And here we go, another round of iOS 7 beta. It feels as if we are starting to get close to this going GM. Probably a few more weeks of beta, but September is right around the corner.

I can't believe that you don't have all of the changes listed yet Chris, you're slipping! ;)
As one of the 10 people who listen to the podcast, you know I'm a staunch supporter of the NDA. I let others play with legal fire by reposting notes. I've had my outing with Apple in 2008 and still paying the price in broken everythingiPhone links. :(

Great point, I thought you were going to say that you're 1 of the 10 people that stick to the NDA!

This beta works way smoother than beta 4 thank God, no reboots, no shutting down of apps, all my apps work fine, and the new icons in settings are nice. Still can't resize wallpaper for the lock or homescreen though, hope that gets fixed.

The changes I've noticed with beta 5 are Reminders now make an audible alert (they didn't in the previous betas for me), animations are snappier and the eic app still crashes.

When waking iPhone up while charging, it'll show the battery percentage under the time for a few seconds.
Siri sounds even more human!
Panoramic walls don't work.

Agreed. People need to play with a beta for more than an hour before pronouncing it better. I've been running Beta 4 since it came out and never had a reboot - until this morning.
I haven't had a reboot yet, with my beta 4 I'd get a reboot every hr or so like clockwork. Only had 1 app crash on me which was my delivery app. None whatsoever with any other app, had multiple crashes with apps on beta 4, and now I can actually open up the Slice app.
