Here comes a new beta for developers. iOS 7.1 beta 5 is just seeded to developers in order to test the new changes and get the feedback and reports regarding any further bugs and enhancements. Apparently two changes are observed in today’s beta. One is about Siri and another is about Keyboard.
Apple has added new natural-sounding Siri voices for English (Australia), English (UK), Chinese and Japanese. They have also redesigned the Caps and Shift keys of Keyboard.

We will update you if we find more changes in it.
Here are few more changes we got to know about iOS 7.1 beta 5.
1) In the calendar list-view togger is now bolder than the previous version.
2) When purchasing a single song in the iTunes Radio, there is a new button to buy the whole album along with the option to buy single song.
3) The “Motion” option to disable the parallax effect in wallpapers in now renamed as “Perspective Zoom”.
4). And the most importantly from jailbreak perspective, the more exploits used in Evasi0n 7 has been fixed in this beta version. Apple fixed some exploits in iOS 7.1 beta 4 and now one more is fixed in today’s release, as told us by iH8sn0w. The official evad3rs team is still silent on this matter as they have decided not to comment on any beta release. So we don’t think there will be any update of evasi0n7 to support iOS 7.1 beta 5.
