Apple to release iOS 7 beta 4 today, two more betas to follow, release GM in September [Updated]


BGR reports that Apple will be seeding the fourth beta version of iOS 7 today.

Apple had seeded the first beta version of iOS 7 to developers immediately after the WWDC 2013 Keynote on June 10. Apple released the second beta version on June 24 and the third beta version on July 8th, just as BGR had reported.

Apple was widely expected to seed iOS 7 beta 4 last week, however the plans seems to have got delayed due to the security breach, which forced Apple to take its developer site offline.

However, now that Apple’s Dev Center is back online, it seems quite likely that Apple will release iOS 7 beta 4 today to prevent any further delays in the release of the software update to the public.

BGR also claims that Apple has plans to release two more betas before releasing the golden master (GM) version in September, and would indicate that Apple will launch the new iPhone around mid-to-late September.

The report notes that iOS 7 beta 4 will include “bug fixes, graphics and UI enhancements, and a couple of other updates.”

Update 1:

A MacRumors forum user has posted a link to the possible iOS 7 beta 4 for iPhone 5 which will be released later today. The link is currently inactive, it gives a “Your session has expired” error message instead of an “Access Denied” error message, which you typically get for invalid URLs.

The link reveals that the build number of iOS 7 beta 4 will be 11a4435d.

Update 2:

iOS 7 beta 2 is now available for download, check this post for more details.
