    By virtue of metro being totally flat, rather than anyone being insane enough to copy anything metro related.

    I think the Safari icon looks terrible.

    It's got too much white around it.

    Yeah, I don't get why it looks like a compass. Safari itself is a big improvement.

    The OS is fine in itself. I like the minimal look it's just too buggy but that's fine with it being a beta. I just hope they smooth up the transitions as it feels like it takes longer to get between things as it used to

    I quite like the look of Metro, even if I don't like using it

    It's a simplification of the original icon, which is a compass.

    Just downgraded back to iOS 6.

    Seven is a really promising bit of software with some definite improvements over six, and I await the final version with real enthusiasm. Unfortunately the beta introduced a few niggly problems with some of my most-used apps, so I've had to fall back for now.

    Beta 2 is ready to go on the update screen comes in at just over 200mb.

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    As I use the Developer tools, I have downloaded the iPad link thingmebob through the developer pages, and after opening the file, I cannot see an .ipsw file ... does the .dmg file(s) that I see require to be extracted?

    God, I wish this was a simple process!

    Oh, I am using Windows 8 by the way.

    Oh ... finally!

    You had to extract the .hrs (?) file within the blooming folder.

    Jesus.

    Anyways, got iOS 7 on my iPad and apart from the odd Safari crash or two, it is such a joy to use. The multi-tasking works properly now in that it continues straight off from where you were playing, reading or/and working.

    ... love the new icons too, although I am well aware that it isn't overly favourable at present.

    The wallpaper is also dynamic which not only looks pretty, it is similar to the glittery background used on the PlayStation 3.

    There's much to like about this new iOS and I cannot wait until the final article!

    Any truth to the rumours that iOS 7 is a major battery whore on anything that isn't an iPhone 5 or 2nd Gen iPad Retina?

    I struggle to get my iPhone 4s through a 9 hour work day most of the time so this sounds little worrying.

    I wouldn't worry about it at this stage of proceedings. There are still two and a half months to go before it's released to the public.

    Yeah that's what I assumed, but still, all these dynamic wallpapers and background updates surely aren't going to be kind to battery life. Unless of course you turn them off... which is a bit pointless and naff really.

    Hopefully it's just glitches waiting to be ironed out though.

    Erica Sadun argues that while Apple keep saying the training wheels have to come off, removing borders from a lot of buttons isn't necessarily as intuitive as it sounds.

    But... I think these days we do all know to tap things in third party apps (that use their own, less iOS-y designs) that look like an interaction, because they usually are.

    I think the Back button being a simple arrow was the kind of thing she meant.

    I've also read, I think from Arnold Kim, that the use of light Helvetica lacks contrast and clarity. I don't have it on my devices, what do people think?

    I don't hate the Settings icon like some do, I kind of like the focus on everything within the circle rather than the comparative chaos of the differently positioned cogs before. I wish there was just a nod more tactility or depth to it, but I fully understand that all that stuff is VERBOTEN now.

    I feel like Photobooth should be more obviously a strip of photos. A rectangle with a person in it could be so many things.

    It's Newsstand that I can't abide - it's such an ugly mis-shapen mess of stuff. How it fits into the mostly circular-based grid I don't really get.

    I am using the new iPad, not the new NEW iPad ... and as far as I can tell, the battery is more or less the same - just a shy over nine hours as it usually was on iOS 6.

    As for the Helvetica font, it is perfectly fine albeit admittedly not as bold (as the previous font).

    At the end of the day, all these tiny little niggles shall be ironed out in a couple of months time.

    I like how apple are trying their hands at the long game and are focusing on an entirely new user base. The old look was all gold, pinstripes and polished wood. The new look says "Hey, look at me. I like spring break and cut offs"

    iOS 6 = Donald Trump
    iOS 7 = Snooki

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    @CharlieStCloud you really don't use the developer tools on windows 8 lol if you actually had a mac you'd see the DMG is a disk image (like an ISO) that you mount and the .ipsw is on there. There are utilities to extract it on windows if you look

    Well, I have sorted it out now, but thank you I guess!

    ... I extracted the .dmg file, but on Windows you have to extract another file within the file, hence my mild annoyance earlier this morning.

    I don't have a Mac though because I prefer Windows.

    This will mean very little to most, but the inter-app audio function looks like it could overhaul how I use my iPad for music:

    http://createdigitalmusic.com/2013/06/apple-adds-inter-app-audio-with-not-before-seen-features-to-ios-7/

    Could turn Cubasis from a bit of a scratchpad curio into something much more powerful.

    With the joyous way iTunes organised your library you often had 20 versions of the same cover.

    iPad version looks good but not adding it to mine as playing some games on it dont want it to mess with that.


    Main stuff from beta 2:

    Welcome Screen: iOS 7 beta 2 introduced a new Welcome Screen that asks for an iCloud password, allows users to turn on iMessages and choose associated email addresses, and set up a passcode on the device.

    Voice Memos: The Voice Memos app was missing from the first iOS 7 beta, but with beta 2, the app has returned and is now fully functional.

    Find My iPhone: The Find My iPhone setting in iCloud now offers up new language that specifies that the app will help users "remotely locate, lock, erase, and prevent re-activation" of a lost iPhone.

    Siri: Siri requests seem to load much faster with the new iteration of iOS 7 and there are also male and female voice options available. These can be accessed in the General Settings under the Siri heading, which offers a new Voice Gender option. While male and female voices have been available in other languages, this is the first time English male/female voices can be activated.

    Control Center: Parts of the Control Center have had a slight redesign, with a new clock icon. The icon, which was previously dark, is now a simple clock outline.

    Notifications: Some iOS 7 users were having issues with double notifications, which users report has been fixed in beta 2. Apple's release notes, however, state that some apps "may receive duplicate push notifications or no notification at all."

    Reminders: Reminders has had a slight redesign with a new list layout that is more compact than the previous layout, and a new clock icon next to the search bar will allow users to locate scheduled reminders.

    iCloud: iCloud Backups are now available once again. The first iOS 7 beta did not support automatic backups.

    Spotlight: Searching via Spotlight is much quicker, with results being displayed almost instantaneously with far less of the lag that was present in the first beta.

    Messages: The Messages "Send" button is bold and turns green or blue when text is typed. There's also a new bubble animation shown when messages are sent. Swiping to the left on a message will display time stamps. Group chats in Messages also display contact photos next to texts.

    Music: The music app has seen a number of bug fixes to correct interface errors and other issues. Lock screen album art has also been repaired for the iPhone 4/4S.

    Weather: In the weather app, a new icon on the bottom right of the screen brings up a listing of the weather in all of the cities tracked in the app.

    Multitasking: Swiping up to close out apps works much more smoothly on the iPhone 5 following the update to beta 2.

    iPad Camera: As noted by 9to5Mac, iOS 7 adds an HDR option to the camera on the iPad.
