Apple iPhone iOS7 Beta 2 Available to Devs

Currently downloading Beta 2 of iOS7.  Will let you know what differences I find.

The first thing of note is that when you start downloading the update on the device, the Settings Gear Icon revolves, which is quite novel.

  • VOICE MEMOS HAVE RETURNED!
  • Support for more iOS Devices
  • Angry Birds Friends still doesn’t work!
  • New Siri Voices – male and female sections
  • UI tweaks to Control Centre – new animated clock
  • New button in Weather app accesses all cities
  • Reminders app revamped
  • Avatars in iMessage Chats
  • New Find My iPhone Icon
  • Tweaked Lock Screen Music Controls
  • Panorama Camera UI tweaked a bit
  • STREAM PURCHASED CONTENT FROM THE VIDEOS APP
  • YOU CAN MANUALLY UPDATE YOUR APPS AGAIN BY TURNING OFF FEATURE IN SETTINGS > ITUNES & APP STORES

Petty annoyances

  • Smule Magic Piano still crashes a lot
  • Angry Birds Friends doesn’t work at all
  • In Messages, sometimes you have to shut down the app completely in order to go back and delete a message, as there’s no ‘back’ function
