Apple has seeded the second beta of iOS 7 to developers this morning. The update comes exactly two weeks after the initial version of the new firmware was released, following the company’s annual WWDC keynote.
The change log hasn’t been released yet, but the consensus seems to be that this update is likely more about speed and performance improvements than about adding major new features or making significant changes…
iOS 7 itself, though, is nearly a complete departure from its predecessor. We’ve spent that last two weeks taking an in-depth look at many of the changes Apple has made, from UI to new features, which you can see here.
If you’re a registered developer, you can grab beta 2 by opening the Settings app on your iOS device running iOS 7 beta 1 and tapping General and then Software Up. Or I’m sure it will be available in the dev center shortly.
We’re currently installing the update ourselves, and will report back with any new stuff we find. So stay tuned. And as always, we welcome you to let us know if we missed anything by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: As we continue to dig through the new information in iOS 7 beta 2 this morning, we’ll be listing any changes we find below:
It appears that the stock Voice Memos app has been re-added in beta 2
Beta 2 is now available for iPad! Apple hasn’t, until today, released an iOS 7 beta compatible with its tablet line. It’s believed that because of the software’s major redesigned, it wasn’t finished in time for WWDC.
