    What do you guys think the iOS 7 beta 3 will bring? Stability fixes, battery life improvements, bug fixes? I'm so excited! Lol

    I'm not sure what WILL happen, but I'm hoping they revert the lock screen music controls back to how it worked in ios 6. Another thing is maybe tweaking the unlocking mechanism on the lock screen. Right now it's too sensitive and can be done anywhere on the screen as opposed to ios 6 when there was a dedicated place for it. Other than that, just more minor bug fixes I suppose :D

    I hope b3 gives us folder animations from the dock - the lack of animations in b1/2 has been really jarring.

    I would expect animations to be greatly improved, particularly on the iPad. It's not as noticeable on iPhone with smaller screen but on iPad, they seem to take forever to complete, like swirling images into our out from centre of screen. Apart from that, I really like ios7. What is it with a handful on here whingeing about non developers having their say. Clearly Apple arent bothered

    Snappier Safari ;) and more MR forums topics about how bad iOS 7 icons are and how bad iOS 7 interface is in general...

    Hopefully fix most of the lag and performance issues on the iPad!

    Kinda like beta 2 fixed most lag on the iPhone.

    Feature wise.... I don't think any.

    I'd like speed improvements for the iPhone 4, at least in the final version. There aren't any real arguments against that, I mean iOS 6 is nearly faster than 5 was, even with a jailbreak and quite a few tweaks/apps like bitesms, Zephyr, quick toggles (NCSettings) etc., iOS 6 has far less lag than the current beta of iOS 7. So in theory the 4 should be very capable to run the new OS fluently.

    Hopefully, it'll bring crash/stability fixes and faster animations! The animations really slow down the entire OS. If you go back to a device on iOS 6 such as an iPhone 4, it beats my 4s in load times because its animations are faster!

    Optimisation in terms of speed and fluidity. Also updated icons, along with revised looks for stock apps.

    Hoping for this as well.

    I got so used to the animations in iOS 7, when I saw someone using iOS 6 I forgot how fast it was!

    I heard that beta 3 will allow Siri to read your thoughts and report them to the NSA. She's also been given an emotion update and will get really jealous every time you look at another woman (or guy if you prefer).

    Oh...and so the trolls don't have to say it, I'll take care of it for them: "What does it matter, iOS 7 sucks and will destroy Apple. I can't wait to switch over to Android". Hope that makes them happy.

    beta 2 was a huge improvement stability and battery life wise for me in case of iPhone 5.

    I would expect that the same happens with iPad in the beta 3.

    Currently the lag and crashing and random reboots are very irritating....but then its a beta and that always happens in beta :D

    Beta 3 better fix all of the lagging in the iPod touch 5th gen, there were more bugs and crashes in SpringBoard more than beta 1. I've reported all of my findings to Apple, and I am hoping they are reviewing and fixing it. Beta 3 is supposedly due July 8th...

    Baby pandas.

    Probably just improvements. Maybe faster transitions and fixes?
    I think they're saving major additions for the Fall. I most definitely think we'll see some surprises.

    I'm expecting more core stability and feature fixes.

    What I'm not expecting are app icon changes, UI changes.

    we'll see I guess :)

    Up next in the music app.
    A iPad music app which doesn't look like a scaled iPhone music app.
