iOS 7 Beta 5 arrived - still possible without dev account

By ,

Howdy folks .. Beta 5 is available via OTA or if you don't own it its available for download. This release contains a few performance tweaks, a few bugfixes and .. some slight changes in the UI.

can i install iOS 7 beta 5 without developer account?

The answer is still: yes you can. If you are allready on beta 4 then you can use the OTA safely. If you are not on any beta build then you have to upgrade via iTunes. Be sure to update using the "shift" Button in Windows or the command button in Mac. No need to make a "clean" install before. It works with updating.

- Settings app now shows colored icons for first settings
- In a message now only the first name is shown
- iPhone starts now with a white screen and a black apple instead of a black screen with white apple.
- you can now disable the control center in apps to avoid open during playing a game.
