On Monday 8th July , just 2 weeks after Beta 2, iOS 7 Beta 3 was released to registered Apple developers. This time it included better support for the iPad and iPad Mini, something which was missing from the first and second Beta. It also included a few enhancements to existing apps and features, improvements to speed and performance and the inclusion of a couple more features. One of those features is the ability to set up your device to be controlled by head gestures.
This is somewhat similar to the Air Gesture feature that Samsung included on their Galaxy S4. That allows you to do a number of things, including browsing the internet, reading your emails and controlling music, to name but a few, just by passing your hand over the top of the device, without touching it.

The head gestures feature that Apple has included uses right and left head movements to act as your Home button, activate Siri, open apps or the browser for example. This is just one of the new features that has been included with Apple looking more willing to listen to what their users want this time around.
Some of the other new features include a Control Center that looks suspiciously like jailbreak tweak SBSettings, the ability to view the Notification Center from the lock screen, like IntelliscreenX, another jailbreak tweak. An upgraded app switcher is there, looking like yet another tweak from Cydia, Auxo. Ad a brand new security feature has been included, called Activation Lock.
It’s expected that iOS 7 will be released in September, perhaps towards the end, alongside the new iPhone 5S. Beta 4 of the firmware is rumored for release on 28th July. Subscribe to our newsletter and we’ll keep you up to date with the news as it happens.
