Just few days back , Apple seeded iOS 7 Beta 4 to developers, a little later than originally planned due to a security breach at the development center. It’s now hoped that they will be back on schedule and today they releases iOS 7 beta 5 to developers .
Update : iOS 7 beta 6 is now available . You can download iOS 7 beta 6 firmware here .
The first beta left a lot to be desired as some people found it totally unusable, others suffered with severe speed issue, lagging and unexplained crashes. However, subsequent betas have fixed some of these issues, along with other bugs including problems with iCloud syncing with the Calendar App, high res images not syncing when set as a caller ID photo, and many other bug fixes.
As well as these, each new beta has seen more features added in. As time goes on Siri gets more functions, a choice of voices and more language support. The second beta finally included iPad support for iOS 7, voice memos was brought back and the iPad camera was given HDR. Safari browser has been tweaked a little, the Calendar app gets monthly views and loads of little UI changes that don’t seem to important until you get the whole picture. Yesterday, a small piece of code was spotted in Beta 4 that indicates a fingerprint sensor sometime in the future.

iOS Dev Centre Update :
At the moment, despite the Dev center being closed for more than a week, we have heard nothing to say that iOS 7 won’t be released, as expected, sometime in September, The analysts say they think it will be around about the 20th, alongside the new iPhone, possibly the 5S or the iPhone 5C. Parts of the Dev center are now up and running again.
Alongside iOS 7 many are expecting to see a new untethered jailbreak utility. This will not happen simultaneously as, once the firmware is released to the public the jailbreak will need to be thoroughly tested on it before it can be released to us. We know that a utility is being worked on so expect to see it released within perhaps a month of the iOS 7 releasing. Of course, this does depend on testing and as no-one has told us when to expect it; it’s a case of wait and see.
