  • Crash logs now appear in Diagnostics & Usage Data in Settings.
  • Loading a large iTunes Match library should no longer take an especially long time to load.
  • Fix bug that caused all tones to sound like the default.
  • Settings for Touch ID and Pass codes now found in the main settings menu
  • The calendar now has a new ‘list view’ toggle.
  • Dark keyboard option removed.
  • New accessibility option added called ‘Button Shapes’
  • Control Center now has a new bounce animation.
  • Music labels now show the audio source.
  • In the Restrictions Settings panel now there is a ‘Car Display’ toggle.

The thought of Apple increasing their presence in the car is very intriguing.  It is sounding as though this will be an integrated, built in solution with new cars models starting in 2014.
