When iOS 7 was unveiled during Apple's WWDC keynote earlier this month, it was consequently followed by the release of iOS 7 beta 1 for developers. Strangely enough, the first iOS 7 beta firmware was only released for the iPhone and iPod touch version, with the iPad version nowhere in sight. Good news for developers who wish to test iOS 7 on their iPad because Apple just released iOS 7 beta 2 which now includes support for the popular tablet.
The iOS 7 beta 2 update is about 200MB in size. So what can you expect from iOS 7 beta 2? Well, you can expect a good deal of performance improvements and bug fixes. There may be a few cosmetic changes and new features thrown in but it's still too early to tell. Perhaps the biggest change to iOS 7 beta 2 is that it now supports the iPad. The second pre-release version supports the following iPad models: iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4 and the iPad mini.
If you have been closely following the iOS platform, you will know that iOS 7 is an entirely different beast due to its radical redesign and the number of new features included (most of which are jailbreak inspired). iOS 7 is definitely the biggest change that happened to the platform ever since its introduction back when the first iPhone was launched.
As you may all know with all beta versions released by Apple, iOS beta 2 is only available to registered iOS developers. In order to become a developer, you will need to sign-up an account at Apple's iOS Dev Center. An account will cost you an annual fee of $99 which is definitely a worthy investment for iOS developers and hardcore fans. Although there are unofficial ways that will enable you to install iOS betas. But that's a different story altogether.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
