Apple’s latest iOS 7 beta includes iPad support

There was one thing missing at WWDC 2013 when Apple introduced the refreshed and revamped iOS 7: what it looks like on the iPad. You don’t have to worry about that anymore, though, as the company has officially added iOS 7 support to the iPad and iPad mini with the latest iOS 7 beta.

iOS 7 Beta 2 was seeded to developers yesterday, with Apple added iPad support as a nice little surprise. Having said that, there isn’t anything too radical to take note of. iOS 7 on the iPad looks and acts like iOS 7 on the iPhone, just on a larger scale. Gone are the felt backgrounds and skeuomorphic elements, with large swaths of white instead filling the screen as you go to setup the tablet.

And even then, we imagine that Apple will be changing and tweaking things right up to the official release of iOS 7 to the public later this year. Still, it’s good to know that the company is busy making the necessary preparations for all its iOS devices. If you want to see exactly what iOS 7 on the iPad looks like, 9to5Mac has put together a slew of screenshots that show the new interface. There’s a nice video walkthrough that you can watch too that should give you a better idea of iOS 7 looks like in action on a larger screen.
