iOS 7.1 beta 2 released, comes with miscellaneous changes and improvements

Screen Shot 2013-12-13 at 3.06.31 PMApple has just pushed a new version of iOS 7.1 to developers, making this the second release of the newest operating system. iOS 7.1 beta 2 says it contains “bug fixes and improvements.” Those that have already installed today’s release say that it includes faster animations (even more so than what beta 1 brought), a new “Touch ID & Passcode” section in the main Settings app view, which means you no longer have to dig into Settings > General > Touch ID & Passcode in order to access those settings, and also the sounds bug has been fixed (beta 1 made all the new sounds default to the Tritone we have all come to know and love). Here is a list of the new things:

– Faster animations
– New list view Calendar layout
– Option to show button borders
– No more dark keyboard option
– Control Center has a bouncier opening animation
– New iPad wallpapers

There isn’t too much more, other than maybe some minor improvements from things that were wrong in beta 1, such as misaligned text in Notification Center on the iPad. Aside from that, it is mostly API changes and developer-side changes, which also included a new Xcode developer preview and a new Apple TV software release as well. No one is really sure when iOS 7.1 will drop publicly, but usually the first x.1 update to new iOS versions includes some neat features, so maybe we have yet to see what else is coming.

What do you think? Looking forward to iOS 7.1? What are you hoping it includes? Let us know in the comments or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.

    My icloud tabs no longer works anymore after iOS7, also why has no one mentioned that when you try to set a custom wallpaper it says drag and scale depending on the picture you can’t move it anymore why is this?

    When I get a call when my phone is locked, I don’t have the red decline button. They need to fix that.

    They need to sort out Touch ID so it recognises your fingerprints for more than just a few hours!!
    That’s if it is a software related problem and not hardware! I have been told by the Genius Bar at my local Apple Store that as it recognises my fingerprints initially on set-up,that it is working okay yet i keep having to rescan them as it won’t last long!!!
