Apple has just seeded the sixth beta version of iOS 7 to developers of iOS Developer Programme for download. The beta 6 comes after beta 5, which was released more than a week ago. Beta 6 is said to be the final beta version before Apple releases the iOS 7 golden master to developers.
The iOS 7 beta 6, with build number 11A4449d, weighs 13.5MB (for iPhone 5). Beta 6 is available as an Over-The-Air (OTA) update and also in the iOS Dev Center. The new beta includes an emergency fix for an issue with iTunes in the Cloud.
iOS 7 beat 6 changelog
This update addresses an issue with iTunes in the Cloud, where some purchases may download or play unexpected items. If you have any devices running previous versions of iOS 7 beta, you must:
1) Install iOS 7 beta 6
2) Install the ResetMusicAndVideosLibraries configuration profile
3) From Settings>> Music, tap the Reset Media Library button
4) Restart the device
Besides, beta 6 brings enhanced Safari, which seems snappier, and the boot-up time is now better, notes iPhone Hacks. There is no sound while unlocking the device which was removed in beta 6.
The iOS 7 beta 6 is available for iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad Mini and iPod Touch 5.
Not only registered developers, but also non-developers can experience the features of the latest beta version. Non-developers who have installed iOS 7 beta on their devices can now safely update to iOS 7 beta 6 without a registered developer UDID.
