● Performance enhancements animation tweaks system wide (ie receiving notification will now darken instead of blur on lock screen). Some older device have had some animations blurs and transparencies removed to most likely help with performance.

● Carrier texts are now a fixed width and scroll back in forth instead of being static if the length of the characters are too much [Thanks Doozy]

● Notification Center features white 'clear' button instead of black

● Tweaked options in

● Improved Camera Access from lock screen (easier)

● App store + more prominent for universal apps

● Sync icon now in right side of status bar [Thanks Mahmoud]

Has anybody noticed that if we saved autofills in safari browser, those we saved can be viewed in the safari setting?? Setting>safari>passwords & autofills>saved passwords> There, we can see all the passwords saved! The characters ain't even hidden! That is totally unsafe! (Noticed it in earlier beta versions too. But they still ain't changed it!)

----------------------- >> IOS7 activations available! << ----------------------- >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Just see people comments on my posts below, satisfied with my service and go ahead with me if you like.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< I am an Apple Developer with UDID's slots available. If you want to activate your iOS 7, please send $7 USD via Paypal to (along with your device UDID) this will allow all beta releases manually and even OTA, and my extreme support for 11 months! Why worry about being blocked by Apple down the road or bricking your phone when you can have the real deal? Just because you can activate your phone with the current beta doesn't mean Apple will allow it in any subsequent betas or release candidates and with this method yes. New developer slots available. Hurry and get yours now!-------------------------For people that are here only to say my service are SCAM and i'm a douchebag, and people don't need UDID registered, i'm not here to offend anyone and i'm not intend so, but because of you people are getting their iOS devices going black because of you only, and they are asking me for help day by day. And just one more thing, they are satisfied and i had sent a proof of UDID register to all. And if you say that apple rules doesn't allow to sell UDID slots, you don't know what you are talking, because for all effects i'm not selling UDID slots, i'm selling my precious service and help, even remotely by team-viewer for all they wan't or need in this process, now and in the future, and i haven't anyone unsatisfied, and even when it happens i refund----------------------------

Since you can install without UDID registered i'd advice people to ignore this lame ad.

The animation while closing Control Centre is very quick now. Apps open and close faster than before, the loading screen of apps no more shows old state of the app.

@ STEVE GOD, My home screen shows a green button with a white silhouette of a phone. HOWEVER, Look at the first screen sample of this article iOS7. Look carefully. The same icon CARRIER is blue... bad bad bad. The Cellular icon should be Called the Carrier and remain the tower but in blue. The Carrier then be called the Cellular and displayed in green - like the home screen. And furthermore - since all these are SETTINGS -- all really should remain GREY - colours here are truly bad. THATS just for starters.... Slide bars settings - Some have "i" for on and "o" for off - then on the right vibage says ON and OFF -- YEt look at screen two... WHere are the i and o's -- I hate this freaking inconsistencies Apple is really F__KING up. Screen capture 3 -- Slide to POWER OFF... how bloody ugly. The slide to power off should be in the same location as Slide to Unlock.

Well guess what, it's a new style that some of us want, what apple is doing for people who just want new looks, they never said they wanted more texture or less, just new. For people who want ios 6 style, they can keep it if they want, this is what some of us came for, like the ones below, they don't care if it looks that bad, what if the real steve was here, he may have agreed since the apps are already good enough by usage and looks, he would have agreed for a newer look, think of the ios 7 chart that's over 50% of people choosing ios 7. Sure it may look ugly but whether they like it or not, it's up to them to change it, soon every ios 7 user may like it. How else would apple more texture into apps besides retina and shining and shade behind apps for updating ios?

Yeah, you are very stupid... Do not do critics of something that you don't know. The blue one is the icon for carrier only, more down it is the phone settings that have the same icon than telephone app...

If you go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Short Name you can change the display name to First Name Last Initial, First Initial Last Name, First Name Only, or Last Name Only. Also there is a Prefer Nicknames toggle.

When using the Nike+ app on the lock screen you can not pause the workout or change the song.

You can customize the vibrate method for each tone alert. It's pretty cool check it out.
