Apple’s iOS train keeps rolling as developers get 7.1 beta
Last week saw Apple deliver the very latest iOS 7 update, iOS 7.0.4. Lacking any major improvements, it was a largely forgettable release, focusing mainly on a few bugfixes. What about something a little more impactful? Enough with this 7.0.x series – today we see Apple pushing its platform ever forwards with the distribution if iOS 7.1 beta to its developer community.
And truth be told: we may be moving on up in build number, but it’s still a lot of bug fixes. It’s more than just that, though, and you’ll also see some tweaks to the Notification Center display, some small branding changes, as well as new Photo Stream settings, letting you automatically upload burst shots. Switching bold text on or off can now be done without the need to reboot, and there’s a new dark keyboard option in the UI.
There’s a real momentum to these recent iOS updates, and while 7.1 is just hitting beta now, its formal release probably isn’t too far off, either – maybe not by the end of the month, but a few weeks’ time sounds reasonable.
