Just three more iOS 7 betas left, source claims

updated 12:12 pm EDT, Mon July 29, 2013

Beta 4 said to be going live later today

Apple is planning to release just three more betas of iOS 7 before the gold master version debuts in early September, a BGR source claims. Several sources suggest that beta 4 will go live later today, now that the Developer Center has been fully restored. The code is expected to contain bugfixes, graphical and UI enhancements, and "a couple of other updates," according to BGR.

If the suggested GM timing is correct, iOS 7 and/or new iPhones could ship in mid-to-late September. A gold master is essentially the finished version of a piece of software, issued to developers and/or manufacturers shortly before a product hits stores. To date, Apple has only confirmed that iOS 7 will reach the public sometime this fall.

    Why is this news?
    Pure guess since iOS 7 beta is on 2-week release schedule with exception of the Developer Center being down.
    There's the assumption made that iOS 7 would be release in September.
