Why You Shouldn’t Install iOS 7 Beta

1. Compatibility issues with apps in iOS 7 beta:

We’re hearing a number of issues with third-party apps on iOS 7. This is not the developers fault so please don’t post a bad review for it in the App Store. They still have to update their apps for iOS 7. They will only be able to fix the issues and push the updates to the App Store when Apple releases iOS 7 Golden Master, which will be sometime in September.

2. iOS 7 Beta is buggy:

In addition to compatibility issues with third-party apps, there are number of bugs even in the stock apps, which can cause the Springboard to crash or the device to reboot. It can be quite annoying if it happens while you’re writing an important email, in the middle of a call or about to hit your highest score while playing your favorite game.

There is a reason why Apple is calling it a beta and not a public release and is limiting access to developers of iOS Developer program. Apple will use the beta phase, which usually lasts for three months to fix the crashing issues and bugs. Developers will also use this phase to update their apps to the new iOS 7 UI and fix the compatibility issues.

If you are interesting and want to help then please don’t wait and feel free to report iOS 7 bugs to Apple.

3. Downgrading from iOS 7 to iOS 6:

While there is an easy way to downgrade to iOS 6 from iOS 7 beta, you can run into some serious issues. You won’t be able to restore your device from an iOS 7 backup after downgrading to iOS 6.x.x. You will be able to restore your device only to an iOS 6.x.x compatible backup. This means that the data between the time you upgraded to iOS 7 to the time you downgraded will be lost.

In fact, Apple warns users that they won’t be able to downgrade back to the previous version.

4. No Jailbreak available for iOS 7 beta:

If you’ve a jailbroken device, then please note that you will lose the jailbreak if you upgrade to iOS 7 beta. Hackers won’t release tools for beta versions of iOS software updates as Apple could fix the vulnerabilities used by the jailbreak tools in the final version. So you will only be able to jailbreak your device when hackers release a jailbreak for the public version of iOS 7.

5. No help with iOS 7:

You also won’t get help or support from either the developer or Apple for the problems you hit with iOS 7 beta. Developers will tell you to wait for the final version of iOS 7 and Apple may tell you to wait for the next beta version for the fix. Even developers don’t install beta versions on their primary devices. They usually have devices specially for testing their apps on beta versions of iOS.

6. Not fully optimized

iOS 7 beta is also not yet fully optimized. Apple is most likely collecting debug information to help them track and fix bugs, which could have an impact on performance. We also expect Apple to continue to improve the performance during the beta phase.

7. Expectations

People are upset that iOS 7 beta is buggy and laggy. If you’re a developer then we’re sure you have experienced this, but if you’ve been a user who has downloaded the final releases, then iOS 7 beta can come as a rude shock as you’re probably used to the rock solid performance of iOS. The beta version is not meant for end users, so don’t install it. Developers trying to compare iOS 7 beta with iOS 6 beta is pointless. Apple has made significant changes in iOS 7, so expect a lot more bugs in iOS 7 beta compared to previous beta versions.
