What’s New in iOS 7 Beta 2: iPad Support, New Siri Voices, Messages Enhancements, and More!

Following Apple’s release of the 2nd iOS 7 beta today (and the first iOS 7 beta for iPad), many are wondering exactly what is new and different in the latest build. While we refuse to break the non-disclosure agreement we signed with Apple, many other sites do not feel similarly, and several have outlined detailed lists of changes in the new beta. Aside from linking to a few of these roundups, we do not plan to cover ANY unannounced feature in depth.
