When Apple releases iOS 7 to the public later this year, presumably in fall, a new version of iTunes will also be released. Up till now Apple has seeded four betas of iOS 7 to registered developers. The company is expected to seed two more before finally releasing the GM build prior to the public release. Today alongside iOS 7 beta 4, Apple also seeded iTunes 11.1 beta. This beta version of iTunes comes with Apple’s Pandora-killer service called iTunes Radio, a service that is fully integrated in iOS 7 as well.

Right now only registered developers have access to this software as well as the iTunes Radio service. Apple does not release beta firmware to the public. Both iOS 7 and iTunes Radio were unveiled last month at WWDC 2013. Apple had long been rumored to be developing a Pandora like music streaming service, many believed that it undercut Pandora itself. Nevertheless, the folks at Pandora are nonplussed about iTunes Radio, they believe it only brings Apple at par with other companies in the music streaming niche. iTunes 11.1 with iTunes Radio is now available for download through Apple’s developer center.
