iOS 7: Beta 3 Tweaks Fonts, Folders, Music Player, Calendar, App Store – Video

Adjust text size:  

iOS 7 Beta 3 includes new visual tweaks that make the software more usable, such as new folder thumbnails, Calendar changes, a redesigned Music Player app, and new fonts.

One noticeable change at first glance is that folder thumbnails are now more transparent, but the folders themselves (when accessed) are the same as before.

When users select the Increased Contrast Accessibility option, many elements in the iOS 7 user interface will lose their transparency, including the virtual keyboard, Control Center, and Notification Center.

Calendar now shows which days have events attached to them via a small gray dot underneath the respective date. Just tap the day and the events are instantly displayed.

The Music Player application now shows the time along with the lock-screen controls, while the app itself includes a redesigned tab bar, a new now-playing screen, and tweaked navigation.

The tab bar in the App Store is also redesigned and sports a new app-installation animation which works much like an oven timer.

According to several screenshots making the rounds today, iOS 7 Beta 3 also uses new fonts that make text and several UI elements easier on the eyes.
