iOS 7 Beta 5 seeding to developers

Apple has begun rolling out beta 5 of iOS 7 for the iPhone, iPad, iPad mini and iPod touch via an over-the-air software update, a little over a week after beta 4 was made available. 


A little over a week after iOS 7 beta 4 made its way to developers (and tinkerers), Apple has begun seeding iOS 7 beta 5 for the iPhone, iPad, iPad mini and iPod touch via an over-the-air software update. The files for the new beta are also available on Apple’s online developer portal for manual upgradation/installation.

BGR has managed to obtain a copy of the beta 5 changelog, and it seems there are a number of changes under the hood, along with improvements to the interface and changes such as the removal of dynamic wallpaper on the iPhone 4, fixes for issues such as the App Store not downloading content, and more. BGR’s text isn’t very clear, so we’ll be sure to update this post once a more readable version of the changelog is made available (along with screenshots).

The beta 5 OTA is somewhere between 130-150MB, and it should be showing up on your device any moment now (it’s already there on my iPad 4). As always, some issues (both old and new) still remain, but with the first Gold Master build said to be coming in September, expect to see the next few beta builds come out in quick succession and fix the leftover annoyances.
