Apple has just released the sixth beta version of iOS 7 to developers for testing purposes.

iOS 7 Beta 6

Current iOS 7 users can run the over-the-air update or, alternatively, it can also be downloaded via Apple's Developer Center.

It was rumored that beta 6 would be released early next week, roughly two weeks after the release of beta 5; however, the odd timing of this release - Apple traditionally releases new iOS betas to developers on Monday mornings - and the fact the update is only 13.5Mb suggests it could be some form of immediate urgent bug fix.

Apple notes on the iOS Developer Center confirm that the release fixes an "issue with iTunes in the Cloud, where some purchases may download or play unexpected items."

iOS 7 is scheduled for release in the fall of this year, with updates to Apple’s iPhone and iPad lineups expected around the same time. Following past trends, iOS 7 should be made available to the public a few days before the launch of the next-generation iPhone.
