Apple has released the latest beta of its new iOS 7 operating system to the developer community, with a host of bug fixes included.
The largest of the fixes in the beta 6 update relate to Apple's iTunes and iCloud services. On the previous iOS 7 beta 5 the service would download random content when users attempted to purchases items on the store.
Other key changes include updates to the fonts, Find My iPhone and Address Book services. The update is available to developers via the Apple Developer portal. Those running the older beta 5 version can also upgrade to beta 6 using the iPhone or iPad's inbuilt Software Update service.
Rumblings in the developer community indicate the beta 6 version of iOS 7 will be the final test build of the OS. The full version of iOS 7 is expected to be released to partners on 5 September and come pre-installed on the next Apple iPhone, which is rumoured to be unveiled days later at an event on 10 September.
Details of the next iPhone remain unknown though there is a sea of rumours about potential upgrades. The iOS 7 operating system is seen as a huge step forward for Apple after its older software, as it battles to maintain its stranglehold on the market alongside Samsung.
The beta's release follows the launch of chief competitor Google's new Android 4.3 Jelly Bean mobile operating system last month.
The OS was unveiled alongside the company's latest 7in Nexus 7 tablet and features a number of under the hood upgrades designed to make it more appealing to the developer community. These include OpenGLS 3.0 support and new multiple account powers. For a full look at Android 4.3 check out V3's review.
