Download iOS 7 Beta 2

The easiest way to download iOS 7 beta 2 is through Over-the-Air update on any device currently running the first beta. Apple’s developer site also includes download links as usual.

OTA Update

This can be done through Settings > General > Software Update. The OTA download weighs in between 160MB and 240MB, depending on the device that iOS 7 is installed on. Downloading the update is quite fast, but many who are installing the update currently find that it sits on “Preparing Update…” for quite a while, with a very slow moving progress bar. Once that is finished, tap on “Install Update” to proceed with the actual installation, where a “Verifying Update” message appears before the device reboots with a new progress bar, before launching into the second beta.

Direct Downloads

iOS developers registered with Apple can also log into Apple’s Developer Center to get direct download links to beta 2 IPSW. Those wishing to install iOS 7 beta 2 on an iPad must use the developer portal and download the firmware directly from Apple

 

You can also use the links below, which point directly to the DMG file hosted on Apple’s servers. Do note these will be only accessible to those registered with the Developer Program and logged into their individual accounts. Mount the DMG image to locate the IPSW firmware file to use for updating to beta 2:
