    Apple recently released the second beta of iOS 7 for the iPhone to developers. The update arrives two weeks after the new mobile operating system was unveiled at WWDC 2013. Developers who are testing the software can download iOS 7 beta 2 through Software Update in the iPhone’s native Settings application. Apple has said the update contains bug fixes and improvements.

    The Cupertino California company also warned users that the second beta “should only be deployed on devices dedicated for iOS 7 beta software development.” The prelease software isn’t intended for use among the general public.

    Although the Settings icon has changed in iOS 7, the gears included still rotate while iOS 7 beta 2 is downloading.

    For those of you who don’t know, Apple gave developers the first beta of iOS 7 two weeks ago at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. This was also the first time in the world that the general public was able to see the major design overhaul made to the platform. When it comes to the exact changes made for iOS 7 beta 2, they have not yet been revealed. We’ll find out soon though as more users download and test this beta version.

    How did you bypass activation if you didn't have a developer account? Mine says I need one when I tried the beta.

    Restore your phone to iOS 6.1.4 through itunes. Restore to factory settings, not to a backup. Then shift click the update button initunes to manually browse for the iOS 7 image. Thats how to run iOS7 without a dev account and bypass activation.

    Are you a developer? If not you shouldn't upgrade.

    Looks like the OTA doesn't work if the root filesystem is mounted read-write
