Could anyone please confirm whether or not Siri will now read out new messages when the phone is locked? Usually it says you have to unlock the phone first, which I'm not going to do whilst driving.

Thanks!

Beta 2 seems to have better battery life, but not as good as iOS 6. Getting there. Beta 2 made things a lot smoother. 

 

I'll test the Siri text message reading next time I get a message, Hardcore Til I Die.

I agree beta 2 is a nice upgrade. Definitely more speedy, and battery life is improved. Good question on Siri though Hardcore

Beta 2 appeared to run faster on my 4s compared to Beta1. However, it is far less stable for me. Random crashes, graphical glitches on multitasking. A reboot helped with the glitches but the crashes are there.

 

Music controls: When you are playing back music, and the screen is off, waking the phone shows the music controls of the music app, with album art etc, but no time is displayed on the screen. You need to unlock the phone to get the time. Not a fan of that.

 

Anyways, fun to play around with, but I've gone back to iOS6.

Is it worth losing my jailbreak on my iPad Mini? Only main tweak I use is BTC Mouse & Trackpad, but it isn't that serious to have to use a mouse.

Still trying to decide that myself. I have it on my iP5 so I am really thinking I may not update my Mini because its pretty much the same thing

Overall, I like the new look of iOS 7. I'm sure the minor UI inconsistencies will be fixed by release (I hope.) I'll never understand why Apple doesn't let us just download useless apps like Newsstand, Passbook, etc. If I wanted to use them, I would download them. They don't bundle iBooks, so why bundle those?

Has anyone had any problems with Wi-Fi? My iPad on 6.1 can find loads of local wireless routers but my iPhone 4 on 7.0 beta 2 barely picks mine up even though I am right next to the router.

Anyone tried it on an iPad yet? as much as I dropped back to iOS6 on my 4 (because GPS is broken)

I have an iPad 3 which doesn't have any GPS to get broken...so might upgrade it over the weekend.
