I looked at that lock screen and thought, Is this a Windows Phone which I see before me?

What gave it away? The never before seen on an iPhone combination of a picture and the time?

The style of it, the font, it gives the same vibe.

All I will say is it looks better on the ipad than iphone from the videos. Especially multiple tasking and music player.

It just seems so much better on a 5 & iPad. It doesn't look right on a 4/4S.

Looks better on the ipad on general. Looks awful on iphone.

Atleast ipad can take advantage of the multi tasking better.

No it still appears to lock the phone up although if you leave it long enough it will quit itself and go back to the home screen.

Ebay could be blocking the app on 7 as it seems to be a time out issue similar to Natwest blocking usage with their app.

The improvements are definitely noticeable in Beta 2. Much of the lag has gone.

I wish you hadn't said that

This is interesting though - it claims that many people testing Beta 2 have almost doubled their battery life.

I'm tempted to try it now, but I suspect it'll only be a few weeks before Beta 3 ..

Imzdl.com is a great place to get iOS 7 beta and it's only $8. Not sure how they do it so cheap but it works and iOS 7 is brilliant in my opinion

Not sure about that site - is it a legal download site ?

(And I don't ask that to be all 'forum police' or anything - genuinely interested!)

genuine question (before i get shouted at).

What features do people feel are genuinely 'novel' in the latest iOS ? Is there anything there not already available (on W8, Android or even in the App Store) ?

From what I have read it seems mostly a visual change whilst adding multitasking. Things like the rumoured 'head jerl' to change volume (???) is that just an effort to now think of ways to control that havent already been used elsewhere ?

I mean, we have face unlock, eye tracking, non-touch touch .... are all sides just trying to think of other 'novelty' features to add in ? Face unlock, for example, is pure novelty IMHO. Great fun to demo but very few use it I would say.

Simple, they buy developer accounts at $99 each which with each one they can add up to 100 UDID's to that account. $8 x 100 = $800.

However, this is against Apple's T's & C's and can result in the account being cancelled and you ending up with a bricked iPhone (until the official release).

While Imzdl go laughing and rubbing their hands together all the way to the bank.
They must of made a small fortune so far with a profit of $701 on each developer account they've opened.

I suppose it's not a 'feature' in any practical sense, but i do like the parrallax scrolling on the home screen.

I can't remember using sub-folders before on my S3, but I suspect there are plenty of apps to take care of that though.

Seems to be true.

Unplugged my iPhone at 7:30 this morning and it was at 99% full at 10:30
