I've got a friend that would like to get the iOS7 beta on his iPhone 5. Where can he download it?

Usually you have to have the device registered with Apple, but it does look like at least in some betas, this wasn't needed. However, providing links would be a copyright violation.

 

For $100 he can get them directly from Apple. I actually did this, but I'm not normal.

 

Personally, I'd wait until it's done.

He needs to be a registered developer, which cost $99.00 a year or he can get from a developer. However apple is cracking down on this and if caught Apple will terminate the developer account

Worth noting that a lot of apps are not iOS7 compatible.  So while it might be cool to show off iOS7 to friends there will likely be some frustration when they find their favorite app crashes.   

 

I find it troubling to read reviews out there and 1 star ratings on apps because they don't work with iOS7 beta.   Hurts some companies and developers.

Another option to get the "look and feel" to iOS7 is to JB and get one of the iOS7 themes. If you see my iPhone5 you would think I have iOS 7 but I don't. it just looks exactly throughout

Apple needs to prevent those types of reviews. There is no reason release compatible versions yet, until a few weeks before release.

Or at least let developers comment on those reviews

No, they shouldn't be allowed at all, they simply aren't valid. Are there issues with apps, absolutely. But is it an issue with the app, or an issue in iOS? I'm sure both are true depending on the app, but making developers comment on the reviews puts them on the defensive, and still downgrades the rating.

They can't comment on the reviews aside from a single review themselves that get buried,  and if 10 or 100 people give 1 star, the ratings stick and drag down the overall star system.

Just my .02, but I don't think anyone paying to test iOS 7 would pan an app for not running under it prior to the release of the golden master. I think joining the developer program implies the tester has enough savvy to know that some apps will lag behind.

 

That said, pretty much all my apps are compatible with iOS 7. The ones that weren't initially got updated quickly. I'm only aware of one of about 70 apps I currently have installed that's still not working properly.

Yeah... I suspect many of those "doesn't work with iOS7" comments on iTunes are from people who are "sharing" or otherwise running a bootleg copy of iOS7 in the first place.  I agree, people in the Developer's Program aren't likely to be that dense as to post negative reviews, considering you should be in that program to develop yourself and you wouldn't want people giving you negative reviews for that same reason!

 

Bottom line...  You need a Developer's account to be entitled to install the iOS7 beta releases.  Any other scenario would be a violation of Apple's developer agreements.

I know they can't, it was a suggestion. But at the end of the day, I dont let the app store reviews sway my decision of wether to buy or not.
