For those of you developers (and, non-developers that shouldn’t be) on iOS 7, it looks like the next beta is set to be released come this Monday, July 22nd. This would follow the pattern of the previous 2 betas that were released in 2 week increments following the other. It’s likely that this update will again address some bugs that people have been experiencing, and possibly add some new UI tweaks just as the previous ones have done. Battery life, at least for myself, has been getting better with each release, so hopefully that will stand true for this as well.
So far, iOS 7 has been a very stable overall operating system. On iPad, however, I actually ended up going back to iOS 6 as it was just too much to deal with. Everyone is having their own successes and failures, however, with some being the opposite of me and having iPhone issues while the iPad is fine. It seems to be a device-by-device basis. What would be nice to see is if Apple would start releasing beta version of applications such as Find My iPhone, Find My Friends, iBooks, and other still skeumorphic application such as the iWork and iLife suite of apps. These are still living in that past, and it can only be a matter of time until we see them shift to the new UI language introduced in iOS 7.
What do you think? Looking forward to iOS 7’s public release? Wonder what will come in beta 4? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
