Those looking to get their hands on the iOS 7 beta must exercise their patience, as Apple’s Developer Center has been experiencing downtime since the WWDC keynote concluded just over two hours ago. Apple announced earlier today that the iOS 7 beta for iPhone will be available to registered developers today, while the iPad version will be seeded in the coming weeks.
The public release of iOS 7 is slated for this Fall, so registering your device’s UDID with a registered developer account is the only method of trying out the new software in the meantime. iOS betas are exactly that — betas — and could suffer from a myriad of bugs and performance issues. Apple should periodically release further beta versions throughout the summer.
Update: Apple’s Developer Center website has returned online, although clicking on individual pages within leads to a “we’ll be back soon” landing page.
Update 2: iOS 7 beta 1 is now available.
