NEW iOS 7 Beta 1 Features, In-depth Demo & Review
It's currently possible update to iOS 7 without having your iPhone's UDID registered in a developer account.
We were first alerted to this by iClarified reader Will Peterson who performed the update on two iPhone 5s. We have tested and confirmed it working on the iPhone 4S, a brand new iPhone 5, and an additional iPhone 5.
To perform the update you must get a hold of the iOS 7 ipsw, press and hold the Option key (Shift for Windows) and click Update in iTunes. Select the iOS 7 ipsw from the popup window to install.
It's unclear why this is working. Only iPhone devices registered by developers are supposed to be able to install beta firmware. Perhaps Apple took down this check since its servers are being flooded at the moment.

This is a pre-release version of iOS 7 beta for iPhone and iPod touch. Devices updated to iOS 7 beta can not be restored to earlier versions of iOS.
