Apple has officially released iOS 7 beta 2, and is now available for download. More details and where to download it from, can be found right after the break.
The initial release of the dev version of iOS 7 was made available to developers immediately after this year’s Worldwide Developer Conference keynote speech on June 10th. The initial beta release represented the first opportunity for those who will be making software for the operating system and also get hands-on experience with the radically revamped software.
The release time frame of iOS 7 beta 2 fits in pretty well with previous pre-release iOS software, most of which seem to see the second test version released approximately two weeks after the introductory keynote speech. Active developers who have access to the iOS Developer Program have been able to get a first-hand look at the new visuals and performance of Cupertino’s new mobile OS and will now be hoping that the flurry of future releases will see the majority of bugs and issues being ironed out.
Those who follow the iOS world will know that the jump from iOS 5 to iOS 6 was seen as a pretty major milestone in the development of iOS. The introduction of iOS 7 definitely changes everything, and seems to blow those changes out of the water by revamping all visuals and introducing new animations and slick interface navigation methodologies. This second beta of iOS 7 is now available to download from the iOS Dev Center.
The Cupertino company has also made iOS 7 beta 2 available as an over-the-air update for those who already have it installed on their test devices. It may take a little while for the update to propagate through to the various supported territories, but it should begin showing up at any time now.
Also, we will update this post accordingly as we come across new bits and pieces regarding iOS 7 beta which we previously didn’t know about. It’s fair to say at this point that the second beta is no more than a bug fix and performance enhancement release.
