Has the temptation to check out new features like Control Center and AirDrop been too much? Or will you wait for the official release?

Have you installed the iOS 7 beta?


The iOS 7 beta has been available for just a little under a week now, and while its initial release was solely intended for developers, chances are a few outside sources have gotten their hands on Apple’s latest vision for mobile. While initial reports indicate about what we would expect (read: plenty of bugs, poor battery life, etc.), we are wondering if anyone out there is using iOS 7 as as a daily driver.

The recommendation would be to hold off, but for some the temptation of a revamped UI and new features like Control Center, AirDrop, and improved multitasking are too hard to resist. Of course, Apple’s warning that upgrading to iOS 7 offers no means of returning to a stable build of iOS 6 (though not totally accurate) might have turned a few off. So have you taken the plunge? Let us know how you’re liking the new version of iOS in the comments below!

    Yep… it’s kinda messed up my icloud backups because of the mix&match with OS versions, but other than that and some beta quirks, it’s been a nice change (also own an S4 for comparison’s sake).

    I picked up a 5th Gen iPod Touch to put it on, and have been pleased with the stability, keeping in mind that it is an early beta. I haven’t pushed it very hard yet. I’ve only loaded a few 3rd party apps so far. I have mainly been using it to test the new UI, stock app updates, and iTunes Radio. So far, so good for me.

    I put it on my personal device, and it works just fine for everyday use.

    does installing the ios7 beta makes your device jailbroken ?? i mean do you need to jailbreak your device to use the ios7??

      No. You need either an apple developer account ($100) or you need to find the .ipsw online.

    I got it from ujailbreakiphone for my iPhone 5 and other than the poor battery life, I would say it is pretty solid for a beta release, especially the first one.
