Update Contains Fixes and Improvements

This update contains bug fixes as well as improvements. Developers who want the update can now download iOS 7 Beta 2 through the native Settings application. There was a warning for developers and users that the second beta “should only be deployed on devices dedicated for iOS 7 beta software development.”

The beta software was not intended for the general public.  It was designed mainly for developers who wanted to get a feel for the software so they could create new mobile applications to go with it.

AppleInsider added, “While the first iOS 7 beta was limited to iPhone and iPod touch, the new second beta also adds support for the full-size iPad and iPad mini. While iPhone and iPod touch users running beta 1 can download through Software Update, iPad users will need to upgrade from iOS 6 through iTunes on a Mac or PC. Though the Settings icon has changed in iOS 7, the gears included still rotate while iOS 7 beta 2 is downloading. Apple gave developers the first beta of iOS 7 two weeks ago at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. That was also the first time the world, outside of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s team, got to see a major design overhaul for the platform.”

Biggest Highlight Of Apple iOS 7

Unfortunately, we don’t know of the specific changes regarding the update but we do know that iOS 7 has a lot of upgrades and new features. One of the biggest highlights of iOS 7 is the new design which is more simplified than previous iOS systems. It also features improved Safari, photos, AirDrop, and iTunes Radio. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) wanted to give their fans something new and this is it.

The iOS 7 release will be available to all users some time this fall.
