Just under a month after it seeded iOS 7.1 (Beta 2), (an update which is thought to have added all the necessary software support for the company’s upcoming ‘iOS in the Car’ feature), Apple has tonight seeded the third beta of iOS 7.1 to developers.

The pre-release version of the upcoming update, (build number, 11D5127c), is thought to include a number of minor changes to the mobile OS, specifically in regard to the software’s user interface. Apple appears to have toned down some of the florencent colours seen on its stock icons in this version, as shown by the screenshots provided by 9to5Mac’s Zac Hall.

The call screen has also seen some minor visual improvements in this version, demonstrating the continued work that Apple’s design team is likely carrying out on the software.
