Users who are currently running the iOS 7.1 beta 2 build can update to beta 3 using OTA, which weighs around 70MB-140MB depending on the device. Optionally, devs can log in through the iOS developer center to access IPSW files. The new build number for beta 3 is 11d5127c. Developers can also find a new version of Xcode available on the Dev Center.

iOS 7.1 brings several improvements to accessibility, and is also expected to improve the stability and performance of iOS 7 on older hardware. Devices that support iOS 7 will also run iOS 7.1, including Pad Air, iPad 2, iPad 3 ,iPad 4, iPad mini, iPad Mini Retina, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, and the 5th generation iPod touch.

There is no timeline for a public release, but iOS betas typically run through 5-6 developer builds before being pushed out to the wider public.

Those interested in learning more about the developer release can find some additional user provided notes on MacRumors forums.

    I wish one thing they would do, and is available on OSX, is to be able to prioritize WiFi signals. I have access to two routers in my house but I want to be able to use only one most of the time. Unfortunately the other signal must be stronger and always comes up instead of the one I need.
