It has not been a good summer for iOS 7. Apple’s mobile operating system for iPhones and iPads, which is still in beta, has been critiqued from the moment it was announced, plagued with bugs, seen its developer portal breached and briefly shut down and finally surprised many would-be beta users by locking them out of their devices without warning.
