    just curious as to what happens when beta 1 expires. does it become unusable or what?
    Yep. It will no longer work. Your choices at that point are to restore to 6.1.3/4 (current version, depending on your device) or move to the next beta release. If you managed to short-circuit the process for beta 1 and not get your UDID registered, you only have the former option.

    Correct. Solution is to backup, downgrade, install beta 2, then restore.

    You want to test it for what reason? Are you developing an Application for iOS?

    Paying a 100 as a developer is pocket change to what you will make once an app is release to iOS, heck even at .99


    Just my thoughts. as a consumer, it's not worth to test as a daily driver...... Apple knows what they are doing. They don't need regular users trying it..
    Because I'm a real techy kind of person. I like to mess around with technology and to test out iOS 7 would be nice. But I don't want it to mess my only device up.

    Especially for the first beta. How can you expect it to run smooth and perfectly?

    all betas are always a download option. No OTA updates for Beta version.

    LOL not true, OTA updates for betas have been around for a while. Usually depends on what they are fixing.

    I got a question for you guys, I got a iPhone 5 with iOS 7 Beta 1 on it, I updated like the most of us, I downloaded the Beta 1 and installed through itunes (option key and chose the Beta 1), plus i didn't registrated the UDID.

    I don't have any problems with it, only a few bugs, (I bought the iPhone through the Apple store, bought at full price and it's sim unlocked), My question is, when iOS 7 Beta 2 comes out, can I update my iPhone 5 with iOS 7 Beta 1 on it to Beta 2 without any problems?

    I'm not sure. They may fix whatever "bug" it is in iTunes that allows anyone to upgrade to iOS 7, but they may not. If you're running the beta without a registered UDID, I'd advise you to downgrade before July 24th.

    If you didn't register your UDID and keep the iOS 7 beta until the fall. Are you still able to get the fully upgraded software for iOS 7?

    If Beta2 can not be installed by non-developers OTA or in the same manner Beta1 was installed - yes, you'll have to restore back to iOS6 before beta1 expires.

    you can't keep a beta release past its expiration date... if you restore back to iOS6 - you'll be able to upgrade once iOS7 is released.

    Because the "moral police" come after them on forums like these. If people want to risk jacking up their phone who cares? Does it affect you? No, so let them do their own thing with their own devices.

    Those who don't have a developer account with the UDID registered will, yes. Those who DO have their UDID registered can just update to beta 2, which should be out a while before beta 1 self destructs.

    You can! all you have to do is find the correct ios 7 ipsw file for your respected device and do a shift+click (PC) on update or option+click (MAC) and select the ipsw file that you downloaded. Then you are updated! (WARNING: DO NOT DO A SHIFT/OPTION+CLICK ON RESTORE. THEN YOU WILL BE FORCED TO REGISTER YOUR UDID WHICH COSTS MONEY) For more info and downloads got to IOS 7 DOWNLOAD, INSTALL, LINKS, HOW TO - Jailbreak 6.1.3 iOS 7 Evad3rs.
    Hope I helped!

    1) Usually the next beta build will be released either OTA or on the dev portal before the previous (current) build expires.
    2) Where's garz with his sweet inside info on the next build? I actually think b1 is stable-ish as far as b1's go...doesn't really break TOO much...but that being said, b2 will probably fix a good amount issues.

    Find a friend who is a dev, thats how i got it....
    I take it you have not read the 100s of warnings about running iOS 7 if you are NOT a Developer... By your statement Sir you are not a Dev but let a Dev who should not have given you the iOS 7 Beta not do you deserve to be using it w/o being registered with your UDID with Apple. We really like to not hear these kinds of things here telling everyone else how to get it.

    I would suggest keeping your knowledge to yourself. Thank you.

    What exactly do you mean by ios7 beta 1 will expire July 24th? Nobody else can sign up for it as a developer or that is the date they will release the next beta version?
    By simply asking this question tells me you have no idea and should stay far away from the Beta.
