Ahead of schedule, Apple released iOS 7 Beta 6 to developers. Originally believed to arrive on Monday, the company surprised their registered team of developers with the latest installment.
Compared to is predecessors, the sixth beta gained one minor tweak. An important update needed to be made on an emergency issue related to iTunes in the cloud which is why this version had 13.5 MB over the air download. The reason for this was that developers were seeing purchases “download or play unexpected items.” Apple Insider also revealed that the company’s method of addressing this issue involves downloading a special configuration file to reboot the device’s media library.
While the process of producing several betas over the course of a few months is normal for Apple, this particular release surprised its developer community. Over the past few months, Apple has provided betas to test in order to refine and hone it before the ultimate launch date. Originally, each beta has appeared every two weeks on a Monday. From what we know now, this could be the final beta to be tested before a gold version gets launched September 5th.
