Apple’s iOS 7 beta 2 to be released today [updated]

iOS 7 Beta 2 Release Date

We have been told via our carrier sources that iOS 7, Apple’s brand new mobile operating system to be released sometime this fall, will be getting an update to beta 2 today. While Apple normally seeds iOS betas to carrier partners before developers, we believe there’s a good chance it will make its way to the Apple Developer portal today, too. iOS 7 is not a public release, but multiple app developers have reported that they are seeing more people running iOS 7 than iOS 5 in their app logs. That could amount to hundreds of thousands or even millions of people running iOS 7 already. Apple’s iOS 7 is a major update and a complete rethinking of the company’s mobile vision for the future, and while the current release is usable, many people are eagerly anticipating a new update that should fix bugs, introduce some refinement, and possibly even include some new features. If Apple makes iOS 7 beta 2 available for developers to download today, which we believe it will, it should become available around 1:00 pm EDT.

UPDATE: Our carrier sources have confirmed that iOS 7 beta 2 has now been released to carriers, as we reported.
