The fifth iOS 7 beta is out and the new operating system is coming that much closer to fruition.
Per 9to5Mac, a little over a week after iOS 7 beta 4, Apple has seeded iOS 7 beta 5 to developers via and over-the-air Software Update. The previous beta brought several minor interface and performance tweaks to the operating system and beta 5 will likely continue doing that.
The new beta adds the following fixes and changes:
- All Settings icons redesigned (left is new).
- More Yahoo presence.
- New Twitter icon in share sheet.
- Can now disable Control Center while in apps.
- Major performance improvements across the system.
- Camera swipe access from Lock screen is easier.
- New slide to power off design.
- New in-call icons.
- New option to pull down on a banner.
- Some transparency, blur, UI animation changes across the system.
- Can access icons in a folder during animation.
- Some blurs and effects disabled on iPad mini (likely to improve performance).
- Users can now bring back “on/off” labels on switches. Enable in Accessibility.
iOS 7 is expected to be released this fall as well as feature a significant redesign and new features for the mobile operating system.
