iOS 7 beta 2 supports all versions (cellular and Wi-Fi) of the iPad except for the original version. The release includes the discontinued third generation iPad and the iPad Mini. All versions of the iPhone and iPod Touch that were supported in the original iOS 7 release are also available in beta 2.
