Release Date: July 24, 2017
Build Number: 15A5327g
Darwin Kernel Version: 17.0.0 Thu Jul 20 19:50:00 PDT 2017; root:xnu-4556.0.0.2.5~1

Compatibility

  • iPhone 5s and later
  • iPad mini 2, iPad (5th Generation), iPad Air and later, iPad Pro and later
  • iPod touch 6th generation

New Features
  • Notification Center now allows the ability to swipe left to right to open a notification. Right to left to present options of View or Clear. Continuing to drag right will open the notification. Continuing to drag left will clear it.
  • AirDrop now has a dedicated settings line item under Settings - General.
  • New icons for Reminders, Contacts, and Notes.
  • Slightly adjusted icons for Stocks, iTunes, Compass, iBooks, Phone, Safari, Home, News, Mail, Weather, Photos and FaceTime
  • New splash page for Photos detailing Live Photos Effects and Editing and New Memories features.

  • New splash page for Notes.
  • New countdown UI for screen recording.
  • Low Power Mode toggle animation in Control Center.
  • New 'Cellular Plans' info added to Settings > Cellular (only confirmed on T-Mobile so far)
  • Wifi icon in the status bar is now bolder
  • Springboard: create Folder behaviour changed. Now it stays on the screen and does not open into the folder just created.
  • You can now save files from Safari to the “on My iPad” section via the share sheet. When you tap over “On my iPad”, the folder will expand, allowing you to select a subfolder to save your file. Until this beta, nothing happened.
  • Activity app tab showing previously completed workouts uses new icons for start and end positions of an outdoor run.

Bug Fixes
  • Content Blockers seem to work as they should.
  • Force touch app icon in home screen no longer triggers wiggle mode if finger is on app icon long enough. Only force touch menu is triggered.
  • Mail filter button now always visible in mail app.
  • Maps now allows deletion of Favorite locations without crashing

Bugs

  • Visual Voicemail still broken on EE (UK)
  • 'On this iPhone' location removed from Files app (bug or intentional?) EDIT: Not removed. This Post explains how to bring it back.
  • Widgets are truncated again. (It may load full widgets after recalling Notification Center a few times)
  • From release notes: Recents list in Phone app will fail to update, so tapping the first entry to re-dial results in dialing the second entry.
  • Third party keyboards do not pick up text shortcuts. This bug is continuing from beta 3.
  • Bluetooth icon still stays lit up as if connected to something.
  • deleting/removing apps from the “recents” side of the dock (iPad) doesn’t work anymore (NEW)
  • Editing the alarm label doesn’t show the (x) to delete text but it’s there.
  • Toolbar for PDF files in Safari Browser not showing up with "Open In <App>" and "More..." buttons
  • Mail app randomly freezes and does not respond to any action. Hard reset is currently the only option to restore its functionality.
  • Text entered into Calendar search bar is white.
  • Music still shuffles automatically with no indication that shuffle mode is either on or off
  • Maps: the lockscreen is still confusing as to whether it's locked or unlocked.
  • Maps: the phone will not always turn the screen on when a new direction is spoken. It also does not turn it back off.
  • Lockscreen: if you are viewing a photo in landscape and lock your phone, when you power the screen on, the lockscreen is half landscape, half portrait. (iPhone 7 Plus)
  • Mail App: Notifications dont show for new mails received in the favorited folders. Notifications only appear for mails received in Inbox folder.

I'm too early :/ will come back in an hour or so to see all the interesting changes. Not making the mistake of updating to beta software again but I'm always interested to see all the nips and tucks.
