Apple releases iOS 7 Beta 5 to developers

Apple has seeded iOS 7 beta 5 to developers this morning. The update comes just one week after the release of beta 4, as it appears that the company is trying to get back on track after the lengthy Developer Center outage.

Beta 5 is available now to all registered Apple developers via the Dev Center and OTA, which can be installed by visiting the Software Update section in the Settings app of proper devices that currently have iOS 7 installed…
The previous beta brought about a number of UI tweaks and changes throughout the operating system, but did not include any major features. It did, however, contain code references to the A7, and the rumored fingerprint sensor.
The fifth beta is available for compatible iPhones, iPads and iPod touch models. We’re installing it ourselves, and will be reporting back with any new stuff we find. So make sure you keep checking back with us throughout the day.
As always, we welcome you to let us know if we missed anything by e-mailing us at
Today’s iOS 7.0 beta 5 (11A4449a) released to developers expires on Sunday, October 6, 2013 @ 12AM (GMT). #TheMoreYouKnow

You Can Update to iOS 7 Without a Registered iPhone UDID!
It's currently possible update to iOS 7 without having your iPhone's UDID registered in a developer account.

We were first alerted to this by iClarified reader Will Peterson who performed the update on two iPhone 5s. We have tested and confirmed it working on the iPhone 4S, a brand new iPhone 5, and an additional iPhone 5.

To perform the update you must get a hold of the iOS 7 ipsw, press and hold the Option key (Shift for Windows) and click Update in iTunes. Select the iOS 7 ipsw from the popup window to install.

It's unclear why this is working. Only iPhone devices registered by developers are supposed to be able to install beta firmware. Perhaps Apple took down this check since its servers are being flooded at the moment.


- Do not do this if you want to retain your jailbreak. You will not be able to get it back.
- Do not do this if you need hacktivation. You will not be able to hacktivate.
- Do not do this if you want to downgrade back to iOS 6. You will not be able to. Update: We tried to downgrade and it worked!

- You MUST use the update button NOT the restore button.
- Users are reporting better success when updating from iOS 6.1.3 then earlier versions.
- Make sure your device is activated before clicking update.
