    Typically there’s a couple of weeks of overlap, actually.

    Once someone leaks the expiration we'll have a better idea.

    Not always. I know some of the later previous betas would come out right before the beta was about to expire or when the beta expired.

    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. It depends on what is being tweaked in each beta. Even for the OTA updates, you can do the download/iTunes install.

    I'm working on creating an app right now and this is my first time being a dev during an iOS beta. I am tempted to put iOS 7 on my main personal phone as well. I swear I won't become one of those people who then complains because beta doesn't work perfectly on their phones. I know it's beta. Anyways, my question is about the beta stages. Will the beta stages continue/update all the way through the full release in the fall, or sometime before the full release does the last beta build expire and then you're left without a usable phone for a few weeks before the general public release? That was my one concern about putting it on my main phone. So I figured I would ask. Thanks!

    This was the case last year for iOS 6. This is what most likely will hold true. ^^

    I've never run into this issue. The Gold Master is usually out ahead of the official release. It does not require UDID activation.

    Agreed. You shouldn't have any trouble with it expiring in your main phone. Just beware that some apps may just not work or work really poorly, so if there's an app that you use slot, do some searches to find out if anyone else has has trouble with it. (The apple dev forums has a long thread non non-working apps.)

    If you do a quick google search, there have been timelines posted in the past showing the duration of each beta for all past iOS releases. May give you some idea for this one. But of course it doesn't mean Apple will stick with previous schedules.

    It looks like Beta 1 has an expiration date of July 24th - so, six weeks from now. I think that's a good chunk of time to fine tune any major issues, and pump out a new beta. Personally, I'm going to hold off until beta 2 comes out.

    I remember the past 2 betas being released on The Monday of the announcement then the following betas every 2 weeks on Mondays as well and a few times the betas would skip a week so you waited 3 weeks. I thought the betas expired day(s) or week after the new one was posted Any other devs confirm that?

    I don’t recall specific expiration dates on the previous betas... but it seems to me that it was almost always more than a week out. I do recall one single instance where the expiration date was fast approaching, and the new beta was not yet out... but typically it was a couple of weeks or more... just my rusty recollection.

    I actually looked ios 6 beta 1 came out June 11th and expired July 25th and beta 2 came out June 25th and next wasn't until July 16th and beta 2 expired July 31st

    I know you shouldn't have it on your phone if your a non developer but it happens every beta. There is wiggle room to avoid being expired

    I hope a beta is released soon; Beta 1 is very buggy, so I "updated" back to iOS 6.1.3 to prevent information loss.
