    It will be released in the Fall this year... what you see on youtube are people with and without developer accounts who have legally and illegally installed the Beta version of iOS 7 onto their iPhones and now iPads.

    iOS 7 is currently in developer beta, which means you must be a developer for iOS apps in order to gain access to these versions. Keep in mind that these betas will be buggy and have many issues as they are not meant for public release.

    No, likely they are stealing - installing pirated versions of the software on their phones and bricking them.


    The only other people who would have it would be developers, and in accordance with their NDA, they wouldn't (or shouldn't) be talking about it....

    OMG!!!! (the post) Yeah - I don't blame you for being done. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty much a manual nut. Manuals and "Help" windows (and Google). It's like these totally tech addicted people don't know how to use the technology to figure things out....or maybe it's that it requires actual reading and comprehension skills. No instant gratification - concentration, understanding, knowledge growth....


    It's like speaking an alien language....


    I'm good buddy! You?
