How to Download iOS 7 Beta 6 on Your iPad and iPad Mini

Apple seeded iOS 7 Beta 6 for developers and Apple enthusiasts a few weeks ago providing an emergency update for iTunes. Since we won’t get an iOS 7 Beta 7, this will be the last test project for the tech community before the iOS 7 gold master is released this fall. To try out the beta before then, here’s how you can download iOS 7 for your Apple tablet.

It’s a pretty easy process to set up your iPad or iPad Mini to run iOS 7. You have to connect your iPad to your computer and open up iTunes, where you should see a button that says “Check For Updates.” Hold “Option” and click on Check for Updates (if you’re using Windows, it’s shift+click).
