Apple posts iOS 7.1 beta 2 - developers, go get it!

Apple has posted iOS 7.1 beta 2 (5B71f) to the Developer Center. It's under non-disclosure agreement (NDA), so we can't report on what, if any, changes are included. Given the turn-around time on iOS 7 in general, however, it's not hard to imagine more bug fixes and improvement enhancements are in order.

Wasn't initially available OTA but is now... For me anyway. :)

It's only interesting if they fix all the UI behaviour problems. We'll have to wait for 8.0 before they even begin that work.

Dealwagon says:

Maybe safari crashes are fixed. :(

they weren't in the video I saw with the initial beta. Buy I am keeping my fingers crossed, and eyes >0*o<

I hate you guys can't report on it. I guess we will have to wait and see what the new update brings!

Suspect at the rate the betas are coming out, it'll be into the new year before 7.1 goes public.

Sure would be nice if they "remove the lag" ;)

It's gotten smoother on my iPad 3, but it's still kinda crummy at times.

One thing that I love is that they added the holidays to the calendar, now you are able to see everything. I was asking myself why the iPhone calendar didn't have it but now I'm happy to see it

I just hope there is a fix for the strange behavior of deleted cleared voice mail coming back. It is an off, and on problem.

Since updating, my Touch ID doesn't work AT ALL. It won't even acknowledge that I'm attempting to, and when trying to reregister new prints, it just sits there as if I'm not touching it at all. Normal home button functionality is fine, but touch ID has been rendered completely useless.

Vanti says:

Cannot wait for January when 7.1 drops. I usually find that the .1 updates are the most stable and see no need to update after that.
