Continuing the tradition from previous betas....

Post any bugs, new features, or changes in iOS 7.1 beta 2 that you notice compared to beta 1 and/or iOS 7.0.4. I'll keep this post updated with everyone's findings

New features / changes:
- Dark keyboard option removed
- Settings has separate section on main screen for Passcode and Touch ID options
- List view in Calendar
- Slightly faster animations
Tones bug fixed that caused every tone to be the tri-tone sound



Bugs:

animations are "perfectly" smooth now, & are even faster over beta 1 & actually are as fast as they should ever be..this is my max, any faster is too fast & then people will cry again this time about "its too fast its making me sick!!11"

i never had a problem with 7.0.4's animation speed but..as for dark keyboard everyone should complain about THAT, so demand puts that feature back, it was OPTIONAL and both options pleased everyone, why did they take that out...

Phone does a weak little single vibration when receiving a text message while the app is open.

When screen is locked and turned off, it does a normal double buzz and a ding.

The calendar now has a month view that allows you to view the appointments on any given day, similar to how it was in previous versions of iOS.

I miss the dark keyboard, but this calendar is good!

People are saying that it has been improved, but not solved

It's too early to tell if it has been solved, but it seems to be better. I have been using beta 2 for the last two hours and Safari seems faster and more stable. I had no crashes so far.

Can we change the text tones to the new ones again or are we still left with the old tri-tone?

Only bugs I have noticed so far are -

Some playlists (I am using iTunes Match) are not showing up on devices. When pressed eg. Recently played- the next screen shows no songs and just a "no content" message.

The new message vibrate seems stuck on one little vibration even though it shows the default (Staccato) is selected.

Everything else seems very fast dispite the odd frame drop.

The "dark keyboard option" always sounded very un-apple to me - most probably a test tool for the beta only, never intended for public consumption.

The keyboard style is a UI design choice, and those choices are generally made by Apple, not the end user.

Right here
Did a clean install from B1 to B2. B2 feels much tighter. LOVE the calendar. So cool that apple is tweaking the calendar. I'm glad that they are taking their time with 7.1 and it shows. 7.0.4 feels like a beta, not 7.1.

Is that delay before you can swipe on the home screen after closing an app still there?
