The update as of now is available through the iOS 7 settings application while it will be available soon from the iOS Developer Portal. Although iOS 7 beta 2 brings updates including improving messaging functionality, more realistic Siri Voice, tweaks to the FaceTime along with other features while the third beta includes performance and bug fixes.

iOS 7 Beta 3

Here are the fixes which have been taken care in third beta:

  • When sending music to an Apple TV, advancing to the next track may fail.
  • Audio volume may increase dramatically and unexpectedly during AirPlay.
  • The keyboard is not present in the iCloud Keychain approval dialog after screen unlock.Workaround: Tap on either Don’t Allow or Allow. The keyboard will be presented the next time.
  • If you change the country associated with a phone number in Settings > iCloud > Account Name > Keychain, you will not be able to view the changed country name/code.Workaround: Turn off Keychain Restore, and then turn it back on.
  • If you have “Reset All Contents and Settings” on a device (Settings > General > Reset), you won’t be asked to enter your iCloud credentials to disable Activation Lock prior to erasing. After the device is erased, your device will be activation locked.
  • Workaround: Delete the iCloud account prior to erasing the device. If in this state, enter your iCloud account credentials to unlock the device.
  • iCloud Keychain users who set up an additional device will receive an approval request to the other devices with iCloud Keychain turned on. The approval request will not be displayed if their screens are off and the devices are idle.Workaround: Wake up any peer device to accept the approval request.
  • In iOS 7, Find My iPhone and Bookmarks toggles are no longer supported on secondary iCloud accounts. When you update your device with either of these options enabled on a secondary iCloud account, they will be turned off with no user notification.Workaround: Set up the primary iCloud account via Settings/iCloud and then enable Find My iPhone or Bookmarks.
  • On rare occasions, users might experience difficulties setting up iCloud Keychain on some of their devices.Workaround: A temporary Reset iCloud Keychain button is available in iCloud Settings > Account > Account Security.
  • On a clean install, launching Messages presents an empty message list instead of a new compose window.
  • The existing Messages database may be deleted after a restore or upgrade if: You do not sign in to iCloud during the Setup Assistant and the iMessage and iCloud accounts use different IDs.
  • MPMediaPickerController has been disabled for this seed. It will immediately return as if the user canceled the selection.
  • Newsstand background downloads that use HTTP basic or digest authentication will prompt the user with authorization alerts (NSURLConnectionDelegate Protocol callbacks forconnectionShouldUseCredentialStorage and willSendRequestForAuthenticationChallenge are not called correctly).
  • In General > Background App Refresh, the per-app settings are not honored.
  • After erasing the device from Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content & Settings, CrashReporter logs will no longer be copied from the device to the computer.
  • Workaround: Restore the device from an IPSW instead of using Erase All Content & Settings on the device.
  • Passcode Lock and Auto-lock time settings are not always respected. Sometimes the device does not require a passcode when the settings indicate it should.
  • Some apps may receive duplicate push notifications or no notification.
  • The app switcher does not show all of the suspended apps.
  • When a device without a passcode is connected to an untrusted computer, iTunes will tell the user to approve on the phone, yet the phone never asks the user to approve. The phone is trusted anyway, so there is no functional impact, but the UI is missing.
  • UISwitchonTintColors is always green irrespective of what it’s set to.
