Apple reportedly testing iOS 7.0.1, iOS 7.0.2 and iOS 7.1


While we eagerly wait for Apple to release iOS 7 on September 18, Apple is reportedly already testing iOS 7.0.1, iOS 7.0.2 and iOS 7.1.

9to5Mac reports that based on the web logs of their website, Apple employees are actively testing new versions of iOS 7.

This doesn’t come as a surprise as Apple typically releases a software update to fix the bugs shortly after releasing a major update.

While we cannot absolutely confirm that these tests are occurring inside Apple, it seems likely based on the cities in which these operating systems are being tested. Apple’s headquarters is in Cupertino, California, and we are seeing these views from these unreleased operating systems from both Cupertino and surrounding areas.

While someone could easily manipulate the browser user agent, it is very likely that Apple is already internally testing software updates for iOS 7. The web logs indicate that Apple may release two minor versions of iOS 7 to fix the bugs.

It is also possible that Apple will release iOS 7.1 along with new iPad hardware, which is expected to be unveiled in October – November timeframe.

This could delay the launch of iOS 7 jailbreak, which seems to be making good progress. Jailbreak developers tend to wait for a major versions like iOS 7.1 to be released before releasing a jailbreak to ensure that it has a longer shelf life.

Apple is scheduled to release iOS 7 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch on Wednesday, September 18.

    Noooo plz don’t wait guys!! But I gusse we would get 7.1 (or what ever it was) and ios 7 and ios 6.1.3 jail broken with same exploits? And I’m gussing by then the team would find more? Win win?

    • Sebastian Rasch

      And if not? Then they burned a valuable exploit.

        That’s true, that would suck. But we can’t blame the JB team they are working hard to get us the jailbreak, but I Hurd someone is working on a permanent jailbreak!!! So many one day… Or you never know apple maybe like ok jailbreak it idc anymore (well ok they may not do that… Ever

    Yeah the 1st update after release of iOS 7 GM is actually the initial bugfixer for the global iphone users (who really are considered as mass Beta testers by Apple).
    The 2nd update is to fine tune the global Beta version and to spit in the face of the jailbreak scene in case they made the mistake to release a jailbreak tool to early.
    The 3rd update is to give the jailbreak scene a huge middle finger after they gave away their most important exploit. Apple becomes a bit predictable!?

        It was a a half-joke but in the history of Apple they’ve always brought out a small update to an OS for their newer products… which the editor had stated in the post. But as iOS is still very new. I hardly believe it’ll be a 7.1 instead a 7.0.1/7.0.2 sounds just right.

    I don’t feel as nervous to not have a jailbreak with iOS7. They added a lot of features inspired by jailbreak tweaks that I love like, “Control Center” (SBSettings), multitasking similar to Dash, and unlimited apps in folders (Infinifolders). That being said, I NEED my jailbreak… as a graphic designer, I LOVE customizing my phone – and the first thing I’m going to do is get rid of Apple’s new icons. All in all, I am willing to be patient for the JB team to use a version of iOS that will last longer than a week before Apple pushes the next update and kills the JB exploit.

    iOS7 is not quite ready, I can tell you that so far, many of the features are fantastic, the animations (you zoom in and out of the app’s icon) are nice, the camera app is even faster and holding the button down (even on the 4s) gives you burst mode, Siri is much improved, and I get better battery life. The compass has been tweaked substantially, there’s even a built in level and calibration is no longer that figure 8 crap, instead you rotate the phone in a small circle. That being said.. it needs a bit of work on a few areas. Some apps with video are not yet updated, and will have issues, news apps for example. Siri still can’t close an app and gets confused if you ask it to elaborate and does a web search. You can get Siri to read your email for you, so that’s cool.

    I have beta ios7 GM VERsion. Can I wipe it clean through settings on my iPhone 5 to clean it and keep iOS 7. Thanks in advanced

  • Rube

    Here’s the scoop, all this talk about burning an exploit is a bit pointless. The jailbreak will last as long as the user waits before updating a patched iOS.

  • Boo

    One other thing the Apple TV has an update labeled 7.0.2 so I don’t think it will be long till we see it
