Shut Down screen
Apple has changed the look of the shut down screen in iOS 7.1 beta 3. In iOS 7.0.4 and below, the shut down screen displays a large red rectangle which is used to turn off the phone.Now, the shut down screen offers users a different look and feel. Gone is the red rectangle, replaced by a white power icon and a cancel button on the bottom of the screen.
Apple has made a number of stylistic changes inside iOS 7.1 beta 3. One of the biggest changes that the company has made is to the Phone application. The first change is to the look of the buttons when answering a call. In iOS 7.04 and below, the call button is a giant green rectangle that spans across the app.
In iOS 7.1 beta 3, Apple has changed the look of the call button and it’s now a circular button.
The buttons in iOS 7.1 beta 3 are still green and red but they are circles, not rectangles.
