Not so long back it was possible for non-developers to download the iOS 7 betas and activate their iDevices to work on the new firmware. This was due to a glitch between iTunes and Apple’s activation servers. Apple has now fixed this error meaning that non-developers now cannot activate iOS 7 betas without having their UDID registered. The purpose of this article is to give you an all-in-one guide to downloading and installing iOS 7 beta and how to activate it legally.
