iOS 7 beta 6 11a4449d Ipsw Now Available for Download

Last week, we had predicted that Apple would release the sixth beta for iOS 7, which will be the final beta before iOS 7 GM launch in September, but the surprise is Apple released iOS 7 beta 6 build 11a4449d today, that earlier again than we expected. This version only fixed some bugs and crashing issues, the size of update package in OTA is only 12.7 MB.

iOS developers can directly download beta 6 dmg from Dev Center. If your device already installed iOS 7 beta 5, then you can safely upgrade to beta 6 from Software Update in Settings app. Even without a registered developer UDID.

iOS 7 beta 6 released for developers

If your device is still in iOS 6.X, and want to upgrade iOS 7 beta before the public version launch. Then you can directly download the iOS 7 beta 6 ipsw files listed below, and then update via iTunes.

Download iOS 7 Beta 6 IPSW Without developer udid


  • Please ensure that your device is iOS 6.1.4 (iPhone 5), iOS 6.1.3 (Other devices) before upgrading.
  • You’d better restore a new iOS 6.X firmware, to get a clean new system for the iOS 7 upgrading smoothly.
  • If you get an Error 3194 when using iTunes, then you probably need to modify the hosts file on your computer, to ensure iTunes can connect to Apple’s update server successfully.
  • If you frozen the Apple logo and progress bar screen, then you must installed many applications in the previous iOS 6, resulting iOS 7 update extremely slow, to fix that, you can only restore the device to iOS 6.1.4 from DFU mode, then try again.
  • If you get -1 Error When upgrading, try replacing another USB port or computer. If it still not works, enter to DFU, then restore back to iOS 6.x. This error may be due to the damaged baseband hardware.
  • If the iOS 7 Activation error occurred, fix it follow this guide we posted.
  • If iTunes prompts unknown error 6, follow this tutorial for fixing.
  • If you iTuns prompts an incompatible firmware, then you must download  wrong firmware, please check your device model to download a correct file, click here to learn how to download the correct firmware based device model.

    Wow, that was so simple! I just downloaded the firmware, backed up my phone in case anything would go wrong. I installed the new firmware in about 8 minutes completely without errors and all files and applications are still on my phone. Only fooled around with it for a couple of minutes and i love it! The only thin i dont like is that it fucked up my wallpaper since its moving when you tilt the phone but ill just edit some edges onto it on my computer. GOOD LUCK ALL!

    Hi Kevin, Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU FOR YOUR SITE AND YOUR INSTRUCTIONS. The IPSW links you clearly provided and the answers to all the questions to errors. Everything we need to know is exactly specified in your instructions. I had a few installation issues but all three of them have been addressed above in your instructions. I just want to say to anyone who is doing the IOS 7 before you waste Kevins time, scroll up and look at the instructions really close and you will find your answers. I have been all over the web prior to this site and was unable to clearly understand the entire process. Now I have IOS 7 beta 6 running flawlessly and perfectly on my phone without Kevin ever responding to either of the questions I asked due to coming back to his instructions above and re reading them and whalaaa the answer were there. Thanks Kevin for all your patience and hard work in helping me and other get the updates. YOU ROCK!!!!

    Hey Ive been having the same problem as the other guys with the ”firmware is not compatible” but I’m guessing its beacuse I took the wrong model (GSM) and of course that i forgot to remove the hackiphone thingy at the end of the .ipsw. But I have two questions, 1. ´The .ipsw file sais jailbreakiosx at the begginging, should I delete that to? 2. Does ios 7 beta 6 support all apps on appstore, does appstore even work on ios 7 beta 6?

  54. 61

    This doesn’t seem to work… Downloaded the GSM file and got an error message stating that its not compatible. The CDMA one managed to get installed but gives an activation error… Inspite of this being a GSM mobile, it still uses the CDMA ipsw file.

      Managed to get it installed, having issues with ios 7 detecting my cellular network. Trying to fix this now… hopefully will succeed…

    Error 3194 when using iTunes, then you probably need to modify the hosts file on your computer, to ensure iTunes can connect to Apple’s update server successfully.

    How do I modify host file?

      I have the same issue. I also have the same phone as you and even the GSM REV A one is saying “The firmware is not compatible”. Now I don’t know what to do as I restored it back to 6.1.3 like it said and I’ve lost everything on my phone

    Can somebody help me? I’ve restored back to 6.1.3 like it suggests and I downloaded the GSM Rev A 8G for my iPhone 4 and it’s saying it’s not compatible. How can that be the case even though I downloaded the correct one?

    Could somebody clear up what I should do about backing my phone up before installing iOS 7? I’m so, so confused. I don’t want to install iOS 7 and lose all my contacts, messages, pictures, music etc. Although not so much music because I have that on my iTunes anyway but I definitely don’t want to lose all my messages

      Get in DFU mode, shift (if pc) or option (if mac) + click Restore, and restore to ios 6.1.4 if you’re on Iphone 5, or 6.1.3 for all other devices. After that, repeat the instructions carefully. You have to shift or option + click UPDATE, and choose the ios 7 firmware for it to work. If this helps, enjoy your updated firmware beta 6

      Not fake my friend, you have to delete hackphone off the end of the file where it says .ipsw hackiphone <—– delete that!

      • 143

        but im on a mac and even if i do delete hackiphone it still doesnt work there isnt a DMG file to extract the ipsw file like in the other betas

        • 144

          Dude, just download the file, backup your phone completely, then restore it to ios 6.1.4, once that is done, press the option key on your keyboard and the update button with your mouse, then choose the downloaded ios 7 ipsw file.

          This would update your phone to ios 7. Let me know if this works….

      • 145

        i spent probably the whole day downloading the same ipsw file and finally got my answer with this comment! thank you! it was so simple and i never figured it out…THANK YOU!

        great. but iOS7 beta6 didn’t install today. 🙁 i downloaded beta 3 from this site and it installed easily with clicking update button + control key.

        today i did the same it started and in between itunes gives an error simply 🙁

        now downgrading to iOS 6.1.4

  110. 158
  111. 160
  112. 161

    Thanks for posting links very quickly!
    BTW I’ve updated to beta 6 directly from my previous beta 5 on an iPhone 5. Do I need to apply that script?
    Otherwise I can erase all, installing iOS 6.1.4, and then upgrade back to the latest iOS7 beta 6 just to have all things working, does it?
