iPad iOS 7 Download

When iOS 7 was finally announced, it was to a mixture of cheers and jeers.  While some love the new look, others are not overly fond of it. It does pack a lot of new features, although many of these are quite similar to current jailbreak tweaks.

One question on all lips concerns the untethered jailbreak utility. In short, yes there is one. You can download iOS 7 for iPad via iTunes, OTA or by downloading the IPSW. See our tutorial on how to carry out all of these methods.

iOS 7 Installation Method 1 – OTA :

The first one is the OTA method which doesn’t require a pc or a mac to install iOS 7

  1. Open Settings
  2. Tap General
  3. Tap Software Update
  4. Your device will now check for the updated firmware, just tap on Download and Install
  5. Your device will restart on the new beta firmware when the install is complete.

OTA or Over The Air Downloads are generally smaller in size since they only update the essential changes to the existing firmware . Where a full ipsw file can be upto the size of 1.5 Gigabyte , an OTA can be around 250 MegaByte .

iOS 7 Installation Method 2 – iTunes :

You can also go down the IPSW and iTunes route .

  1. Download the relevant iOS 7 IPSW
  2. Connect your computer and iPad and open iTunes
  3. Go into Device Summary [Image of iPhone used for illustration purpose only . Completely applicable for iPad’s ]itunes update iphone

  1. I downloaded the .dmg for the iPad iOS 7 Beta 4 and also installed the 7Zip program, I do not see the .IPSW in 7Zip…perhaps I did something wrong, running Win8 on my machine.

      1. So once I have unzipped the HFS file from there I do the restore the same way as always, shift click then select the file correct? Sorry this is not the way that I am accustomed to doing this I usually have the file extension .IPSW

  2. iPad mini (Model A1432) – Link http://jbmodo.com/165Pad9 is not working

    the computer say:

    The file you are trying to download is no longer available.
    This could be due to the following reasons:
    The file has been removed because of a ToS/AUP violation.
    Invalid URL -- the link you are trying to access does not exist
    The file has been deleted by the user.
