Two weeks following its 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple has seeded a second beta of the upcoming iOS 7 to developers. The new seed is available in iOS Settings via the Software Update section. It should arrive on Apple’s Developer Portal as a full download later today.

The new beta likely focuses on performance improvements and bug fixes as this is what Apple tends to focus on during major iOS release beta phases. Earlier today, we published an extensive look at changes between initial iOS release betas and the launched version. It is likely that iOS 7 will see multiple refinements between now and launch.

We will follow-up with any changes found in this new beta. As always, you can reach us at with anything you find.

iOS 7 includes an all-new user interface and features such as AirDrop peer-to-peer file transfer functionality, Control Center for quickly accessing settings, a new Photos app, integration with cars, and new Siri voices and options.

iPad version is out as well!
