I believe that those who sign up for the beta testing are required to sign an NDA, so they wouldn't be able to tell you about it even if they were testing it.

correct there is a NDA and to be eligible to recieve the beta code you are required to be a Apple licensed developer, any other versions floating around are violations of terms

Installing the IOS 7 beta looks tempting if you can get it but unless you know what you are doing, I STRONGLY recommend against it. It is still in development and you stand a good chance of bricking your expensive Iphone. Smiley Surprised

I didn't know I had to be discreet about having it
My developer friend added me to there account in order to trial Smiley Wink

Anyway my verdict is wow what a better experience on my iPhone one nag I hope they change is that the icons on the home screen look way to bright I feel I need sunglasses in order to look at my phone other than that I've noticed a few little tiny bugs but nothing major Smiley Happy

I can't wait for its public real release anyway September 22nd hopefully iPhone 5S will be on the shelves too Smiley Wink

Another thing to remember - once you install there is no take backs, you can't re-install 6.1.4

I had too many issues with the last beta of iOS 6, and decided not to do beta testing on my iDevices anymore.

@ wind grinder.

I have no interest in returning back to iOS 6.1.3
Not now iOS 7 is the way forward and I'm really excited about apples new handset(s)

It's just too bad I have to wait though till December to get my new iPhone that's the sadness for me having to wait till my contract ends so I can cancel and move to another provider lol

Btw if you all do get a chance to use iOS 7 I hope I guys like it as much as I do

I love the Weather app alot I will upload a photo later of my PC Smiley Wink

I seem to read this with every version same with OS 10.9 coming up ,people get comfortable with certain things and don't like change and along with change comes bugs and fixes the same way its been for every OS I have ever used

and at my age I have used quite a few.

why wait?

Can never understand why is someone hates a company and wants to switch they still stay. If you are a att customer you might just want to check your upgrade date, it may have had 4 months added to it, att just recently changed upgrade policy, if you 24 month contract does not end before March 2014, you just had your upgrade date pushed to 24 months instead on 20. Nice try though, can;t give you much for originality though

How long to fix bugs? How long as IOS 6 been out and they still have the data leakage problems on the phone, they altered the way the wireless lan adapter works when the Iphone 5 goes into hiberation - prior wifi modem would stay up when the phone was in hibernation and charging, now the wifi adapter shuts down in that senario

@ Wind grinder, remember I live in Great Britain lol (No AT&T here) just 3 networks exist here as

T-Mobile and Orange are now "EE"  I can quit them before my contract ends but I just don't want to 

pay 4 months line rental to do so i'd rather get my moneys worth Smiley Happy

 

only reason im leaving them is cos of data btw to expensive on there 4G package 

I will move to the network "3" which has all you can eat data included in the price plan I want plus its 4G Smiley Very Happy
