Do you mean on the app icon? I'm pretty sure that is just a flicker that's caused from the closely arranged vertical lines that make up the wave.

Yeah, you're probably right.
But is anyone else noticing a half-second or so delay between slide to unlock and the homescreen populating?

no date or time on lockscreen when music is playing.

Time is in the status bar.

I don't know if this was mentioned before, I didn't read through the whole thread, but it seems that now in messages the conversations are named with the "nicknames" you assigned your contacts, if you didn't assign one then it goes to the full name.

Is it just me, or does the Siri overlay
a) Lag a bit (probably the over-done blur!)
b) Have a clearer bit on the right, meaning the blur is not applied consistently on the whole screen?

Either way, transitioning from Siri to the Homescreen looks really good now. As does returning home from multi-tasking. Multi-tasking is also much smoother nad faster. The Parralax effect has been adjusted, it is more apparent on the lock screen now and appears more precise (the effect looks better) on the home screen. However, it looks like the lock screen has a slight delay after pressing the home.lock button before it comes on now?

There's still these bugs:
1. Enter an app in a folder, then multi-task to jump into another app. When pressing the home button, instead of returning to the homescreen it returns to the folder that the original app was in, and the animation is the one where you unlock the iPhone was well. I'm pretty sure it's a bug.
2. When tapping to add a song to a playlist, the music app background turns black briefly.

Really helpful... Thanks... :mad:

If you're using a beta as your daily driver on your phone then what do you expect? If it was still broken in a few months then you can complain.

Yes it must just be the flicker. You'll see the soundwave flicker more easily if you make your apps wiggle in rearrange mode.

BTW the worst icon ever and I'm a fan of most of the new icones.

Seems like the iCloud keychain restore doesn't work. I selected to authenticate with my iCloud passcode and it said it would send a text message to my selected phone number but never received the message so unable to activate it again. Anyone else seen this?

I got this because I first did the OTA to beta 2 where I activated keychain and then decided to do a clean install of beta 2.

Jun 24, 2013, 02:41 PM
I have. And yes, I am aware of how common it is. That said, it's just a pop-up. It doesn't need to be served up by the OS and I doubt that Apple would facilitate such an annoying and obtrusive UI element by providing the framework for it. It's spammy, and frankly I'm surprised it isn't banned or screened out during the app review by now.

A quick Google search tells me this is usually implemented through some third party frameworks, which likely leads to the visual similarity between them.

I will happily eat my hat if I'm incorrect.

For example: http://www.binpress.com/app/irate-prompt-users-to-rate-your-app/616

I think you misunderstood me. I know Apple doesn't put the popup there. That's the dev's choice and there's a lot of complaints about those online.
I was just wondering whether the option to Contact the dev was something new.
No big deal either way ;)

Definitely no big deal! But I did understand you - I wasn't implying that Apple forces the pop-up. But they also do not facilitate it. There is no "show app rating pop-up" call in the SDK.

Jun 24, 2013, 02:47 PM
Can't find a place for Beta 2 bugs so here goes:

Receive a text with a phone number in it. Tap Hold the phone number. Leave the pop-up menu open and lock the phone. Unlock the phone and go to texts. The popup menu is still there. Click cancel on the popup and messages app will be locked up.

I've repeated this a few times and it is consistent, except the messages app crashed/restarted itself one time.

I found the options under Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Short Name (under contacts section)
With these options you can select what you'd like to see when there isn't enough room to show their full name, which was primarily used in group messages, the default for mine was "First, Last Initial" which was super annoying. Also, you can toggle if you'd like nicknames to be displayed instead. I really like this customization! Also, if you don't want short name to be activated, you can toggle that as well.

In beta 1, iTunes Radio had a bad habit of randomly stopping, even though I was on a strong wifi signal. It seemed, that the OS couldn't decide between wifi or LTE. Thus far on beta 2, I haven't had that problem. It has been smooth tune sailing.

Using iPhone 4S, il say that opening and closing folders are not sluggish and laggy supposed to B1 being smooth and multitasking animations still sluggish as before however in B1 animations opening and closing apps that were in the dock were buggy but in B2 that has been dramatically reduced.
Il also add that siri voices like shown at WWDC are not in UK, even on the american settings (altho male/female option is there in US English) or at least, still seems robotic no matter what language.

It looks like the brief lag that happens when you slide to unlock is because the "Voice Memos" app actually has a brief animation of sound waves travelling.. wow.

Seems like overkill.

That's not an intentional animation. That's just what happens when lines spaced very close together like that move on a screen. All of the icons move in when unlocking, but what you think is a brief animation really just amounts to distortion. And it's a very, very bad design choice if you ask me. I like so much of iOS 7, but I haven't warmed up to these icons at all.

Whenever I try to rearrange my icons, my phone crashes then goes back to the lockscreen. I'll hold down on the app icon and then instead of shaking and allowing me to move it, the phone goes to the startup logo screen and then back to the lockscreen.

Also, it appears they've made the limit to pages in a folder 15 (135 apps). After updating to beta 2, apps that overflowed the 15 page limit were taken out of the folder and put into the home screen. I can't completely confirm this because it won't let me move my icons, so I can't try to put them back into the folder, but it seems like the limit is 15 pages.

I meant in the pull down notification screen, when pressing the 'exit' button and then 'clear' button to remove the items from notification screen, it's extremely laggy when adjusting the other notifications to the change. but it's a small price to pay for the overall improvement in speed throughout the UI

my iCloud was apparently trying to download the backup so I couldn't update to Beta 2 until I deleted my iCloud account lol, it's been doing that for a while, every so often a pop up would say "finish restoring from iCloud backup?" or something like that. Maybe that will help with my battery life.

Did you check if the "Voice Feedback" setting is set to "Always" instead of "Handsfree Only"? Because if it's on "Handsfree Only" you will only hear Siri's voice through earphones or other such devices.

I'm hoping they change Calendar on iPad. I get that they are moving away from skeuomorphism but one of my favorite features of the iPad was that the calendar had two pages. Half the screen was say... agenda and half was your day view. You also had the scrubber at the bottom of the screen, etc. Now it looks like a blown up version of the iPhone app. Complete with empty space to the left and right of the day view. I don't need all the fancy leather, I would just like the functionality back. :(

Definitely no big deal! But I did understand you - I wasn't implying that Apple forces the pop-up. But they also do not facilitate it. There is no "show app rating pop-up" call in the SDK.

OMG, you've got issues. The guy clearly meant that the contact dev button on that dialog was new. It wasn't there on any app I've ever been asked to rate before iOS 7 beta either so I can attest to his statement on my personal experience on iOS as well. Besides, he was just trying to show if something he saw was new or not.

unable to delete new york from the weather app. swiping and deleting crashes to springboard.


this was after updating to beta 2 OTA

then resetting all settings and then changing them all back how I wanted them (was trying to fix the missing album art from the landscape mode, which didn't work)

then syncing without my music, then resyncing my music (album art works now)

Edit: after multiple power cycles/reboots, and moving new york up and down in the list in the weather app, it finally decided to delete.

Haven't gotten around to reinstalling iOS 7 yet since I downgraded to 6.1.4, but is Japanese text input working at all again yet? In Beta 1 it couldn't do any sort of conversions, and probably the most obvious sign that things don't work is that the "^_^" button just types a single little happy face instead of letting you choose from a variety of them.

I won't be able to reinstall Beta 2 for another twelve-plus hours, but if anyone's already running it, could you be so kind as to check if the Japanese text input works now?

Bonus question: does bringing up the dictionary via the "Define" popover still lock you into the dictionary popup screen until you force-quit that app?

the dialpad in the phone app no longer shows you bits of your wallpaper when you dial numbers.

No, it's possible to get out of that screen now. But the define feature no longer works. I've attached a screenshot. I don't know why it gives a Japanese section.

One thing I noticed while typing out this post - holding down backspace/delete to delete a bunch of text makes the whole screen scroll up like crazy, you can't even see your text anymore. Very strange, new bugs.

Love the improvements they've made in Beta 2 on my 4S.

Animations are much smoother.
Safari is much more responsive and my music doesn't skip when switching between tabs or open apps.
The lock screen album art issue has now been fixed.
General overall responsiveness has greatly improved.

Issues i've noticed;

Sometimes the camera app launches then crashes. it works when using the shortcut on the lock screen. A restart fixes it.
Sometimes the album art and music info will not appear on the lock screen or in the control center. A restart fixes this.
Sometimes notifications appear behind status bar.
Sometimes the app is stretched right to the top (happened to the phone app) causing the status bar to overlap.
Some apps crash under certain conditions, but it's not consistent. Apps seem to crash more than in beta 1.

Overall i'm really impressed with the improvements they've made. It's a lot more usable.

Roll on Beta 3! :D

I have issues? Because I am disagreeing with him? Wow, thanks for bringing your mature perspective to a polite debate you were not involved in. If you used Google before spouting off your mouth, you could easily discover that these rating pop-ups are third party libraries and not part of iOS. I know he is referring to Contact Dev button specifically.

Apple does not provide the framework for an app rating pop-up, thus any change is coincidental and instituted by the app developer themselves and not iOS 7. Plain and simple. Not sure what you don't get. The Tapatalk apps (from his sample) were coincidentally updated last week as well.

Seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to debate in a thread dedicate to iOS 7 changes.

No female/male choice for Australia

Asking Siri to "turn on torch" results in "OK I turned on Bluetooth" but she understood me fine :confused:

No animated zooming out for folders stored in the dock (Same as Beta 1). 3 of the 4 things in the dock are folders here, and it is very noticeable.

Zooming does appear to be smoother

The nicknames are used in the messages app, but this can be turned off in the Mail Contacts and Calendars section, under Short Name and turn off the Prefer Nicknames.

So far not a bad update, but I'll see how many of the bugs reported last time are still there

Can you turn it on using control center?

Yep I can. A couple of things needed toggling in the past to get working, or they show the wrong value, but after operating they worked fine. Im considering doing a fresh install rather than OTA upgrade to Beta 2 to see if this helps with some issues.

I have found on iPod touch the Dynamic Wallpapers lag the animations of the Lockscreen and Homescreen, also Multitasking lags, I restored and the Dynamic wallpapers still act as such, the regular wallpapers are smooth, even with Parallax on, but I turned it off due to a bug, the wallpaper goes black and changes the dock into a duo tone glass effect. Also Siri's translucency around the edges look rough, and sometimes she doesn't respond in this build I have the new voices however though.

I think safari is a little bit laggy. When you close all the tab. Or open bookmarks tab on the iphone 5. In beta 1 safari is very smooth ? Everyone notice this ?

I have issues? Because I am disagreeing with him? Wow, thanks for bringing your mature perspective to a polite debate you were not involved in. If you used Google before spouting off your mouth, you could easily discover that these rating pop-ups are third party libraries and not part of iOS. I know he is referring to Contact Dev button specifically.

Apple does not provide the framework for an app rating pop-up, thus any change is coincidental and instituted by the app developer themselves and not iOS 7. Plain and simple. Not sure what you don't get. The Tapatalk apps (from his sample) were coincidentally updated last week as well.

Seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to debate in a thread dedicate to iOS 7 changes.

Thanks for proving how mature you are and how you clearly always have to be right. Instead of debating it, why not just answer his question politely instead of the clearly condescending manner in which your reply was.

Why do people online feel the need to be snotty and one-up each other, constantly? Can you just try being nice, and getting on? Be humble, be patient and take the time to explain things calmly and kindly, instead of being supercilious, reactionary and over-dramatising everything.

It's nice to be nice, and makes everyone feel better :)

Maybe somebody can correct me if I am wrong but I am blown away at how good the Spotlight search has become in Beta 2.

In Beta 1 on my iPhone 5 it was super slow and I had to actually hit enter before it would search. In Beta 2 it searches while I am typing, but what I find amazing is how fast it finds everything. As an example, I searched for "Waze" and it naturally brought up the App in the search but also almost instantaneously brought up every email that I have ever received with Waze in the subject including a Waze Password reset email from November 25, 2011. That search was reaching back into iCloud because of course I don't have email on my device from 2011.

For me this is one of the single biggest advantages over Android and most impressive features of iOS 7.

the calendar app is still useless!!

still no dots on the days with things booked.

Yep - I can't believe they didn't fix this one.

It's gotta be addressed before GM surely?


Is picking a song as an alarm still broken? Sorry if I missed it being mentioned..

Yes it still doesn't work unfortunately.

Really miss it as I like to pick a new tune from the collection to vary the alarm now n' again.


. . . - Reminders has nicer cards and looks less experimental overall . . .

Thank you for starting the thread - some great info.

Apologies but can't agree with you on the changes to Reminders though.

On Beta 1 when you were entering a reminder it had When? Where? and something else underneath all on the screen. I liked that it was all together and easy to enter.

Also the Scheduled Tab seems to have gone. Anyone know if you can get it back please?

I do like that Reminders are now showing in the Notifications dropdown, however.

Cheers.


they added a arrow to swipe to unlock on the lockscreen

Unfortunately not showing up for me on a UK 4S.

the dialpad in the phone app no longer shows you bits of your wallpaper when you dial numbers.

instead it shows you bits of the translucent wallpaper you see when you get a notification on the lock screen for example.

cleaner implementation but the beta 1 version had a lot more magic to it.

Can someone post a picture of this? I really like the visual of having the wallpaper when you pressed the button. And is it the same for the pass code buttons?Hope they bring it back. :(

Beta 2 seems overall worse to me.

One of my favorite features was the "Define" feature. In b1 you couldn't close out of the definition. Now you can close out of it but no definition! All I see is "English" and "Japanese". No idea why on Earth I'd want both an English and Japanese definition by default.

No one has made one of these yet, so I'm feeling a little risky and thought I'd do it. (Don't get your panties in a knot if I'm doing something wrong :D)

Mine's still downloading. I'm glad the gears still spin! And over 200MB is a lot for an OTA update - what could this mean?

Update - Changes So Far:

- new Siri voice
- Reduce Motion is know referred to as "Parallax"
- Voice Memos are back: now featuring incorrect sound waves (you'd think Apple engineers might take a physics class or two?)
- New Messages.app animations : no more waddling into the thread
- Tapping on a calendar event in the Today section of Notification Center now actually takes you to that event in your calendar.
- No more status bar funkorama in old apps
- iCloud Keychain is now adoption during setup*
- A brief explanation of iMessage and FaceTime are now provided Turing setup
- iPad beta is now available!*
- Legibility of text on some buttons has increased*
- Better album art display on lock screen*
- More appropriate animation for entering/leaving an app when the icon is not on the particular page where left off
- New animation upon photo deletion
- Social icons (Facebook, Twitter etc) in settings have been updated.*
- The FaceTime app is now black & blue with a much better blurry front camera background (meaning it's actually usable now)*
- Removed the hideous default wallpaper
- I'm not sure where these asterisks are coming from******
- Improved text shadowing and display on home screen*
- Swipe to go back now works in apps like Photos and Music
- iCloud backup now appears to be working- Pulling right to left on message bubbles displays time stamps (or a naked lady... apparently?)
- New pinchy photo physics (thanks for grabbing my attention)*
- New (I'm not sure what to call the Cover Flow replacement) pinching animation
- Artist's name is displayed in place of no album art in Music.app
- When tapping the button at the top right of Now Playing to view the album track list, the name of the artist and album, as well as the art is at the top of the list
- Messages notifications on the lock screen now display the "slide to reply" text underneath
- Swiping to delete songs is now possible in the Cover Flow replacement*
- The user is notified if their pass code is too weak
- Contact's nicknames now appear in Messages.app (if one is set)
- Reminders has nicer cards and looks less experimental overall
- The Messages typing bubble (��) appears to be slightly different
- Traffic Conditions may now appear in Notification Center
- Images of contacts in group conversations now appear beside the bubbles
- Newsstand now uses the system wallpaper

I just noticed this one:

When sorting by artist, you now get the artist's iTunes photo instead of a random album cover. It's still shows album covers for artists without a custom iTunes page, I'm assuming.

Unfortunately, now a lot of my music looks like the same group of 4 or 5 dudes wearing slightly different clothes.

Jun 24, 2013, 09:31 PM
First time I go into Newstand, I get transparency showing the background but then when going into the app moments later, it loses that! Then, after a while I'll check again and I'm back to transparency.

unable to delete new york from the weather app. swiping and deleting crashes to springboard.


this was after updating to beta 2 OTA

then resetting all settings and then changing them all back how I wanted them (was trying to fix the missing album art from the landscape mode, which didn't work)

then syncing without my music, then resyncing my music (album art works now)

Edit: after multiple power cycles/reboots, and moving new york up and down in the list in the weather app, it finally decided to delete.

Yeah I couldn't remove "New York" too lol.. I realized that you can't delete the last one or it will crash.

Beta 2 has to be one of the worst beta 2 iOS I have ever experienced, The lag is mixed with speed and in beta 1 I didn't have many issues with my iPod crashing, now in beta 2 I am experiencing ALOT more crashing, and it's all due to SpringBoard apparently, after glancing through my crash logs, SpringBoard is the main culprit, when pressing the home button to see the lock screen there is lag there as well, even though in beta 1 it was smoother.

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but when a text makes mention of a certain day, like "friday" or "friday night", beta 1 would underline those words, seemingly to allow you to schedule something in the calendar, but clicking on the word never did anything. Now, when you click on the underlined text, you are presented with the options to "create event", "show in calendar", and "copy". Unfortunately, tapping on any of those options results in the messages app crashing. At least we're one step closer!:)
