  • Voice Memos App Not Currently in iOS 7 Beta 1, But May Return in Future Beta


    For unknown reasons, the Voice Memos application, popularly used for capturing audio-only recordings, is missing from iOS 7 beta 1, but a leaked screenshot from a WWDC 2013 developer session seems to imply that the application isnít gone for good.

    Shown above is the leaked screenshot (via MacRumors); the Voice Memos application can be seen in all of its black and white glory at the very bottom of the display in the last row of home screen applications above the dock. The application resembles an audio wave rather than a microphone like it did in iOS 6.

    Although the Voice Memos application isnít accessible in iOS 7 beta 1, it is expected to return in a future beta or by the final release. In fact, many things are expected to change from iOS 7 beta 1 to the final release this Fall, but this isn't much of a surprise since the betas are for testing only.

    Notably, a lone developer even found some interesting hidden settings in iOS 7 beta 1 that might become accessible to users by the final release, so we already know Apple hasn't given us the whole story just yet.

      Hopefully it's missing because they're working on a better icon. I'm not one of those people that hates all the icons in iOS 7, but a couple (Newsstand, Contacts, Game Center, Safari, Settings) are just terrible. And I've never used a word that derogatory to describe anything Apple's ever designed. Half are almost plain white and the other half are obnoxiously colorful. I know it's a stale topic already but that Voice Memo one shown in the picture is just dreadful.

      The Game Center icon doesn't make any damn sense.

      Game center makes sense to me. Maybe because i have kids. But bubbles in my house represent that we are playing. Together. I have yet to find something that really bothers me with ios 7 even in the first beta.

      I amend that. The modmyi app runs terrible. Sorry but it does. Unless im in landscape.

      And i cant upload a photo.

      So does anyone know if the jailbreak devs found out that exploits still exist? Because if apple has patched them, there wouldn't be any reason for there not to be a jailbreak for 6.1.3.

      I have kids too but it still doesn't make sense to me. And yes, modmyi barely works with the beta.

      You can expect that I be fixed 2 months after the public release of iOS 7. That's about how long it takes for them to update the app.

      I use it all the time - lectures, training sessions for work, and meetings.

      2 months! The app doesn't even work on iOS 6 properly. Tap status bar to scroll to the top doesn't work, can't upload images, constantly get "administrator has disabled" messages, when I open an article and scroll to the latest post app automatically takes me the top. Talk to Anthony and Kyle about 2+ months ago and nothing has changed.

      Not a fan of how the social share widget isn't in iOS 7. Plus the battery drain, so I downgraded back to iOS 6.1.4. Maybe the battery issue was just the iPhone 5. But the battery lasted a lot longer today on 6.1.4.

      The battery drain is because it isn't optimized. It is a beta for a reason.
