YouTube Video Shows iPad Running iOS 7 Beta 1?



For whatever reason, Apple decided not to release a beta version of iOS 7 for the iPad, and released it solely for the iPhone and the iPod touch. Apple’s tablet will instead be getting iOS 7 on-board when the official edition rolls out to the public, probably sometime in October. Though, the Internet is always here to break the rules.

A native Russian, known on YouTube as Rozetked, posted a video on YouTube, thirteen hours ago as I am writing this article, showing an iPad which is either 2nd or 3rd or 4th gen, running on the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system.

After watching the video a couple of times, I noticed that the software not only is a precisely made representation of the original OS and includes the full package of features, it’s also adjusted to the iPad’s screen dimensions. I figured that out after looking at the size of notification and command center. Something I am not sure though, is if the parallax effect between the apps and the background is present here. If you see it, let us know in the comments below.

Moreover, the video creator pointed out to the viewers that when the user tries to access the Settings app, in this edition, the device will automatically respring. An interesting fact is though, all the third-party apps work fine. Brain-teaser isn’t it? In addition, Rozetked doesn’t provide us with any info regarding how he installed the software to his device, which leaves a lot of questions without answers on the table.

Now regarding how official this iOS 7 edition is, with the data at hand, we can’t say much. It’s highly probable that what we saw is a very-well professionally made theme as well, ported to the device either through Jailbreak or through another program. Unfortunately, our sources can not confirm its authenticity. If we get any new info, we’ll be sure to give you guys an update.

In the video, the person behind the camera speaks Russian, though he included English subtitles for our convenience. Watch it for yourself and let us know what you think!
