New details about iOS 7 are emerging thick and fast since the launch of iOS 7 beta 2. The latest bit to add in the already growing list is the new on-screen keypad that brings more local elements when compared to that on iOS 6.

While Apple had introduced Hindi and Tamil keypads in iOS 6, it has added the र symbol for Indian Rupee instead of the $ that was present in iOS 6. Other major change in the keypad is that the space button is now a proper space bar and some keys have been moved around to make space for it. We do not know whether this is the final keyboard that would come with the final release or whether Apple would move around the keys even more.

Thanks Dhaval Dinani for the tip!
