Apple launches iOS 7 beta 2 version

Apple launches iOS 7 beta 2 version

I was able to play with Apple's iOS 7 beta version on my iPhone last week, and I can really tell the difference. Apart from the 3D-like UI, I also find the Android-ish Control Center and Notifications Center to be very nice and useful.

So when Apple launched the beta 2 version today, we were really thrilled. iOS 7 Beta 2 is now available via Apple's over-the-air updating system as well as at the iOS Dev Center.

Appearing now as build 11A4400f, beta 2 is now able to support tablets, and by that we mean the iPad and the iPad mini. 9to5Mac has a bunch of photos showing beta 2 on the iPad.

The photos here and above reveals iOS 7 on the iPad. The icons are now different and you can also view the nifty control center. Of course, it wouldn't be an update without the bug fixes and enhancements. Additionally, BGR came up with a list of improvements available on beta 2. They are listed below:

  • Voice Notes app is back
  • Messages now shows message sending properly, and delivered and read notifications are properly spaced.
  • New Exchange logo in Mail
  • Voicemail now works
  • Traffic option in Notification Center
  • iTunes & App Store settings are now combined in Settings
  • Much more responsive in general
  • More easy to read notification drawer, lighter effects, and better close button.
  • Updated opacity / color in Folders background
  • Safari UI enhancements
  • Stronger Wi-Fi password suggestions for Personal Hotspot

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
