Well that was fast! We just reported that iOS 7.1 beta 4 was in the hands of Apple’s testing partners and would be released soon. Guess what — it’s available for developers to download right now. The iOS 7.1 beta 4 update is available immediately as an over the air download for compatible iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models, and it can also be downloaded on Apple’s developer site. A friend of the site has just provided BGR with Apple’s full change log / release notes for the new build, and they follow below in their entirety.
Notes and Known Issues
The following issues relate to using iOS SDK 7.1 beta 4 to develop code.
32-bit apps running on a 64-bit device cannot attach to BTServer.
A compatibility behavior has been added to address an issue where some web servers would send the wrong Content-Length value for “Content-Encoding: gzip” content. Previously,
NSURLSessionwould send a “network connection was lost” / NSURLErrorNetworkConnectionLost (-1005) error in this situation.
The compatibility behavior applies only if the Content-Length value exactly matches the expanded gzip’d content. It won’t apply for “off by 1” or similar miscounting.
Fixed in iOS 7.1 beta 4
Messages no longer indicates a send failure immediately after sending.
A property, minimal-ui, has been added for the viewport meta tag key that allows minimizing the top and bottom bars on the iPhone as the page loads. While on a page using minimal-ui, tapping the top bar brings the bars back. Tapping back in the content dismisses them again.
For example, use <meta name=”viewport” content=”width=1024, minimal-ui”>.
- Bar button background images are ignored in apps built and deployed to iOS 7.1 when they are set using
UIBarButtonItemStyleBorderedas the style argument.Workaround: Use
UIBarButtonItemStyleAnyin this case, or use
- If a
UILabelthat is baseline aligned with constraints has attributes that change after the constraints have been added, the layout may be incorrect. The exception to this is
UILabel, which should work as expected.Workaround: Avoid making changes in
UILabelafter adding baseline-alignment constraints. If you must make changes, you should remove the constraints and then reapply them afterward. Note that this is a performance hit, so don’t do it unless it is necessary.
backIndicatorTransitionMaskImagefrom a storyboard or a xib will not be interpreted correctly at runtime.Workaround: Set the
