Apple has just released iOS 7 beta 6, which can be found in the Developer Portal right now. iOS 7 beta 6 build 11A4449d works with supported iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models, and is available as an over-the-air update to users already running a previous iOS 7 beta on their devices. If you're already running iOS 7, you can update over-the-air by going into Settings > General > Software Update. Or you can go and grab the necessary download at http://developer.apple.com. Apple originally showed off iOS 7, and released its first beta, at WWDC 2013. The full released will come in the fall.

  • The power off slider has been redesigned with rounded corners
  • Control Center can now be set to be disabled when you are running an app
  • You can now pull down on notifications for more info
  • In-call icons have been resized, and put in circles
  • When booting up your device, the display now matches the color of the face of your device, so white iPhones get a white background with black Apple logo
  • Major performance improvements across the board
