“Apple today released the fifth beta of iOS 7.1 to registered developers for testing purposes, following the release of the fourth iOS 7.1 beta on January 20,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors. “The update has a build number of 11D5145e and is available via an over-the-air update and through Apple’s developer center website.”
“According to the release notes, iOS 7.1 beta 5 includes new natural-sounding Siri voices for English (Australia), English (United Kingdom), Japanese, and Chinese (Mandarin – China),” Clover reports. “It also notes that a compact version of Siri is bundled with the release for the new languages, but can be expanded to the more natural voice after install.”
Clover reports, “Earlier betas of iOS 7.1 have introduced a number of features, including ‘Button Shapes’ in Accessibility, more prominence for Touch ID and Passcode options, a new look for several aspects of the Phone dialer and shutdown screen, a new animation for ‘Slide to Unlock’ and a slightly revamped color for the Phone, FaceTime, and Messages app icons.”
