SOFTWARE DEVELOPER Apple has rolled out iOS 7 beta 6 to developers' iPhones and iPads, as the final version nears release.
iOS 7 beta 6, which we promptly downloaded onto our iPhone 5 on Friday morning, brings a handful of small tweaks and improvements to Apple's upcoming mobile operating system update.
The most notable change is a fix that sorts out issues with iTunes in the iCloud, with iOS 7 beta 5 having an issue that saw purchases resulting in downloads of unexpected content. To resolve the issue, users must - once they have downloaded iOS 7 beta 6 and it is onboard - install the RestMusicAndVideoLibraries configuration profile, before going to Settings > Music > Reset Music Library. Apple promises that after the device has been restarted, this will fix the problem.
Other changes in iOS 7 beta 6 include refreshed fonts, Find My iPhone updates and tweaks to the Address Book. We'll update this article if we discover any more noteworthy changes.
There's a rumour that iOS 7 beta 6 will be the final beta release before Apple pushes out its final gold master build, which is expected to be released to partners on 5 September, ahead of its public release on 20 September. Such a release date would make sense, with Apple reportedly set to unveil its next iPhone(s) in San Francisco on 10 September.
Those already running iOS 7 who want to upgrade to the latest beta version need to go to Settings > General > Software update, where beta 6 is available to download over the air (OTA). The update is 13.5MB. µ
