Apple Seeds iOS 7 (Beta 3) To Developers – [UPDATED: DIRECT LINKS]

Right in line with the company’s fortnightly seeding schedule, Apple has this evening seeded the third beta of iOS 7 to developers of the ADC.

As always, Apple notes that the software should only be deployed on “devices dedicated to iOS 7 development,” with this release of the upcoming OS said to contain various bug fixes and improvements.

Available to registered developers who own either an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, Apple makes sure to highlight that devices updated to iOS 7 (Beta 3) cannot be restored to earlier versions of iOS. Registered development devices will, however, be able to upgrade to future beta releases and the ‘final edition’ of the iOS 7 software.

The update is now available for download either directly via the Apple Developer Portal, or — for those who may already have iOS 7 (Beta 2) installed on their device(s) — the software can also be downloaded over-the-air by heading to Settings > General > Software Update.

It is not yet known what changes have been made in this version. We’ll be sure to update you in the coming hours with whatever we find. If you find something we don’t, you can always contact us at the usual address:
