Apple has rolled out the latest beta version of iOS 7 to developers. And it includes a string of tweaks that are set to make Cupertino’s new-look platform even sharper.
The Settings app has been given a splash of colour, with icons no longer simply blue. It now looks much more polished and less like a work in progress.
Control Center has also been granted some new features, with the ability to switch off the do-it-all function when using apps.
That means users won’t accidentally swipe up and open the control page while gaming or flicking through tweets.
Other changes include minor tweaks to app icons like Twitter, a change in how names are displayed in Messages and a new look for the on-screen power off slider bar.
iOS 7 is due to get its final release on the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPad around the same time as the launch of the next-generation iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.
Those devices are expected to be revealed at the end of September.
