Want an early peek at iOS 7? Here's how.

The launch of Apple's iOS 7 will likely coincide with the launch of the next iPhone. But why not take the operating system for a test-spin today?

Earlier this month, at the WWDC event in San Francisco, Apple took the wraps off iOS 7, the latest iteration of its mobile operating system. iOS 7 looks pretty different from iOS 6: The font is slimmer, the icons are flatter, the colors are different, and the 3-D shading is drastically pared down. There's also a centralized control panel, which slides up from the bottom of the lock screen, and lets you toggle Airplane Mode, iTunes tracks, and so on. 

The Jony Ive-designed operating system is expected to launch this fall, probably in conjunction with the release of the new iPhone. (TechCrunch has assembled a useful guide of which devices will be compatible with iOS 7.) Want to take iOS7 for an early test-drive? Well, you've got a couple of options. One is to download the beta developers' version of the OS, although the beta is reported to be pretty buggy and unstable, as betas usually are.
