Usually every two weeks or so. Normally they arrive on Mondays or Fridays.

Oh really? That's awesome. I was worried I'd have to live with the buggy software for a bit :)

Nope, beta releases are aggressive in nature so that they can work out most of the bugs, if not all, by release day.

Keep up with the Betas tho. When they get a couple out they will start deactivating the old ones! I bricked an iPad one time by not staying on the latest beta.

Yup. Usually it is safe to skip a beta or two because the beta expiration date is far enough in advance that a few betas will come and go before that date is hit. For example, Beta 1 is hardcoded to expire on July 24th, there will at least be two more betas during that time. Having done every beta since iOS 4, I would recommend holding off on upgrading the beta until reports are out on any serious bugs.

For what it's worth I was able to downgrade back to 6.1.4 relatively easily. The battery drain on iOS7 was killing me, by noon my phone was nearly dead with moderate to low use. iOS7 is fun to play with (and i will continue to upgrade to future beta versions), but I can't be so tethered to a charging cord at work.

Any luck on downgrading back to 6.1.2 or lower for jailbreak? Or the furthest you could go back down was .1.4? I am hesitant to give my jailbreak on my i5. Still playing with it on the 4s. Worried if I go up to ios7 I won't be able to get back to .1.2

I didn't try to go back to 6.1.2, but the website I downloaded 6.1.4 from said you aren't able to because Apple is only allowing 6.1.4 (probably due to the jailbreak). Unrelated to the beta iOS7 situation, a month or so ago I inadvertently upgraded from my JB to 6.1.3 and tried to go back but was not successful. Only go up if you're willing to part ways with your JB.

I figured that! I will stick with 7 on my 4s and just wait for gold master, and the jailbreak I assume shortly to follow.

iOS7 failed to get my attention at all. It sickens me they copied Android's features, but yet they sue others for features..  Apple's falling in my respect book.

I wouldn't try iOS 7 yet:

Also, anyone that says it's an Android copy is looking at this from a design perspective I really have to disagree with.

 

If anything it's a toned down yet three dimensional version of what Apple was already doing. iOS 7 may be even more skeuomorphic than iOS 6 is. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

I won't use iOS 7 until it's final as I use my iPad and iPhone too much for work and can't afford for them to be flakey.

 

And don't say the A word or they come running.

Eh I prefer to have drop down menu's. Not 2 photos per screen lol. They kinda copied android, but changed the squares to circles. Made it so it doesn't entirely look like an obvious RIP from Android. Sad though lol

Just a short follow up. I got 7 to load on the pad. It's buggy, but it's basically the as on the 4s. I do like the HDR enabled now on the iPad.

iOS 7 beta 2 (iPad 3) is getting on my nerves today. Went looking into new features and the bugs are popping out.

Keep in mind I know it's a Beta and these are minor, but in my mind MUST be fixed.

 

Cons:

 

To list a few:

1.) The lag in the keyboard in most if not all apps. The switch from alpha to the numerical keyboard is really laggy.

 

2.) In safari the scrolling flickers. When you scroll down the list of S4GRU threads ;-) too fast the page gets chopped up in black flickering bars.

 

3.) Siri's voice has changed twice now on its own.....to some German accented English. I had to disable then re-enable Siri to get it to revert back. (The United States English option did not fix it)

 

4.) WiFi......several times the wifi has list connection. I then told it to reconnect but it just sat with the spinning loading star. Required reboot to get it to auto connect.

 

5.) In the photos app....all ur pics saved from the web to the iPad are grouped in the home collection. Would like it to separate them as their own collection.

 

6.) The heat issue from beta 1 on the 4s seems to be better, but the battery drain on beta 2 is still intense.

 

7.) When u redownload apps from the AppStore purchased section, some show as being on ur iPad already but you cannot find the app anywhere. However if you go into the App Store it allows you to "open" it from there.

 

 

Pros:

 

1.) I like the flattened out look. The icons are brighter.

 

2.) Siri seems to be far more accurate in pulling up specific web data. Especially wiki data. (The new voice is smoother, softer)

 

3.) The collections in the photo app are concise any when searching for pics and vids from specific dates and events.(The one exception being the con listed above).

 

4.) The "jailbreak like" control center. It is pretty simple and really not that buggy. Controlling things on the fly without having to hunt thru the settings app, is cool.

 

There are plenty of things I do like about the new iOS, but right now I am looking mainly for bugs, so I can report them back and help make 7 more stable.

 

This is in no way an apple bashing post! I love all my iDevices. Just looking to see if anyone is have these same issues. Will post more as I find em.

 

Peace,

Daniel J.

Thanks for your report.  Thankfully Apple has a few months to work the kinks out.  Have you tried AirDrop yet?

I'm excited to hear about all the new features. I'm really looking forward to iOS 7 when it's released this fall. :)

Update:

 

I cannot air drop as I am in beta on my old 4s and my iPad 3. Air drop isn't supported on anything lower than the pad 4 the iPhone 5 and the latest iPod touch. I'm not ready to risk running beta on my i5 to test air drop. I could use mine and the wife's i5s to check it out but I think I will wait for a cpl more betas first.

Not to hijack the thread. But quickly, I figured out how to display my signal strength without having to install anything from cydia! Yayyyy!

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:01 AM MST
       
      Many of us enjoy the freedom that rooting or jailbreaking our phones gives. Adding custom ROMs, removing “bloatware” or Carrier IQ, and adding additional controls are just the start. We knowingly take the risk that that we may turn our phone into a brick, and our warranty will likely not cover repair or replacement. But will we knowingly commit a criminal act to unlock our phones?
      Apple has claimed that jailbreaking the iPhone was in conflict with copyright laws. Given the amount of time they spent locking down iOS, it’s no surprise they oppose it. In July 2010, the U.S. Copyright Office eventually decided that jailbreaking and rooting was not a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), as long as it was not done with the intent of circumventing copyright. However, this decision was not permanent. If it is allowed to expire next month, jailbreaking and rooting could be considered breach of the DMCA.
      Development websites like XDA started out with the public perception that they were underground gatherings of hackers and pirates. Since the U.S. Copyright Office published the finding that jailbreaking and rooting was not illegal, those development websites have become widely popular and have largely changed the public's perception. Even Steve Kondik, aka “Cyanogen”, creator of the widely popular Android ROM CyanogenMod was hired by Samsung.
      Due to the liberties that millions of us enjoy about to be removed due to the sunseting DCMA, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has begun a campaign to keep our phones free. They are undertaking a campaign to convince the U.S. Copyright Office that we should have the right to unlock not only our smartphones, but our tablets and video game consoles. They have a petition that they will send to the U.S. Copyright Office, and they are asking for Concrete examples of legal uses of jailbreaking that “will help show the Copyright Office why they should renew and expand the exemptions for jailbreaking.”

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.
