    I read on another website that Apple's Beta 7 of iOS 7 will be released today. Since Apple had to release Beta 6 earlier than their every-two-week schedule they are going to release Beta 7 today which is when Beta 6 would've been released if it were on time. Does anyone know anything about this?? I'm curious to know if this is accurate. It makes sense on paper.

    Most things with blogs site come from sources. Maybe the source was wrong. Maybe Apple decided to release it at a later time. Maybe they pulled the plug on beta 7 period. We shall see. But remember, not everything you read on any blog site will be accurate. Its all about the source coming through correctly.

    Just because the update didn't come today at 1PM doesn't mean it can't necessarily happen. Look at beta 6. It came unexpectedly on a Tuesday we'll after 4PM. So there is still hope.

    Looks like beta 7 isn't releasing today but it should release at some point this week

    Some rumor said no beta 7, it will be GM version.
    But I'm still looking forward for beta 7.

    A bunch of bugs came in with beta 5. (beta 4 was actually pretty stable.)

    Not sure it's ready for a Gold Master...

    Still, who knows. We'll see soon enough...

    I've learned to never trust what BGR says anymore. We'll get the beta update when we get it.

    To be fair they nailed the first few updates no problem. Trust of course can be based on sample size, but only their last two update warnings have been incorrect vs. the prior warnings.

    Based on the iOS 5 & iOS 6 beta releases, if September 10th is the for sure date for the GM release then beta 6 is the last release before GM. I'm starting to think that if beta 7 releases it will be for iPads only

    The beta6 release was a maintenance release for a specific issue... a 7th beta would be what beta6 was to be - the final before GM. If you believe the rumor mill - the GM will go to carriers & Apple insiders 9/5 - and developers 9/10 - so a beta7 this week is plausible.

    well, most of the waiting period has ended. just 20 days of waiting time left.
    more betas= more refined OS.

    Since iOS 5 and 6 had no new betas the final 5+ weeks before GM, I'm going out on a limb and say no we will not see another. I hope I am wrong because I would love another beta but that is my hunch from going by past history. I think they are well into working on a GM candidate and not worrying about any more betas. Well maybe different for the iPad though. I agree with Mark from 9 to 5 Mac and thinking iOS 7 for iPads will not come until October.

    Yep. Ios7 for ipads will be released with the new hardware i.e new ipads . And the beta on ipad is actually behind than what we have on iphone. So it makes sense to delay it for the ipad version of ios.

    Well if beta 7 doesn't come out by Monday then the GM is 100% next (not counting emergency bug fixes)
