    Two weeks after Apple released the first beta version of iOS 7 following its unveiling at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple has just released a second beta for testing. The update is currently available through Apple's over-the-air updating system on iOS devices, and should be posted soon to the iOS Dev Center.

    The beta 2 appears as build 11A4400f, up from the previous 11a4372q.

    iOS 7 is scheduled for release in the fall of this year, undoubtedly alongside new iOS hardware. Apple's iPhone, iPad, and iPad mini will all be due for updates in the latter portion of this year, and if past history is any indication iOS 7 should be made available to the public just a few days before the launch of the next-generation iPhone.

    Updates on changes in beta 2:

    - Beta 2 is available not only for iPhone and iPod touch, but also iPad and iPad mini. The first beta released alongside the WWDC keynote did not include official iPad support, with Apple announcing that iPad versions of iOS 7 would follow in the coming weeks.

    - In line with previous hints, the Voice Memos app has returned in beta 2.

    - The new male and female Siri voices showed off by Apple at WWDC are now available in English.

    - Multiple users are reporting that Siri is much faster than in beta 1.

    - In addition to iOS beta 2, Apple has also released Xcode 5 Developer Preview 2 and a second beta of Apple TV Software version 5.4.

    This couldn't have come at a better time! The bugs and amount of broken things was getting long in the tooth... I hope this fixes a lot.

    File size looks rather big for a beta update, no? Must imply some fixes. :)

    I thought the initial install was rather large too, over 1.1 GB for the iPhone 5.


    Hopefully it address some of those nasty bugs, crashing and lag

    For a beta no, if this were a public release, then yes it would be rather large.

    Preparing Update...

    I honestly don't mind the icons not being updated in this beta, if the crashes and alignment bugs are fixed then I'm satisfied.
