iOS 7 Beta 6 now seeding, fixes issue related to iTunes purchases

Apple has begun seeding iOS 7 Beta 6 to compatible iPhones, iPods, and iPads as an over the air (OTA) update, contradicting reports that pitched a release of beta 6 sometime next week.


Beta 6 is by far the smallest update to Apple’s iOS 7 test builds, coming in at around 13-14 MB, and was rushed out to fix an “issue with iTunes in the Cloud, where some purchases may download or play unexpected items.” That’s not to say there aren’t other changes, but the latest beta seems focused on taking care of that rather glaring iTunes issue.

According to reports, beta 6 will be the last beta build and will be followed by the Gold Master (GM) release in early September, before the public release around the time the iPhone 5S will be unveiled. However, seeing as how beta 6 was rushed out ahead of schedule, I wouldn’t put it past Apple to do a couple of more beta builds to make sure such serious issues are buried in oblivion.

Go ahead and grab beta 6 from the Settings » General » Software update menu on your iDevice, and hit up the via link to take a look at the entire change log (or log on to the iOS Developer Portal if you’re a registered developer)
