iOS 7 Beta 5 Changes: A Visual Walkthrough

IOS 7 Beta 5 Changes: A Visual Walkthrough

As we march towards the release of iOS 7 in a couple months, Apple has released the fifth beta of its mobile OS. Here's what we've noticed so far about today's changes.

The icons in Settings have been tweaked like so:

Icons in-call are now rounded just like on the lockscreen:

Slide to power off has also been tweaked. Beta 5 is on the left and beta 4 is on the right:

You can now disable Control Center when in an app:

Depending on what colour iPhone 5 you have, the install screen adjusts accordingly:

See anything else, let us know!



    How do you end a call again?

      1. Get a bucket.
      2. Hold down the home button until the dual-tone tells you Siri is 'listening'
      3. Tell Siri - 'Hang up on this fool.'
      4. Fill the bucket with water.
      5. Siri will ask - 'Did you say, 'Hang upon dish foot?'
      6. Drop the iPhone on the bucket of water.
      7. Laugh maniacally - screaming 'I SAID HANG UP ON THIS FOOL!!' at the bucket.

      Be careful not to get electrocuted doing this.

        You out trolled me. Well played sir.

          Thanks for crossing the bridge. Please - call again.

    Lookin' good. Can feel we're getting close to final build. Running very smooth and responsive.

    I like the simplicity of the older beta settings icons, but a splash of colour does help.

    Pause and play your music using your headphone's mic button from the music app now works. It was broken in beta 4. I thought my headphones were broken until I tried it on an ios6 phone.

      Thank goodness for that. I was wondering if it was my headphones or beta 4 too.

      Awesome, I have been waiting for this to be fixed!

    Doesn't anyone have a patent on "7" ?

    "Depending on what colour iPhone 5 you have, the install screen adjusts accordingly"

    For the iPhone 5C or M perhaps?

    Bat is running better on my 5, 47% 28 hours since last charge

    Battery life is so good under iOS 7. I'm getting home from work with well over 70% remaining. Under iOS 6 I was lucky to have 20% left.

    I'm curious as to how this runs on the iPhone 4. iOS 6 runs very poorly. I don't know whether to just deal with this or take a gamble on iOS 7.

      I have to admit something shameful.... On my iPhone 4 I'm still running whatever iOS it was that still had Google Maps as the default map app... 5.1.3 I think?

      Just done the beta 5 update ( first time installed ) on my iPhone 4 32Gb

      Seems to be running reasonably smooth, still has some lag issues ( plays catchup ) just the same as iOS 6 but feels more adapted to the phone design ( screen size & layout )

      Just having an issue with my new control center not sliding up, waiting on music to sync so i can reboot and see if that fixes it...

    On my iPad, Notification Center, Control Center and Siri no longer have the blurry frosted glass overlay effect - just a slightly transparent white or black background. The dock, spotlight search, folder backgrounds etc retain the frosted glass.

    My iPad is a 3rd-gen, it may be they've decided it's not fast enough for those effects at full-screen.
