Apple figured releasing iOS 7.1 beta 2 would be a great way to kick off the weekend. If you're running the beta, download it now and share what's new in this thread.

Here's the complete changelog, made publicly available by BGR.

Notes and Known Issues
The following issues relate to using iOS SDK 7.1 beta 2 to develop code.

Bluetooth
Known Issue

32-bit apps running on a 64-bit device cannot attach to BTServer.

CFNetwork
Notes

A compatibility behavior has been added to address an issue where some web servers would send the wrong Content-Length value for “Content-Encoding: gzip” content. Previously, NSURLConnection and NSURLSession would send a “network connection was lost” / NSURLErrorNetworkConnectionLost (-1005) error in this situation.

The compatibility behavior applies only if the Content-Length value exactly matches the expanded gzip’d content. It won’t apply for “off by 1” or similar miscounting.

Crash Logs
Fixed in iOS 7.1 beta 2

Crash logs now appear in Diagnostics & Usage Data in Settings.

iCloud
Known Issue

If you create a new iCloud account during setup assistant, you may encounter an error when trying to enable iCloud Keychain.

Workaround: Select Setup Keychain Later in setup assistant, then enable iCloud Keychain in Settings.

iTunes
Fixed in iOS 7.1 beta 2

Loading a large iTunes Match library should no longer take an especially long time to load.

Music App
Known Issue

Audiobooks fail to play.

Safari
Notes

A property, minimal-ui, has been added for the viewport meta tag key that allows minimizing the top and bottom bars on the iPhone as the page loads. While on a page using minimal-ui, tapping the top bar brings the bars back. Tapping back in the content dismisses them again.

For example, use <meta name=”viewport” content=”width=1024, minimal-ui”>.

UIKit
Known Issues

  • If a UITextField or a UILabel that is baseline aligned with constraints has attributes that change after the constraints have been added, the layout may be incorrect. The exception to this is -setFont: on UILabel, which should work as expected.Workaround: Avoid making changes in UITextField or UILabel after adding baseline-alignment constraints. If you must make changes, you should remove the constraints and then reapply them afterward. Note that this is a performance hit, so don’t do it unless it is necessary.
  • The backIndicatorTransitionMask from a storyboard or a xib will not be interpreted correctly at runtime.Workaround: Set the backIndicatorTransitionMask in code.

It appears Apple is listening to people with this update. Shapes turns links into the buttons, but from what I've seen, they are awful looking.

That's good that they fixed the crash logs. Hopefully, we won't need them as much on 7.1. :D

Has everyone seen this you must have a registered dev udid to install beta 2 http://iClarified.com/36673
Just to clarify - you do not have to be a developer. You just have to get your UDID registered on developer's account. They each get 100 testing slots.

Also, please update your Tapatalk app. The old version is leaving links in the signatures. I removed your link.

i installed it last night. so far I'm not noticing much of an improvement in transition speeds like some people have mentioned. they must be more sensitive that I am.
