Just after WWDC 2013, when iOS 7 was announced, Apple has also made available to first beta version of the latest iOS. The point to remeber is that new iOS 7 beta versions are for developers only so normal users should refrain from upgrading their devices to the all new operating system. The new iOS version is only available for download on iPhone and iPod models, it has not been released for any model of iPad so far.
The operating system of any device on iOS can be upgraded from existing to iOS 7. The iOS 7 beta 1 version is available for iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5th generation devices. Whenever a new version of iOS is announced, the beta versions for developers become available at the same time. Apple will soon make iOS 7 beta versions available for other devices like iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad Mini while the iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4 will not be supported with new iOS. It was veruy much expected that Apple would discontinue the new operating system update for all such older devices. Rather support for iPhone 4 was also doubtful before the WWDC 2013, however, the users of iPhone 4 are lucky enough to enjoy for another year with update of new iOS.
It is also recommended for those who have to update the devices to iOS 7 beta 1, that they must backup their data to either iTunes or iCloudd before starting. Most likey as it is the first beta version, there will be a large number of bugs in this operating system which will be removed in upcoming upates by Apple. Apple has warned the users from downloading this iOS from any unauthroized source because it is illegal as well as may be harmful for your device.
