The iOS 7 beta program is meant for developers to test their apps and report bugs with the OS, if any. That, however, doesn’t stop others from installing the OS on their own devices out of curiosity.
One Apple Premium Reseller in India is taking things to a whole new level by selling the iPhone 5 with iOS 7 beta installed, in an attempt to get people to buy the device from its store rather than other retailers.
iCentre Kilpauk, the premium reseller, promises a free iOS 7 upgrade to iPhone 5 buyers, and for those who already own one, a $20 upgrade. Apple’s known to crack down on UDID registration services that give access to developer betas for a few dollars, and it won’t be too pleased with one of its premium resellers selling the iPhone with an unstable OS that could lead to a bad experience for the end-user.
iCentre made announcements of these “promotions” on its Facebook page, but has since deleted these posts for obvious reasons. The folks at techzei.com managed to screenshot these posts, one of which we’ve embedded below.
We imagine iCentre won’t be an Authorised Reseller of Apple products for long.
