iOS 7 New Settings Icons

Apple has released the latest iOS 7 beta for developers today. iOS 7 beta 5 is available to install as an OTA (over the air) update via Software Update in Settings on the iPad and iPhone.

Apple’s servers didn’t seem too be getting hammered too badly when I installed the update earlier this afternoon – and the download and install went quickly for me.

One of the most notable changes in this latest iOS 7 beta is new Settings icons, as shown above. There’s some variety of color on these icons now, and they’re decidedly less spartan than in previous betas.

Another noteworthy change is that Control Center now has an additional setting, which toggles on or off access to it from within apps.

Just as very quick impression after only a short time with iOS 7 beta 5, it also seems a little more stable and a little quicker in places.
