ios 7

Apple is yet to roll out a major update for iOS 7. Ever since the firmware was publicly released in September 2013, the company has rolled out a few incremental updates to fix bugs and various issues, but so far no major update has graced users’ devices. That might change within a few weeks, as beta 4 of iOS 7.1 has finally been seeded to developers. iOS 7.1 has been making the rounds in beta stage for a few months now, this update is expected to bring user interface tweaks.

Moments ago Apple seeded iOS 7 beta 4 to registered developers, who can now download the latest firmware on their devices and go about finding any bugs or issues that need to be fixed. It is available over-the-air for developers already running a previous beta of iOS 7.1, it comes in at 112MB. Apple only seeds beta firmware to registered developers, these firmware files are not open to the public, they actually can’t be installed on an iOS device that hasn’t been registered as a developer device. The changelog only notes that this new iOS 7.1 beta comes with bug fixes and improvements, we should hear more about the changes once developers have had ample time to go through it. Apple today also released Apple TV software beta 4 and Xcode 5.1 beta 4.
