Apple is still riding the success of it’s latest line of gadget releases, but users are starting to look ahead to the best big release. Rumors of an iPhone 6 are starting to circulate, as it’s expected that an announcement on a next-gen phone could come in the spring.
The spring is also being circled by techies for another reason: the release of the updated iOS 7.1, something Apple is beta testing at the moment.
According to GottaBeMobile, Apple is in the fourth beta test phase for the new iOS 7.1 which means that the release of the updated operating system could be right around the corner. Apple has stated that they want six beta tests for iOS 7.1, and that means that a March release seems very likely.
The iOS 7.1 release date was previously rumored for March and it appears that that hasn’t changed. With two betas remaining, that timing seems to fit given Apple’s history of taking two weeks or so to release new beta updates.
No official release date has been given, but an announcement may come from Apple after the last beta tests are released to developers. The new iOS 7.1 will likely be feature updates to correct bugs and lag issues, as a total visual overhaul like with the release of iOS 7 is not expected.
