The change log between each iOS 7 beta has shrunk release-by-release. The latest beta is no exception with just a handful of small changes.

Weighing in at only 13.5MB, beta 6 fixes an emergency issue with iTunes in the cloud whereby music downloads refused to finish, or worse, downloaded the wrong track:

This update addresses an issue with iTunes in the Cloud, where some purchases may download or play unexpected items. If you have any devices running previous versions of iOS 7 beta, you must:
1. Install iOS 7 beta 6
2. Install the ResetMusicAndVideosLibraries configuration profile
3. From Settings > Music, tap the Reset Media Library button
4. Restart the device

The beta also makes a few small changes to fonts, Siri and Find My iPhone:

  • Tweaks to font line heights
  • Activation Lock is enabled by default in Find My iPhone. When transferring to a new device, the user must now log out of iCloud and also disable Activation Lock in the Settings app
  • An updated build of Siri for U.S. English, French, and German
  • When taking a screenshot, active touches are no longer disabled
