Apple released the first beta of iOS 9.3 on January 12th. Since then, six more beta versions have been released, the last of which, iOS 9.3 beta 7, was released on March 14th.
Perhaps the loudest feature of the upcoming update is the Night Shift mode, for which a switch in the Control Center was recently screwed on. Night Shift, based on the data on the time and location of the device, automatically changes the display colors to warmer colors and reduces the intensity of blue shades at nightfall, thereby reducing the strain on the user's eyes.
Also, the new version iOS offers us the ability to password-protect Notes and configure access to them via Touch ID, modified News, new quick actions 3D Touch for stock applications such as Settings, Weather, Health, Compass , iTunes Store and App Store, the function of duplicating a live photo as a static one, various improvements to the Health app, support for Apple Music in CarPlay and a completely new Classroom app that gives the ability for multiple students to log in with their Touch ID and use the same device with individually configured profiles.
A huge number of beta versions have been released for iOS 9.3 even though the list of new features and changes is not very extensive. In these beta, some minor improvements to the Night Shift function and other minor fixes were made; perhaps the most significant is the addition of a switch for Night Shift in the Control Center. In comparison, only six beta versions were required to prepare for the release of iOS 9, a very extensive update with over a hundred new features.
When will iOS 9.3 be released?
The question naturally arises: when Apple will stop releasing beta and make a public release of the new version of the mobile OS? Judging by the company's habit of releasing software simultaneously with the events at which its products are presented, there is almost complete confidence that iOS 9.3 will be released the day after tomorrow, March 21, immediately after the spring event Apple “Let us loop you in ”. We can assume that the presentation of this update will take place at the event. It is also expected that tvOS 9.2, watchOS 2.2 and OS X 10.11.4, also in beta testing, will be released at the same time.
