iOS 7.1 Beta 3 now available, here are its new features
Just a few hours ago Apple released the new iOS 7.1 Beta 3 exclusively for developers. This new version is released under build number 11D5127c.
In case you are a developer or are listed as one and have iOS 7.1 Beta 2 installed on your device, you can upgrade to Beta 3 in two different ways:
- Through updates via OTA (Settings – General – Software Update).
- Go to the Apple Developer Center and download iOS 7.1 Beta 3 in .ipsw format and install it-update it through iTunes.
The new beta fixes some issues with the operation of iCloud , iMessage, the native Music application and the Safari browser, as well as fixing some minor bugs and improving its stability.
With the arrival of iOS 7.1 Beta 3, we had the opportunity to test it and found some new features and innovations , although these were unfortunately not very revolutionary.
Discover all the new features that iOS 7.1 Beta 3 brings to us
The first change we could see as soon as we started the device was the change in the user interface of the phone’s dialer. If we look at it, the green rectangle for calling has been changed to a green circle with the image of a phone.
If you are using the iOS option to make the text on your device bold, you probably won’t notice this change, but for everyone else, we’ve seen how the Shift and Delete buttons on the keyboard have become clearer and have changed from black to white .
Another change we have been able to appreciate has been the camera icon when we find ourselves writing a message, mail… In this case, the camera icon has been slightly darkened eliminating the clear features of the camera icon.
If we go to the native music application, we have noticed the modification of the buttons for “repeat song” and “random” . The buttons are now much better identified and have been filled in with red.
When you want to turn off the device, by holding down the Sleep button, you’ll see that the user interface has been renewed. What do you think?
A new function has been added within Settings – General – Accessibility – Increase Contrast . This new feature is called “Reduce White Spots”, which will make the screen less bright and less aggressive to our eyes.
Finally, we have seen that iOS 7.1 Beta 3 comes with some modifications to the Parallax effect , which is causing so many problems among users. Now, you can independently activate the effect or deactivate it when setting a new image as wallpaper.
As you may have noticed, iOS 7.1 Beta 3 hasn’t brought many new features , as the guys from iPhoneincanada have said, but fortunately it’s not the final version, so we still hope that Apple will surprise us with some new features.
