Today, I also have received many questions from users like you who are using iOS 7 beta and want to upgrade to official iOS 7. Maybe you don’t know the truth that to date, Apple does not allow beta users to directly upgrade to the final version. That why you cannot see the update check report in iTunes

or on your iPhone via OTA method

Furthermore, the official iOS 7 has the same release code with iOS 7 Gold Master version, so we can confirm that there is no change in official iOS 7.

Now, you’re in the beta and want to upgrade to the final version, do switch your iPhone to DFU mode, plug into iTunes and press “Restore” button. This maybe complex to you, so we will try another simple solution that we will download the official iOS 7 firmware and install it via iTunes.

To get the official iOS 7 firmware from Apple, click on links below based on your devices. Here are list of iOS 7 firmwares for Apple products:

 

The most important thing you should know is that iOS 7 official only works with iTunes version 11.1. So when you are downloading iPhone firmware (approx. 1GB), save up your time by upgrading your iTunes into 11.1 version (that Apple also launched with iOS 7 today). If not, you will get this message when trying connect iOS 7 with earlier iTunes versions.
