No flash light or calculator in control centre? :confused:

I guess we'll have to wait and see on that. a bit small, should take up more of the screen.

Ok, but nothing stopping them adding a calculator on there.

People expect flash to make an appearance on at least one of the ipads this fall so again time will tell.

Again, problem with apple is that ios always tend just to be ported onto the ipad rather than optimised. control centre for instance doesn't look well implemented so far in this beta.

Yes, you need to be a registered developer to download it, this applies to all devices, so the UDID for the ipad needs to be added to the developers account

Swiping up from the bottom brings up Control Center. Using 4 fingers on an iPhone is rather difficult, at least for my fingers, though when I tried it still brings up control center.

they could easily implement 2 finger swipe.

i think they'll do that next year.

That might get annoying, a lot of apps, mainly games, allow 2 finger swipping, which could in turn bring up the multitasking, or whatever it does in iOS7 , everytime

If you do 4 fingers from the top downwards on the homescreen, it'll bring up search; if you do 4 fingers from the bottom upwards on the homescreen or any app then it'll bring up multitasking.

:( Hope it's a bug.

Lots of graphical bugs; lots of animations; that handy swipe back and forward thing on the iPhone is present, but very inconsistent -- it's present in safari, but not in settings, which I understand because the settings panel isn't fullscreen but it would be nice to have.

Nooo, I hope it's just not finished, though I am fearful since Ive tends to remove things deemed "unnecessary". The bookmark bar is one of the two reasons I choose Safari over Chrome on iOS (the other is speed).

Will switch permanently to Chrome if they don't bring it back when beta is over.

You don't have to use 4 fingers for Spotlight, it works just like the iPhone version. One finger will do just fine.

Is anyone else disappointed with the Music app? It seems ... like a scaled up iPhone Music app.

I much prefer the remote app style to this:

Also some of the pinch to zoom in on photos, is gone, apart from moments; makes it disjointed getting from one photo to the collections. You pinch out, then try to pinch again, but can't so tap the back button.

I hadn't had a chance to take a look at the Music app, but ugh, thats pretty bad. Thats the one achilles heel of the iPad, they have a device that could have this amazing music app that was like a touch iTunes, but instead it always gets a scaled up iPhone app. One can only hope that this is one of the things that will change and improve over the course of the beta.

iOS 7 actually personally looks better on the iPad. Things look cleaner and smoother. (Sadly it's laggy at the moment and doesn't actually run smoother!)

Finally notification centre takes up the whole screen!

Annoying that the bookmark is gone in safari...the only reason I use safari over Chrome is because of it..

Yeah, trying iCab now.
Looks a lot like Safari and has a bookmarks toolbar.

Hopefully Apple will fix it in the next beta.

I am on my mini, but kind of regret it. Everything works ok, but it's slow and choppy, just not the polished feel you expect from Apple. I knew its a beta and don't mind going back to unjailbroken iOS 6, do I thought I'd give it a shot. I'll give it another day or two and decide to stay or go back until a more polished beta.

Will miss iRadio if I go back, and control center, and the new Photos app:). And I like the look too, just most apps look funny when compared to new new look of iOS 7.

I must say that iOS 7 on iPad is currently very disappointing. It's everything Apple mocked in the past about Android tablets and how they don't scale the OS and apps properly for the tablet screen.

Notification Center and Siri look too blown up for my taste, and just don't utilize the space properly. Multitasking is the worst to be honest, because a) it only shows 1 and a half apps per screen and b) some apps are in portrait, and other apps are upside down, so it's currently a mess. Multitasking on iPad should be something like Mission Control on OS X. Apps like Photos and Music look scaled up iPhone apps to be honest, which is worrying if they don't change them in future betas.

Control Center is proving to be a bit problematic with games like Fruit Ninja as some swipes bring up Control Center accidentally.

I think iOS 7 on iPhone is fine, if a bit unrefined. But iOS 7 on iPad has a much more major problem in my opinion, which is utilization. They must find better ways to implement some of the features for the iPad's bigger screen.

I loved it until I found out the app "Marvin" won't work until the official release of iOS 7 (at least that's what they say on their Facebook page), and since I use that app daily to read books I had to revert back to iOS 6, but other than rendering one of my important apps useless, I really liked the feel of it on my iPad.

I think it's supposed to, the option is still in Settings, but it doesn't work.
