is a fairly significant functionality decrease to me.t

    1. Anon says:

      Agreed – I miss this functionality too. Here’s hoping that it’s only a temporary thing and will be put back in the release version.

  25. Vasil Grancharov says:

    I have been using beta 2 on my iPhone 5 since launch day. I first intendet to just try it and revert back to 6.1.4 but I have expirienced not that many problems for a beta. I should say that I have been using the phone every day as my main deivice. Third-party apps that crashed for me are IMDB, HBO GO and SKYPE. All other apps that I am using (mostly social and media) are working fine. The phone itself rebooted once in a while in 2 days so its not that big of a problem. I find the battery life the same as it is with 6.1.4. I love some of the new features and that’s why I don’t want to downgrade to 6.1.4. The new multitasking is gorgeous and I find myself using the new launch bar (the one that you swipe form the bottom) quite often. I also love the fact that you can have as much apps in your folders as you want.

    1. siddhuncle says:

      The battery life is most certainly not the same. It drains 2-5% every 10 minutes when you’re not using the phone. Even with all extraneous settings turned off, I manage to get pathetic battery life. Hoping for a fix in beta 3.

      1. Vasil Grancharov says:

        Well I am not sure what is the reason for that battery drain on your phone. One possible reason is that I am not on LTE network. I definitely haven’t expirienced that problem. I can get almost 2 days with moderate to no use and almost full day with heavy use.

        1. nL_Doctor says:

          After viewing pictures messages sometimes the names of my contacts overlap and I have to close the Messaging app out. Skype does seem to crash a lot. Haven’t had any Echofon or Instagram problems at all in Beta 2. **I haven’t had any battery issues either and I keep my LTE on.**

      2. Alaattin Matar says:

        Battery was never a problem to me on iPhone 5 iOS 7 betas, neither one of them, in fact I managed to run the phone for over 3 hours with less than 5% battery life!!

  26. Ivan says:

    My ipad 3 has ios 7 beta 2 I love it besides the frequent crashes don’t wanna downgrade back to ios 6 can’t wait for update live very close to Cupertino CA

  27. Mcdoublesauce says:

    Quick toggles doesnt respond til the third or fourth swipe.
    Siri works, sometimes
    Had to do a reset, was stuck on the lockscreen. No swip gesture worked. Non responsive
    Basically all that ive noticed.

  28. Jacob Sever says:

    Screen share doesn’t work with the lightning AV adapter. It worked on beta 1, but not beta 2. Hoping it gets fixed so I can continue to stream True Blood from my phone to my tv.

        1. intest says:

          sources have said that the carriers are getting it tomorrow meaning that developers due too. But who knows how reliable those sources really are.

  29. Pirate Jim says:

    Using beta 2 on iPhone 4 and iPad 2. The iPhone 4 gets hot, iTunes radio quits after being used for over an hour, down cast app will quit on its own, the only way to fix it is to do a hard reboot. On the iPad 2, plants vs zombies won’t work and neither will bejewelled, had no issue with beta 1 to play these games.

    1. Kody Khairandish says:

      have it on iphone 4
      same problems and more!
      mine looks like it runs out of ram or something in midst of stuff like web browsing…
      it crashes out of the app and I have to restart using the power and home button to give a very temporarily fix!
      hope this gets fixed with this beta.

  30. Mr13r4n says:

    Finally ios 7 beta 3 is available on setting software update ….

    Im w8ng for the moment to say that 😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜

  31. BAzzarN says:

    skype crashes, if you open a folder and then dubble click the home button while the folder is open you cannot return to the home page unless you restart the phone, apps crashing, phone gets hot, laggy interface, overlapping status bar ( on some apps, cannot shoot video if you acces the camera through the lock screen etc..,

          1. supertramp says:

            its 9:49am and still no update 🙁 will it be like beta 2 vie system update on the iphone 5 its self or itunes?

          2. Philip Danger Kubicki says:

            Dude, Just wait, What on earth is wrong with some people, IT WILL BE OUT WHEN ITS READY, asking what specific second isn’t going to make it any faster, If anything your teasing yourself, We are in the UK, so we get everything last, Come back tomorrow as the apple servers will get overloaded today.

            This is only a beta & wont be avalible to you or me!
            THIS IS FOR DEVELOPERS ONLY, you wont be getting it today

          3. Philip Danger Kubicki says:

            It tells you all this in the article:

            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 means YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE UPDATING TO IOS 7 at any point today, please people, get this in your thick little heads.

          1. JanJair Caranza says:

            I’m not a developer.. but I have the lates ios 7 beta released 🙂 and installed in my iphone 4

          1. mr13r4n says:

            apple patched the UDID registration in new beta…so its not gona be easy

      1. JanJair Caranza says:

        you don’t need an ios 7 beta 1 you can jump from latest firmware which is ios 6.1.3 and 6.1.4 on iphone 5 then shift + click UPDATE then select ios 7 beta 2 or 3 ipsw!

  32. Developer says:

    Bunch of losers. This is for us developers not people who want to look cool I front of tteir mates by showing them an unfinished IOS. Pathetic

    1. Philip Danger Kubicki says:

      There is not going to be a 6.1.4 Jailbreak, the Jailbreak teams have already confirmed that they are missing it out and going straight for IOS 7.

  33. Sebvs says:

    Anyone know if ios7 can make your phone defective? My 4S became Defective and I had to get a new one -.- Phone kept pressing buttons by itself and lock screen wouldn’t slide to unlock. Same problem anyone?

          1. Sebvs says:

            Oh lol ill try not to make that mistake again on this new phone cx thanks dude!

      1. JanJair Caranza says:

        you need to be in the latest firmware.. ios 6.1.3 for older devices.. and 6.1.4 in iphone 5 then shift click UPDATE button on itunes then click the ios 7 firmware! it would bypass all

          1. Sebvs says:

            Obviously not if everyone has it? Pretty sure everyone here is not a Dev. Duh. Quit trying to start problems and go back to playing World of Warcraft you nerd.

          2. Philip Danger Kubicki says:

            Your mum isn’t online so I will give it a miss, Shes the bottom biatch guild leader.

    1. Leon K. says:

      Maybe it will work again if you hold the home button+the lock button(on top of the iphone) together, untill the screen turns black. Then the apple logo will be on the screen. And your Iphone turns on again. I think the problems will be solved then. If not, hold the home button+ lock button again, but now like 30 seconds, until the iphone enters the restore mode. Your device now asks you to connect your Iphone to itunes, en then you can restore your Iphone. Then you will have the 6.1.3 iPhone version back. Later you can put the 7.0 back to the iPhone, if you want.

    2. wizwiththebone says:

      It does that when you have a system notification on the screen and closethe phone without dismissing it then the screen becomes unresponsive e

  34. ethan says:

    if you got beta 1 and 2 by buying it or buy torrents you count as a dev, once beta 3 comes out all you have to do is go to General and check for updates and it should be there WHEN IT COMES OUT! if you all ready got beta 2 we all should be good to go and people should be so harsh and calling other stupid with false info and cant back it up -__-

      Hi. This is because the popup “20/10% battery left” comes up and “locks” the screen but it’s immiatley covered by the lock screen itself. The screen is still “locked” and waiting for you to click OK on the popup. But you can’t since it’s hidden. Not really a solution but at least you know why it haves that way and a dev might see this.

  35. AnnabellaHeidi says:

    Re-starts a few times a day, battery is poorer, instagram doesnt work, barclays doesnt work (i know, beta…), the time moves around the lock screen – realises its wrong and jumps back to where its meant to be! Good update though

    1. Jack says:

      People don’t tend to pay for iOS Betas; they get free access to them as part of having a developer license. The non-developers are admittedly idiots though. (Besides, it’s only £60 for a year’s access to App Store publishing and potentially a high-profit income source)

          1. tom says:


          1. Ben says:

            Figures. I’m in New England soo… Probably won’t see it til later today. Have you noticed anything different on the beta?

          2. Andrew J says:

            as I said, i’m downloading at the moment…. Wait… its done…. let me check…….

  36. Luke says:

    I’m running ios 7 beta 2 on my iphone 4s. Aside from a few apps crashing daily and the phone resetting itself a few times a day, I don’t have any other problems with it. Hoping beta 3 will fix some of these issues but overall I am extremely satisfied with ios 7 and glad I updated to it before it’s official release.

    1. The Real Lebron says:

      Yea, same here. Aside from a few minor glitches every once and a while, it runs pretty smooth. All my contacts, music, apps, and pretty much else synced after a little time using iCloud. And so far all the apps I have ran, some with a fews bugs of course. Really no big complaints with its functionality.

  37. sherwills says:

    I’m using iphone 4s and the most common crashes for me is when an app that’s already opened will access the camera. This is prevalent in Instagram, Yelp or sometimes even just by simply opening the Camera app.

    1. Freddie John Millman says:

      Beta 2 seems to have the camera causing crashes on the iPhone 4S, Switching mine off and then on seems to solve it at the moment. Hopefully Beta 3 will fix this though.

  38. Neil says:

    the main problem i have is when my battery reaches 15% or less on the iphone 5, the touch screen stops responding and will not allow me to unlock the phone, bar that the only problem i see when when opening apps like phone or facebook the phone will randomly restart, not all the time just one in a blue moon, and it is a fast resart so no real problems

    1. Freddie John Millman says:

      What you can do at the moment to fix this for a short period of time is to switch your iPhone off and switch back on. For some reason this kicks everything back into gear.

    2. Apple says:

      Ik that problem. When your phone hits 20% battery a 20% battery notification will come up on your phone. If your on the lock screen the phone will then correct it’s self and remove the notification but it’s still there. You need to charge your phone over 20%

  39. Karoline says:

    I am in London, is it actually going to come out today? Because that’s the only reason I just bought an iPhone 5 and the lady in store said that it was gonna be out in September with a new iPhone.. But I hope it’s today!

    1. Jamie says:

      IOS 7 is out in the autumn of this year, it is currently going through beta testing by apple and anyone that has a developers account can download the test version of IOS 7 beta 3, PLEASE do not download if you are intending to use as your main phone and the software is still buggy. if you wanted the finished version you should have waited to buy you iPhone later in the year!

  40. Andrew says:

    I have experienced the same as Neil on both my verizon iphone 5 work phone and ATT iphone 5 personal phone. I can’t swipe to unlock or do anything at all when my phone would drop to around 10-15%. Even siri would not work. She would say she is unavailable.

  41. oziihan says:

    in California, the time is 5:32 a.m. Come on guys you cannot expect to they will release the beta 3 that time. People need to sleep. I think it’ll be released next in 6-7 hours.

  42. highbreak says:

    IOS7 beta 2 battery bad accuracy indicator, phone dies off when it still showing 8%.
    Uses more RAM space, it reboot automatically every time when RAM run out of memory.
    Screen freeze occasionally and require hard reboot.

  43. Apple inc says:

    So finally ios 7 beta 3 is available for download for develpors in usa.
    Check software updates in settings>General. You need to have UDID registration for your phone or else you are not able to update. Apple patched the latest beta so guys who didnt have valid UDID registration will not be able to update. Thanks

          1. Pierre COUPIN says:

            I got my dev account too, with my UDID registered ofc.

            but nothing for now via OTA

          2. Apple inc says:

            Apple totally patched the new beta. User who over write ios 7 on ios 6 for bypassing UDID registration will not gona get the beta 3.

          3. Alex Amador says:

            I have a developers account and can register devices for use with ios 7. Contact me if your interested 714-307-8644

  44. SK says:

    Iphone 5 with iOS 7 Beta 2 .. working fine although with few bugs and crashes (Once a day atleast) Skype not working and few other apps not supporting the beta version.. crashed when tried to mirror screen with Apple tv 3rd generation.. need to close and restart some applications to make them work properly again such as mail, photos, call menu, contacts etc… almost all are buggy.. hopefully iOS 7 beta 3 will be more smooth..

  45. Rob Hanson says:

    The most glaring crash I have noted on my ipad 3 running beta 2 is the settings app crashes whenever the time is switched from auto to manual entry but not vice versa. Several apps I use crash as well but this is expected since it is a beta but those apps are pulse and weather channel. The ap app works but the display is very buggy. Again these apps have not been updated to iOS 7 so this is expected.

  46. Alex Amador says:

    Hello Friends my name is alex. I recently purchased A developers account due to the high rage of IOS 7. I have 99 slots left for People who also want in. Please contact me and i will respond immediately. 714-307-8644

  47. Sloane says:

    adjusting the clock leads to some bad crashes including eventually totally killing the OS to the point where you need to restore everything.

  48. Shahrooz Fairooz says:

    Most of the people here are forgetting the fact that it will be released today and its still not released.

    When Apple releases the beta, it will be available “world wide at once”.

    There are no separate dates or times for any other countries as this is a software to be distributed, and not a hardware to be shipped, so its going to be on www (world wide web) “all at once”.

    Make sure to check out your timings because Apple’s headquarters is located in California UTC/GMT. So everyone is going to be ahead of time unless you live in Cali.

    Lets hope they put in some great futures and fix issues in beta 3!

        1. Raj says:

          Think shorter?? lol OK. The IQ level is quite revealing and frankly unsettling! What’s your excuse for vicariously ineccessant use of comma symbol? Way to take your country’s name down with you. Do you even understand what “poor punctuation marks” means?

  49. luc says:

    iphone 5 (ios 7)

    – some unexpected crashes when I put the iphone to sleep (after restart it worked fine again)
    – sometimes when turning the iphone the top section with battery level etc. would not turn with the screen (after sleep or restart fine gain)
    – I do have the feeling that the battery dosn’t last as long as with the previous ios 6.1.4

    some general remarks:

    – I do like the ios 7 very much but have troubles with the size and the strength of the font. I made it as large as possible (which is unpractical) and the color of the font is still not a strong black but greyish. for people with weak eyes there should be more options regarding the font.
    – in the previous version I found the deleting of emails and messages more practical

      1. Shawn says:

        You can’t brick an iPhone… It has DFU mode to prevent that.. If you know what you’re doing it’s an easy fix. I went from Beta 1 to Beta 2 with no issues and no bricking… If you know what you’re doing and aren’t just some noob trying to look cool nothing will happen

          1. Minesh says:

            You don’t need to register a UDID.. I’ve been running beta 1 and updated OTA to beta 2 without registering my UDID. My iPhone 5 is running with the same “bugs” as yours.

        1. Rhinda says:

          Indeed! I just make sure you back up before updating, and then you can easily restore back to 6.1.3 if something stuffs up in iOS7 beta.

          1. Shawn says:

            Of course back up lol.. I love iOS 7. Been waiting patiently for Beta 3. Backed my phone up this morning before I left for work. Have the 6.1.3 and 7 Beta 2 sitting on my desktop lol. Ready to get the bugs worked. So far only issues I’m having is the camera crashing and some apps randomly crashing when it seems to be processing more. Besides that I love it

          2. Rhinda says:

            Agreed haha, can’t wait for the official full release! (which is a while away, but still we get to see how it will be)

      2. locolol says:

        you guys are so full of sh***t. you only need to update your iphone to get IOS7 and then you are good to go. you will get the OTA updates. and if something goes wrong you yus put you Iphone in DFU and restore.. Iphones dont brake..

    1. Pierre COUPIN says:

      Do you think apple is so stupid?

      really not, the beta is only for dev. you need to register your UDID to make iOS 7 beta fully working .

    2. Daniel Jansson says:

      Try doing a restore instead of update when installing iOS7 (which is preferable in any case) without UDID registered. Then smile when the beta wants to activate itself.

          1. tree says:

            and them bust your screen and cry about it because you didn’t register your phone lol

          2. Rhinda says:

            LOL! How the heck do you bust your screen? All you do is put it into DFU mode and restore. My warranty has expired months ago…

  50. Supa says:

    I have been beta testing IOS7 and for the most part I like it even though it’s buggy however that’s expected.

    I have two main frustrations with the OS:

    1. when unlocking the phone with a password, it often messes up and forgets a digit that I’ve entered

    2. When trying to google something in Safari, the space key has been split in half so that “space” is on the left hand side and “.com” is on the right hand side. I often accidently hit “.com” rather then space

  51. Patryk says:

    you can bypass the passcode in beta 2.

    you must block your iphone for 60minutes than you must do a hard reset (home button and power button at the same time) than when you are on the lock screen you must call the SOS (112) than wait an end the call than you can type unlimited times the passcode (tested on the iphone 4/4s and 5)

    Good Luck 😀

  52. JBud says:

    Things that will hopefully be fixed come beta 3:

    Random crashes when switching between apps, or unlocking the phone.

    Base apps, such as messages, and phone, will have errors from scrolling causing the interface to shift upwards against the status bar, (this could also be caused by the parallax effect while opening the app).

    Some apps, (bejeweled and bejeweled blitz for example), will not launch.

    Not a bug, but I believe the lock screen needs to show a clock while music is playing.

  53. Dave says:

    Apple usually releases the “beta” OS worldwide at the same time. In the UK it comes out around 6pm / 10am Cupertino. At this time Beta 3 of iOS 7 is NOT available so ignore those that say they have it. 3 more hours or so (if they choose to release today)

  54. Ben says:

    The downloading on iPads and the texting app. I am still having a movie download that.Has been going since Friday it says processing and I have high speed Internet

  55. Gusto jr says:

    I offer free udid!! Well to be honest it is free 😉 you don’t need udid just youtube ios 7 and there’s videos, I’ve done it on 5 different phones on 2 different computers, 5/5 times it worked with no problem at all so don’t buy these guys udi

          1. brian says:

            the thing is it won’t let you to UPDATE youre ios 7 beta 2, OTA you need to download it, and do step by step all over again?

  56. Alex Amador says:

    I have a developers account and can register devices for use with IOS 7 AND IOS 8 next year . Contact me if your interested 714-307-8644

  57. Pablo Agustín Silva says:

    problems: itunes match cover art, podcast app not working at all, lock screen tilts with movement, not in a smooth way, whatsapp keyboard hide

    Just installed b3 over wifi, Skype doesn’t crash anymore! I’m glad they replaced the Safari icon with something that wasn’t drawn by an intern.

  59. Kasper Karr says:

    I left the laundry mat about 10 minutes ago. While there I held the door open for three different black people. One thanked me while the other two didn’t even make eye contact. This is mainly a black trend I’ve personally noticed in my life. What’s the deal?

  60. Pöv Välëñtinê says:

    Now me on the IOS 7 Beta 2

  63. Dev says:

    For God’s sake, everyone calm down. Most of you aren’t even developers anyway.

    Apple is in California, which is on Pacific Time. It’s still early there. They’ll probably release it at 9AM, so at the start of, or during their business day. So just relax.

  64. Hey Gnomo says:

    Problema no iPhone 5 com o iOS 7 Beta 2 quando vou deletar um estado na previsão do tempo em formato lista, ele simplesmente fecha o app e volta para a tela de inicio. e sem falar que alguns apps ele não consegui executar e fecha, e outros ele não consegui fazer login na conta do usuário.

  70. tgregory7 says:

    With Beta 2 it was released at exactly 12:00 CST, which would be 10:00 PST. So that being said, if Apple goes along with what they have done in the past, it will be out very shortly! (o:

        1. Dexter says:

          surly if you had some common sense you’d google it and it would bring back positive results

          get of the internet and go play with some toy cars

      1. tgregory7 says:

        they didn’t give a release date for Beta 2 either. However, the normal time line for Beta 2 to Beta 3 is 15.5 days. That would put it coming out on Wednesday. I am with everyone else though, I do hope they push it today!

    1. Mark Murphy says:

      It is already out for the carriers, ios 7 beta 3. Just at sprint store in Phoenix, AZ . They had it available at 8:00am pst. Should be out to devs soon to developers. please stop prividing false rumors without any shed of proof.

    1. Mark Murphy says:

      It is coming today. Sprint techs got the OTA this morning at 8am for carrier testing. Apple is pushing the beta 3 via ota at 10amish pst. It has been reported that apple will or in this case already has beta 3 to carriers for testing and signal software tweaks. Stop spreading false info

  73. tgregory7 says:

    Apple is planning to release the third beta version of iOS 7 to its carrier partners on Monday, July 8, with seeding to registered developers expected on the same day.
    BGR has been informed by trusted sources that iOS 7 beta 3 is currently scheduled to be made available to carriers for testing on July 8th. These are the same sources who accurately foretold the release timing of Apple’s last iOS 7 beta, and just like iOS 7 beta 2, it is likely that the new software will be released to developers on the same day it reaches carriers.
