It’s only been a week since Apple introduced iOS 7 at the 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, but even though the public release date for iOS 7 is still months away -- Apple promised iOS 7 would release in the fall -- developers and those who have purchased a developer’s license through Apple have already gotten a chance to test the iOS 7 beta, which is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

As rumors predicted, iOS 7 is a major visual makeover on top of a features-heavy iOS build, which seamlessly combines the minimalist style of Apple's Jony Ive with the familiar elegance of the iOS ecosystem. We've been able to play around with the features in iOS 7 beta for a bit now, having downloaded and installed the iOS 7 beta onto an old iPhone 4S laying around, so please check out this whopping set of 87 screenshots of iOS 7 for your education, for your enjoyment or perhaps to prepare yourself for what it'll be like to use iOS 7 when it sees its release date this fall.
