Apple has recently released the third version of its famous operating system. Apple’s iOS 7 Beta 3 offers support for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. By upgrading to the latest iOS version, developers have the opportunity to see the company’s progress over the past weeks.
The beta version arrives as built 11A4414e, and it includes various bug fixes and improvements. A month after the first iOS 7 beta version was released, Apple still needed to clear some things up in order to make iOS 7 a reliable and effective operating system.
While the first iOS 7 seed seemed pretty unstable, the iOS 7 beta 3 comes to solve all those problems users encountered. With visible changes and enhancements, the iOS 7 beta 3 has a strong chance to become the official iOS 7 planned to be released this fall.
Despite the fact that the first iOS 7 beta version did not offer iPad support, the second seed changed this. Now, within the third version, tablet users still have the possibility to upgrade their smart devices to the latest operating system in order to see all those changes and improvements while encountering a smoother overall experience.
Therefore, here are some notable changes that the iOS 7 beta 3 has brought to its users. First of all, the Passbook problem is now long time gone. In previous versions of the iOS SDK, Passbook did not validate the backfields on passes completely. Within iOS 7 beta 3, this has been corrected. However, this means that some passes added on iOS 6.0, 6.1, and iOS 7 Beta 1 can become invalid on iOS 7 Beta 2 or later.
In the same time, the seed offers development versions of new male and female Siri voices for the U.S. English and French and a new male voice for German. Within iOS 7 beta 3, the Newsstand background downloads that use HTTP basic or digest authentication will prompt the user with authorization alerts and callbacks.
As the other two previous versions, the iOS 7 beta 3 is intended for use on developer devices and not for the everyday user. For those who plan to experiment Apple’s latest operating system, the possibility to downgrade from beta back to iOS 6 builds is pretty simple. Those devices running on iOS 7 beta 2 can download the new beta directly from Over-The-Air updates.
From Settings, visit General and tap on the Software Update option. Next, tap on Download and Install to begin the update process. Keep in mind that the installation process might take a while before completing. This is the simplest way to get the latest beta version of iOS 7.
On the other hand, users have the possibility to download iOS 7 Beta 3 on their devices directly from Apple’s Developer Center and then use IPSW to update directly from iTunes.
