iOS 7 was released over a week ago, but unfortunately it’s only available for those who purchased Apple‘s $100 developer license, or those who decided to download the file using torrent sites (you can read more about that here). But, for the majority of iOS users who haven’t downloaded iOS 7, there’s an easy way to test out iOS 7 for free and not without any risks to your iDevice.
BGR wrote that consumer electronics site Recombu has a risk-free emulator that allows users to test out iOS 7 right inside their computers. To go to the site, click here, and simply follow the instructions. It’s really, really, easy.
Obviously there are some limitations. You won’t be able to use all the apps to their full potential in the computer demo, but users can get a taste of all the cosmetic and interface changes Jony Ive and co. have implemented in iOS 7. How is Recombu able to host iOS 7? BGR explains:
How does it do this, you ask? By hosting the entire thing inside your web browser.
According to 9to5Mac, you can check out some sick new features, like Notification Center and Control Center. In addition, if you’re using Firefox or Chrome, you can use the webcam and take images with the Photos app. Photos got a huge overhaul in iOS 7 and is a lot easier to use, so you definitely need to check it out.
