    [WARNING: As always, if you're concerned about a potential impact on JB, do NOT upgrade until more is known about today's release]

    Apple has just released iOS 7.1 beta 2 to its developers, providing a number of bug fixes for iTunes Match (Loading a large iTunes Match library should no longer take an especially long time to load) and slight modifications to Touch ID.

    Additionally, according to the fixes cited in the iOS 7.1 beta 2 change log and release notes, crash logs now appear in Diagnostics & Usage Data in Settings.

    Today's release follows iOS 7.1 beta, which was released on November 18th. As of this writing, the latest available public version of iOS remains iOS 7.0.4.

    iOS 7.1 beta 2 is now available for download as an over the air (OTA) update and it should also be available on Apple’s developer portal before long.

    Doesn't work unless you have a dev account. I updated from 7.1 and my phone bricked. Had to restore to 7.0.4

    7.1 won't go GM (public release) till end of Jan or start of Feb 2014 like 6.1. Don't expect to see the 7X JB until then.

    Yes Apple now require you to have Dev a/c or your UDID registered to update to 7.1b2 (about time they sorted this) Its for Devs only...

    Since apple has just released ios 7.1b2, I can't see them doing a public release this year. The almighty jailbreakers would not waste an exploit on a beta. I really can't wait to see what tweaks will come for the comm centre hope we get db settings integration.

    This release will not lead to any jailbreaks getting released. 7.1 appears to be on a schedule to come out at the same time 6.1.did, end of January. If a jb is possible, it'll be out a week or so after 7.1 drops. But the messages from the evaders have been so sparse it's impossible to know what's happening. I'm sure that's by design.

    Well, at least the alert sounds issue has been fixed in b2. What sort of modifications to Touch ID are you referencing? I didn't see anything in the release notes.

    I'm getting 4 hours of battery with a full charge tops and starting shutting itself off between 5-30% (I have an iPhone 5 on 7.0.4)

    I've had all versions of 7.0 beta it's fun to watch apple release each version as they fix errors and stabilize the os along the way

    Did u try a restore n setup as a new phone n not from backup?...I would make sure u have a backup somewhere before u do this..I have my contacts calendar n notes in iCloud, n I don't care about game data, so I always setup as a new phone when I restore...could be an app causing it too...never know.. I have decent battery life..I do limit what is turned on as far as location services etc...
