Two weeks after WWDC 2013, Apple has released the 2nd beta of iOS 7 with support now for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
Apple has rolled out the 2nd beta of iOS 7 exactly two weeks after their annual WWDC conference. The star of this release is support for the iPad, something not shown at WWDC this year. The 1st beta only had support for the iPhone and iPod Touch, but Apple now has released a version for the iPad. The beta version for iPad is quite similar to the one for iPhone and iPod Touch, but elements such as Control Center and Notification Center has a design specifically suited for the iPad.
iOS 7 Beta 2 brings some new changes to the system. It now includes the new Siri female and male voice for the USA Voice option. This was shown at WWDC two weeks ago, but was not present in the 1st beta. As well, the Voice Memos application has returned.
Apple has stressed that the beta “should only be deployed on devices dedicated for iOS 7 beta software development.” The prerelease software is not intended for use among the general public. But that hasn’t stopped many eager people to jump the gun and access the beta early. This is an issue many tech bloggers are stressing to their viewers, and we recommend not to install the beta unless you are using it for developmental purposes.
iOS 7 is Apple’s newest update on their iOS software. It’s an extensive change, and is described as the “biggest change to iOS since the original launch of the iPhone.” Be sure to check out our overview of the beta here.
