I actually really like that. It's going to make my nights out lazier... "oh your at XYZ? ...hell that's 45 minutes away. Pass." haha /lazy

And the sound is somewhat lower for that notification too it seems. Hopefully it's by design and not some sort of a "bug" that will be "fixed" (by getting it back to how it worked before).

How about going to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > then just shutting off Short Name??? God. No body looks in settings these days.

Go into the Accessibility settings and make sure 'Increase Contrast' is Off.

Today

Has anyone else noticed that in the today part of notification center it now tells you how far you are away from places you would normally be at that time. For instance it tells me how long it would take me to drive to work because it knows I am usually there. Is this new?

New in iOS 7, but been there since beta 1.

Ugh, the phone app is getting even uglier!!!! I miss the black phone UI. The white one is ok I guess, but that new one is fugly! Ugh! It reminds me of the old phones we used back in the 80's (with cords and everything).

I'll bet that you did update without realizing it.
i'll take that bet!

give me a break. you really think someone who develops ios software is incompitant enough not to realize how and when they updated an app? get out of here. not all of us pirate ios beta builds off the interwebs. some of us actually get them from apple for doing...guess what...beta testing...

i'm sure you can find this on your own if you are a registered developer, but apple specifically states you can not use beta software to publish apps to the app store. since you need xcode 5 dp (which is beta) to deploy ios 7 (which is also beta) apps...i think you get where i am going with this.

I haven't really paid attention to Siri, so I don't know how long this had been around, but if you activate Siri and tap the help button, you can scroll up to see what you asked it last.

Read through your convo, and first..You do know that iOS 7 includes an auto update feature, meaning an app can update on your phone with you doing nothing to initiate it, right?

And also, several app updates have come through with mention of iOS 7 in the release notes. Since you're a developer, you must know then that there is a difference between implementing iOS 7 APIs (which you cannot do until iOS 7 is officially released), and optimizing current code to fix your app crashing on devices running iOS 7.

And, specifically regarding eBay, it crashed, then, one day, was updated and began to work. There were tons of posts immediately after the app update to let others know that the app now worked. And, guess what, this was mid-week, AKA was not caused by a beta update.

So..
