Apple releases iOS 7 beta 6 - Developers, go get it!

Apple has released beta 6 for iOS 7, which seems to just be a little bit of a bump from that of beta 5 as this release comes in significantly smaller. Perhaps, it's more of a minor bug fix than anything else.

Registered developers can get it now by going to Settings > General > Software Update and doing an over-the-air (OTA), on-device update. It should also be available, in full binary form, via the Apple Developer Center.

Nice! Totally unexpected but glad to see Apple is working hard to get iOS 7 ready for prime time

Paul Einsig says:

I know you guys do not condone the whole non-developer beta thing, but it is safe for non-developers on Beta 5 to OTA to Beta 6....

I'm a non-developer and I've been running OS7 since beta 3 and doing the OTA updates, haven't had any trouble so far.

Just little bugs fixed and nothing new.

It's about time, now I deff don't need a jailbreak. Apples new quick reply and quick compose messages is sweet. Still not as good as bite, but at least we have it.

manand_nz says:

Thought quick reply was for OSX not iphone.
If they did manage to sneak in quick reply from notification center then that's def progress.

Is there any improvements in contacts management/UI ?

Anybody care to speculate on release date? I want iOS 7 NOW!

lbaxter says:

I'd wager sometime after the iPhone event in September.

necigrad says:

I'm gonna guess September 17.

Hammer says:

Me too...1 week after the event.

sknblake says:

I don't see quick replay at all. Am I missing something?

Does anyone else signal dots just stuck on 5 full dots no matter where ever you go ? Ever since iOS 7 beta 4 and up every beta they push out I think it's going to fix it and it doesn't ?? And nobody but mayb 5 or 6 people are talking about it on the whole web. I mean everything else works peachy on my phone but no matter what I try my signal dots just never change unless in LTE or if signal drops to edge otherwise all 4g just stuck on 5 dots and I never know what my signal strength really is
