    This is a test to see if they fixed the scrolling feature typing in comments on this site. Nope...not fixed. Further testing for other bugs.

    Nice to see they made it OTA. I remember the iOS 6 betas not being OTA.
    I could be mistaken.

    Edit: I'm very mistaken. I think the only one that didn't get OTA was the last
    beta to GM.

    You're mistaken.

    I wish there was a way to delete updated apps in the App Store. Yes thanks I know I updated youtube the other day...now let me delete that history.

    I turned off the auto-update on iOS 7 and it still didn't solve that annoying a$$ problem
    for me either. I'm with you. I don't need to be reminded for so long that I updated an
    app 4 days ago. I've moved on.

    So far it seems smoother. Animations are faster (parallax as well as animations behind menus with transparencies). Settings app navigation seems faster also.

    Yes. Seems they added a voice memo app and fixed the code enough to speed everything up. I hope that helps with battery life.

    *Edit* updated Siri voices are now working, and Siri seems faaaaaaster.

    Just did some testing. Siri is lightning fast now.

    The entire OS is so much smoother. Try the app switcher, its butter now.

    Hi guys, first time on this forum so hello to everyone. iphone 5 64gb 3g with ios 7 beta 2 installed just like a minute ago. most of my apps work just fine except for the one important one messages. the messages app on my phone crashed last week and i cannot start it and send text messages or anything. i can only read my messages through the notification menu. now i have just installed beta 2 hoping that this would solve the problem (thought maybe its just a beta 1's problem) but it has not. the app simply starts and shuts down instantly. i'm startng to think something is wrong with my phone. yesterday i used the backup from the first day of the beta 1 and restored my phone, the messages started to work but no so well and then after a few hours i was back to where i started.
    well lets hope beta 3 will fix my problem, or maybe someone here may have encountered the same issue and has a solution. hope to know you all

    iPhones can brick at anytime....beta or public releases. It happens.

    It's looking good so far, noticeably smoother. I still can't sync to iTunes though. iTunes sits at "waiting for changes..." forever and the phone gets stuck syncing, even if I disconnect it.

    *Edit* Aaaaaand it just wiped all my music.... Grrrrrrrrr, lol.

    Hang on. You aren't asking how to install beta 2 without having a developer account are you? I didn't think so, because if you were......you'd know that we aren't going to help you with that one.....

    Never once have I seen or heard someone report a device being bricking unless something went way wrong or the person did not have valid knowledge of what they were doing or how to fix it...


    But.. Yes there will always be a debate on this.....


    People have to always be cautious
